Reason for travelling:Loy Krathong, which means the full-moon festival in Thai, is in the 12th month of the Thai calendar.

On that day, locals will fly the lantern balloons in the night sky and let candlelit and flower-strewn floats move downstream to represent discarding one's negative emotions for the upcoming year. In big cities, people will conclude the show with brilliant fireworks.
