5 Riverside Restaurants in Bangkok to Celebrate Loy Krathong Festival

Celebrated annually on the night of November’s full moon, Loy Krathong marks the ancient Thai tradition of honouring the Water Goddess. On lakes, canals and rivers throughout the country, people float small lotus-shaped vessels, known as Krathong, to ‘wash away’ their sins and ask for good luck in the coming year.

Celebrate Loy Krathong in truly memorable fashion with traditional dance show, delectable feasts and a spectacular firework display over the Chao Phraya River at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok.

    The sound of live traditional Thai music will greet you at the Riverside Terrace, where waiters dressed in traditional Thai costume will help you choose from their magnificent buffet. While enjoying the Thai cuisine, you can also watch a classical Thai dance performance, a beautiful parade and Krathong contest. After dinner you can float your own Krathong on the river while fireworks light up the sky.
