Loy Krathong is as old as Thai heritage and represents a close bond between Thai culture and water.
Depending of the years, the Thai "Loy Krathong" festival happens in Kowloon City, Tung Chung (Lantau island) or KHU (year 2015).
Participants ask water spirits to sail away their troubles in their Krathongs.
An old Thai proverb says that "When a boy and a girl are launching a KRATHONG together they will be lovers this life or next life".
The "LOY KRATHONG" (ลอยกระทง) event is also celebrated outside Thailand by Thai overseas communities.
