Koh Samui Festivals & Events


Many of the holidays celebrated during the course of the year are Buddhist, but some other very important ones such as the Monarch's birthday, are not religious in origin. Except for the closing of government offices and institutions, and occasional one-day prohibitions on the sale of alcohol, these holidays will not affect leisure activities very much.

On Samui Island, buffalo fights are held only on special occasions such as New Year’s Day and during Songkran, April 13 to 16.

Loy Krathong (Light festival) : have floats, will dazzleLoy Krathong
Thailand's waterways rivers, klongs, even hotel swimming pools will be ablaze with dazing lights on the evening of Nov. 14, when the Kingdom celebrates "Loy Krathong" one of the year's most-awaited festivals.
"Loy" means to float, and "krathong" means a leaf cup. Kratong is decorate by many kinds of flowers, candles with light, incences to float in the canal, river,or sea after pray to get forgive from the God of river that sometime made dirty and thanks for give water to use.
This moniker seems apt as most floating objects you see during Loy Krathong nights are flowers formed like cups, if not artificial petals that look like cups in many angles.
It is a most colorful festival. In most areas where it is celebrated, you will see Thai women resplendent in colorful attire, hair festooned with flowers, and gaily-dressed men, also fully garbed, gather with floats in their hands wherever there's water.
