Thailand: Loy Krathong festival draws crowds to riverside in Bangkok

Entertainment Bangkok, Thailand - 06 November 2014

Thai festival goers gathered by the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok to float decorative baskets for Loy Krathong on November 6, 2014, with festivities carrying over into the early hours of November 7.

As well as the floating incense-laden baskets, the festival saw people launching lanterns into the night sky, though officials this year implemented tight restrictions on where the lanterns could be released, and some airlines canceled flights to avoid the potential hazard.

Loy Krathong is celebrated annually in Thailand, as well as parts of Laos and Burma, on the full-moon night of the 12th lunar month.
