Here's why to book cheap flights to Bangkok!!
It’s not too late to book cheap flights to Bangkok for November’s Loi Krathong Festival. This annual event is one of Thailand’s best-loved festivals and is something that all travelers fascinated by Asian cultures should witness at least once in their lifetimes. It takes place during the full moon of the twelfth month in Thailand’s traditional lunar calendar and is a popular time for international visitors who scamper for cheap airline flights and come in droves.
Although the origin of this celebration may have been a Hindu festival, it has been cherished in Thailand for centuries and is one of the most typical events that visitors arriving with the cheapest airline flight tickets can attend. The name, Loi Krathong, comes from the verb “to float” and the word for a banana leaf cup. Thais construct tiny floating boats or baskets from these tough leaves and float them down many of the country’s rivers. The floats are usually filled with flowers, incense, candles and even coins. Some people add personal objects like strands of hair to their floats. Loi Krathong has been nicknamed the Festival of Lights for its annual scenes of brilliantly lit rivers full of tiny, floating candles. Releasing the krathongs into the water has many meanings for Thais. For some, it is an act to honor Buddha or the Water Goddess. For many people, it symbolizes letting go of their problems. You can buy or make your own krathong to join in the celebration. Krathong-making has become a revered art in Thailand and competitions are held each year to try to find the most expertly crafted krathongs. These intense competitions alone will be worth the price of your air flights. Sky Lanterns and Fire Lanterns are also made to celebrate this holiday, and it is a popular time for fireworks shows and beauty pageants.
The main night of this year’s upcoming Loi Krathong festival will be November 10th, so start searching now for the best flight tickets and the cheapest airline. Chiang Mai, a city in the north of Thailand that you can reach by a scenic train ride from Bangkok, is an especially popular place to watch and participate in Loi Krathong. Right in the capital, a good spot to see the festivities is along the Caho Phraya River. This is an excellent time for couples to plan flights to Bangkok as it is also a time to hope for lasting love in a relationship. Many couples release their krathongs together in the water to see how long they will stay together as they float off in the distance. Buy cheap tickets to Bangkok to see this beloved Thai festival and to have the chance to release your own problems and worries into one of Thailand’s beautiful lakes and rivers.
