A brilliant night.

The Loy Krathong festival is a yearly event and originated in Sukhothai because it was the capital city many years ago. The festival is in November and is a wonderful display of history, entertainment and a brilliant firework display.

Sukhothai Loy Krathong and Candle Festival
Nov 2014 • Friends
We were so lucky to happen to be in Sukhothai on November 17 for the annual light and sound show called Loy Krathong. Hundreds of singers and dancers in colorful costumes entertain you by the lake in the Historical Park. The show ended with a memorable display of hundreds of large candle lanterns released in to the night sky. They looked like constellations as they rose high in the sky. The next morning you saw the remnants of the lanterns strewn along the road and caught in trees. If you have the ability to schedule your trip around this date, I would highly recommend it.
