Locals and tourists are joining this event annually. The word ‘loy’ means ‘to float’ and ‘krathong’ means flowers, ‘to float the flowers.’ They say that you need to wish first before letting your krathong float in the river. The Yi Peng is also called Lantern Festival, people buy lanterns then light it and let it fly in the air. They say you need to write your wish in the lantern so that it will be granted. Thousands of people celebrated these festivals in different areas in Thailand.”
