|Kratongs are made from banana stalk and leaves with flowers, candles and joss sticks|
When the moon is full, hundreds of thousands of people all over the country float their kratongs on ponds, rivers, canals and beaches (but check the tides as they may cause the kratong to come back which is not good luck!). Loy Kratong is traditionally a time of quiet contemplation and reflection for Thai people to think about the past year and look to the future.
Popular places on Koh Samui to float your kratong are Plai Laem temple and Chaweng lakeside.
