Loy Krathong Festival

Loy Krathong is the Thai tradition which has been annually celebrated throughout Thailand since the Sukhothai period. For this year, in 2021, the date of the celebration should be on the 11th of November.

How people celebrate Loy Krathong

On full moon nights, Thai people normally float Krathong, small lotus-shaped floating receptacles, down rivers or canals. The main purposes of the Loy Krathong festival is to express gratitude and ask for forgiveness from Phra Mae Khongkha (the goddess of water) for throwing rubbish and polluting the water. Many also believe that it is a way to drift away misfortune and bad luck from the past.

Best places in Bangkok to celebrate Loy Krathong

In Bangkok, there are a lot of superb locations for the Loy Krathong festival. The first one is ICONSIAM, the shopping mall on the banks of the Chao Phraya River. The easiest way to get there is to take the Skytrain to Taksin Bridge station and take the Shuttle Boat to ICONSIAM. Another stunning riverside spot is Asiatique the Riverfront featuring a lot of food stalls, pop-up shops and magnificent stage shows. Similar to ICONSIAM, you can just take the Skytrain to Taksin Bridge station and hop on one of Asiatique´s free river ferry shuttles.

Besides these riverfront spots, another popular venue is Lumpini Park, a large verdant green area in the centre of Bangkok. Surrounded by lots of edifices, the colourful lights from those buildings create splendid city views for posting Instagram stories. You can get to Lumpini Park by taking MRT to Silom Station or BTS to Sala Daeng station.

Phuket Bike Week

If you’re in Phuket around mid-April, you will most likely notice big bikes and choppers rumbling around the island, which can only mean one thing – the island is revving up to Phuket Bike Week. Every year over Songkran, bikers from all around the region gather in Phuket to participate in Asia’s largest motorcycle event, which attracts over 10,000 enthusiasts on wheels, including those arriving on riding processions from nearby provinces. The event itself straddles the Thai New Year of Songkran, with activities happening at Patong Beach leading up to the Thai New Year, and restarting at Phuket Boat Lagoon right after.

 

 

Phuket Bike Week Festival Highlights

As the name suggests, motorcycles are the main highlight here. Bikes can be admired in all their glory at special exhibitions or at the bike parade. The festival also features a custom bike contest, and vendors selling everything from bike accessories to complementary apparel to help bikers look the part. A full line-up of entertainment provides many opportunities for family fun, including a beach party with live musical performances and food stalls selling a mix of creative snacks and traditional fare. There are also organised riding convoys around the island, an activity which is open to visitors.

 

 

How to get to Phuket

As Thailand’s premier island destination, Phuket is well connected to domestic and a number of regional destinations. During the high season, several seasonal charters also arrive at its international airport from Europe. From Bangkok, Phuket is just over an hour’s flight away on numerous airlines.

Pattaya International Fireworks Festival

Every year, pyrotechnic teams from around the world converge on Pattaya to light up the night sky in a spectacular display of choreographed fireworks displays. First started in 2009 to celebrate the reign of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great, the annual competition and festival has grown every year; in 2019, teams from Thailand, Argentina, Canada, UAE, Germany, and the Philippines all put on dazzling fireworks shows.

 

 

Fireworks and more

Though fireworks are the main draw to the event, the two-day festival also offers plenty of seaside fun for the whole family. Starting from late afternoon, entertainment acts and fun activities get going on Pattaya Beach Road, which is closed to traffic for the festival. Visitors can enjoy concerts, a parade with marching band and carnival acts, and seek out culinary delights at the food stalls set up along the road. Pace yourself though, because the main festival highlight doesn’t kick off until 8 p.m.

 

Where to watch the fireworks at Pattaya International Fireworks Festival

Fireworks are set off from barges in the middle of Pattaya Bay, so there’s plenty of vantage points to watch the spectacle. Hotels dotted along the bay offer the convenience of watching the fireworks from your sea-view hotel room, but if you want to get closer to the action, just follow the crowds and head to the water’s edge. Each fireworks show lasts approximately 10 – 15 minutes, in between which you can enjoy the beachside entertainment. There’s no entrance fee, so just find a spot and enjoy the show!

Udon Thani

Thung Sri Muang Festival – Udon Thani

Festivals play a key role in the social calendar of towns and cities across Thailand – and Udon is no exception. Once a sleepy town nestled amid the plains of northern Thailand’s Isan region, Udon is now a bustling hub and an important gateway to the country’s North East, and to neighbouring Laos. Each December, the city comes to life during the Thung Sri Muang Festival, a celebration that marks the birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

 

Thung Sri Muang Festival

Starting from 1st December each year, the festival lasts between 12 and 15 days. It’s one of the biggest annual events in Udon, which makes it a great time to visit the city. An extravagant parade of epic proportions kicks off proceedings. Beginning at Rajabhat University, the colourful procession makes its way up to the Fountain Roundabout, the Clock Tower Roundabout and towards Nong Prajack Park. For about two hours, the streets are packed with dazzling costumes and marvellous dance performances, making this the perfect opportunity for visitors to feast their eyes on some authentic local culture. A second parade also takes place on the 5th December, the bank holiday that marks’ the King’s birthday.

The festival itself takes place on the grounds next to the City Pillar Shrine. Hundreds of stalls are set up selling an array of local delicacies, in addition to shops, mini rollercoasters, giant wheels and bumper cars. There’s also plenty of entertainment in the form of Muay Thai competitions, dancing contest and musical performances.

 

 

Getting to Udon

As an important gateway to the northeast of Thailand, Udon is easy to reach by air, rail and bus. Daily flights link the city to Bangkok, in addition to several trains per day. Buses from Bangkok’s Mo Chit Bus Terminal take 8-9 hours to reach Udon. Once you arrive in the city, it’s easy to navigate on foot or bicycle. There are also plenty of tuk-tuks, in addition to songthaew routes around the city centre if you don’t fancy walking.
