Loi Krathong Festival

Yesterday marked the Loi Krathong festival in Thailand. You may have heard of this festival, and you may have seen beautiful images from Loi Krathong such as photos of the sky filled with floating lanterns from Chiang Mai. However for the majority of Thai people partaking in the Loi Krathong festival, it is not a day of grandeur, but of letting go of bad things and act to bring good luck to themself and their family. Here is some footage from Bangkok of what a normal Loi Krathong looks like:
