The Loy Krathong festival looks set to attract hundreds of thousands of people.

Consumers looking for an exotic cultural experience this winter might wish to book cheap flights to Thailand before the end of the month.The country is gearing up to host the Loy Krathong festival, which involves processions, light shows and other spectacles taking place in many different areas.Hundreds of thousands of people are set to attend the event, which encompasses locations such as Bangkok, Suphan Buri and Ayutthaya, ETN Thailand reports.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is therefore getting behind the festival wholeheartedly and putting large sums of money towards ensuring it is a success.

Visitors will be particularly excited about this year’s Loy Krathong celebrations, since bad weather forced it to be suspended in 2011.

This comes after TAT revealed the number of Britons visiting Thailand this year is on course to exceed 2011’s figure and come to approximately 810,000, as the UK is now the country’s second largest European tourism market.
