    It's held on the full moon of the 12th lunar month. So, it must be on the 24th.

    Here's a nice site that is updated yearly, contains some swell photos and the Loi Krathong song in Thai and English with an MP3 file you can download in case hearing it endlessly in all shopping venues is not enough for you:

    Yes, my understanding is that it's on the 24th this year.

    We will be in Udon for Loy Kratong, then to Chiang Mai. Nong Prajak Park in Udon also sets off the lovely big hot air lanterns when the sun sets -- they are quite impressive.

    Nothing can compare to setting those floats on their way on the peaceful Anadaman Sea in Phuket. Very tranquil.
