Celebrating Loy Krathong At The Peninsula Bangkok

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

On Wednesday 12th November, celebrate Loy Krathong on the full moon, with a festival that brings together family members. The Peninsula Bangkok combines the traditions of this age-old festival with an evening filled with contemporary Thai entertainment, fireworks and superb dining.

One of the highlights of the evening is a performance by award-winning traditional Thai puppet show Hun Lakorn Lek from the Joe Louise Theatre. The group has won “The Best Traditional Performance” at the 10th World Festival of Puppet Art 2006, in Prague. This form of traditional art reflects the Thais’ sophisticated culture, knowledge, and creativity of mind and spirit.

Enjoy dinner under the full moon with world-class performances and float a “Krathong” on the Chao Phraya River to bring good luck in the coming months.
