Hello everyone. This late month, Thailand will have the Loi Krathong Festival. This year the Loi Krathong Festival is held on 27 November. For the Loi Krathong festival in northern Thailand. They mostly decorate paper lanterns or cloth lanterns in homes, tourist attractions, and temples. The district where I live has many tourist attractions with Loi Krathong festivals. And now some places have started decorating paper lanterns or cloth lanterns in my district. All of these paper lanterns or cloth lanterns are Lanna style lanterns. Which is unique to the northern of the country.
Two days ago my wife was reading and looking at photos on local facebook of the district where we live. Wat Sri Bunrueang is decorating many Lanna style cloth lanterns during the Loy Krathong festival and people can make merit to buy cloth lanterns from the temple to hang cloth lanterns at the temple. Today me and my wife planned to go to Wat Sri Bunrueang to see the beautiful of the many Lanna style cloth lanterns and make merit to buy cloth lanterns to hang at the temple too. The many Lanna style cloth lanterns from this temple are made by local people.
We sent our son and granddaughter to school first and go to Wat Sri Bunrueang. Today the sky is clear. At first I intended to take photos of the atmosphere on the highway today. But I have to focus on driving. Therefore, I did not take photos of the atmosphere on the highway to share with everyone. Normally if I take pictures of atmosphere and views on highways or country roads. The wife will be the driver.
When we arrived at the temple. We see many Lanna style cloth lanterns from the moment we parked the car outside the temple. We were immediately enjoy when we saw these cloth lamps. Today, besides enjoying looking at these cloth lamps, we also enjoy taking pictures. Take a look, the some atmosphere decorated with Lanna style cloth lanterns in this temple.
