Why lotus flower? On the 27th of November, the Loy Kratong festival event will be organized nationwide. It is a big festival in Thailand. People take and release Kratong to a river or a pond. Kratong can be made of banana stalks and leaves or lotus leaves with a candle attached. Sukhothai’s historical park is the most popular place for the Loy Kratong festival with light and sound effects every year. This year let’s have fun with waterclour paintings embracing Thai culture and after the workshop and the welcome party we will enjoy floating Kratong into the Kok River by the Riverie Hotel where the AIC2023 is organised.
