In preparation of Loy Krathong this year the city has been adorned with strings of lanterns and lovely lights. There are also a number of safe piers dotted up and down both banks of the Ping River for krathong loying.
There will be two nights of the festival this year, the 31st October and the 1st November. There will be no parade this ear, but many more traditional and cultural events.
Here are some pretty pictures to get you in the spirit of the festival.
