Brunei: Loy Krathong Festival in Thailand

Brunei resident Emma Good Egg visits Thailand and witnesses the Thai festival of Loy Krathong. “One lights the incense sticks and candles, make a wish and float the Krathong down a klong (canal or river). In Chiang Mai, the Ping River becomes a river of flickering lights and its skies a mirror with fireworks and Khom Loys, paper lanterns released into the skies similarly to a hot air balloon.” [Krathong = Lamps]
