We will make traditional Thai krathongs from banana tree trunks, banana leaves, flowers and incense. We will then have a 3 course meal with free flowing drinks on a long tail wooden boat on the river while watching the beautiful lights in the water and sky. After the cruise, you will release your own biodegradable lantern, which is subject to government approval. Last year there were many fires throughout the city due to lantern release and the government banned them on the last night of the holiday. We will try our best to be able to release the lanterns, but if the government stops it, we will just stay on the boat a little longer and enjoy the amazing lights and some more drinks. Each ticket purchased will plant 1 tree around the world. *We have vegan, vegetarian, gluten free options and can cater to all allergies. *This is family friendly and suitable for all ages, but be aware that it will be a drinking environment. *Must be at least 20 years old to purchase the free flowing alcohol event ticket. *If you are sensitive to loud noises, we would not suggest this event or the holiday for you. There are many loud fireworks that go off throughout the entire weekend. *The government will release the official Loy Krathong dates in July. If the event dates change by August 1, 2020 and you can no longer attend, we will refund you by August 10, 2020.

We will start the experience in the garden of the restaurant along the river to create our krathongs. After the krathong workshop, we will get on the wooden long tail boat and will cruise on the river for 75 minutes while eating a 3 course meal. After, we will walk for 5 minutes to a special bridge to release the lanterns.
The traffic will be very busy on this holiday. Give yourself at least 30-45 minutes to get here by car.
