Something new in Korat downtown

This picture taken accross the street from front of Yamo. The first picture is the building I've seen since I was a child, the old building of Phothong hotel and restaurant at the ground floor. It's the best place to sit and enjoy the view, people watching, life of locals in Korat downtown. I really feel about it when I saw it renovated into a pharmacy shop..

In the full moon night of November every year, the famous Loi Krathong Festival be held in many places, mostly the places nearby the river / canal. This year I enjoyed the Loi Krathong Festival at Bung Ta Lua Water Park. All over the place was decorated with lights. There's some big Krathong in the water. I put coins in Krathong, light the candle and make a wish before float Krathong away. Krathong, usually we made it from banana leaf and fresh flowers. The candles and incense sticks are also placed in the Krathong. To float Krathong, we believe to offerings to the mother of waters for appeasement, also believe it can castaway our grief and misery.

There's also beauty contest.
