Glow Beyond: 15 Light Festivals Around The World.
Slide Nr 16
In Thailand, Loy Krathong and Yee Peng compete for attention each November. Both full moon festivals are centred around thousands of individual lights released into the night, as locals bring floats made from coconut shells, banana leaves or bread, decorated with flowers, candles and incense to the river, and watch them float downstream. Elsewhere, paper lanterns are released into the sky. Similar celebrations abound across Thailand and neighbouring countries, and are often counted among the most visually spectacular festivals in the world.
