Loy Krathong is an annual festival celebrated on November’s full moon that marks the ancient Thai tradition of honouring the Water Goddess. Throughout the country you will witness small lotus-shaped vessels, known as Krathong, floating on canals and rivers, as people set them sail believing that it will ‘wash away’ their unhappiness, sadness, bad luck and welcome good fortune in the coming year.

At Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok we celebrate Loy Krathong in truly memorable fashion with traditional dance shows, mouth-watering dishes, a spectacular firework display over the Chao Phraya River. Guests will also receive their own Krathong to float down the River of Kings.

With an idyllic setting on the banks of Chao Phraya River, our Riverside Terrace offers alfresco dining with beautiful and riverside buffet with magnificent international and Thai favourites such as Hors d’oeuvres counter, Hot dishes’ station, Grill station and much more. While enjoying fine cuisine, guests will be entertained by special classical Thai dance performance, a beautiful procession and a ‘Krathong’ contest.
