Besides the sweet and polite, and always wore a smile on their faces, Thais love to have fun and enjoy cheerful celebrations. The amazing festivities in Thailand include both traditional Thai and international festivals, and the events ongoing throughout the year. The traditional festivities reflect Thai customs, cultures and lifestyles, many of which are marked permanently for the tourist’s calendar for the visitors to experience the taste of Thai festivals like Songkran and Loi Krathong.
April brings the warmer climate, and one of the coolest events in the world, as Thais celebrate their New Year with splashing water, the ritual bathing of Buddha images and the paying respects to the elders. Songkran festival is a time for family reunion, where family members return to their home towns and villages, and enjoy the gathering at the temple fairs. The people in the community will be dancing, feasting and merry-making together.
On a full moon night in November, the waterways around the whole country are ablaze with vibrant colors and shimmering spectacle as the Thai people are celebrating Loi Krathong festival. Thai people will launch floats which made of banana leaves and adorned with flowers, decorated candles, and incense sticks onto lakes, ponds, canals, or rivers, to pay tribute to the water goddess, believing that it will carry their wish for happiness and prosperity along with the water flow.
