Agoda.com readies the welcome mat for Loy Kratong deals in Thailand

Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), has pulled together a list of hotels offering great deals for Loy Kratong, one of Thailand’s most romantic and beautiful festivals.

From 24-26 November this year, celebrants will head to Thailand’s many rivers, lakes and canals to take part in a tradition that honors Phra Mae Khongkha, the Goddess of Water, asking for her blessings in the coming year. Celebrants float a little boat – or krathongs – on the water, saying a prayer before pushing it away. In addition, floating lanterns are also released in great numbers, rising into the night sky until they are nothing more than an orange dot. And of course, like any Thai festival, there is endless food, fireworks, and extra-vibrant street scenery.

Loy Krathong

The festival is celebrated throughout Thailand, but it’s most intense in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. In Bangkok, Lumpini Park, Benchasiri Park, Benjakiti Park, or anywhere along the Chao Phraya River are popular locations to take part, while those in Chiang Mai head to the Ping River or simply to the ancient moat that surrounds the inner city.
