Throwing Lotus Festival

One of my favourite festivals in Thailand is the Lotus Throwing Festival in Bang Phli, Samut Prakan. A revered Buddha image is placed on a boat and as it is taken up and down Samrong Canal local people throw lotus flowers onto the boat.

    Hi Richard,

    Do you know when the event will take place this year ?
    At what time ?
    And where does it start and ends ?

    Two years ago I went at a wrong date, two days later after the event : I looked at the wrong magazine who gave an incorrect date ! So this will year, I don’t want to miss it !

    Thanks a lot
