Loy Loy Krathong! It’s that time of the year again—the Loy Krathong Festival in Thailand, usually held on a full moon night. In the old days, we floated Krathongs to seek forgiveness from the water goddess Mae Kongkha. But as we’ve become more aware of the impact of water pollution, we’ve adapted the tradition to be more mindful of the environment. You can now take part in the festival online here!
The festival remains a source of joy for teens and friends, making it a perfect day for outings. If you plan to celebrate outdoors, NooYoo has some new arrival earrings recommended for this upcoming Loy Krathong night.
Where to Celebrate Loy Krathong Festival?
Kasetsart, SWU, Chulalongkorn, and Thammasat are favorite spots for teens and all ages during Loy Krathong. Each year, they host celebrations with unique themes. Students set up exciting activities—shops, music, and special zones. The university Loy Krathong events are lively and super fun!
A famous landmark by the Chao Phraya River loved by both Thais and tourists is Iconsiam. It has fantastic views, many things to do, and special shows. It’s decorated with lots of colorful lights. If you want to take cool pictures to impress your friends on social media, this is the place to be!
NooYoo is on the 5th floor. Stop by to shop before going Loy Krathong.
