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