"How to float krathongs down rivers safely and avoid dangers"
      For the Loy Krathong festival, a significant Thai tradition, where people of all ages float their krathongs down rivers to preserve Thai culture. However, did you know that dangers can arise during the Loy Krathong festival if we are not careful? Today, we have safety tips for the Loy Krathong festival to share with everyone.
  • Choose a location to float krathongs down rivers or in a sturdy and stable boat. The water level should not be too high compared to the riverbanks.
  • If you float krathongs in the middle of a river or on a boat, it's recommended to wear a life jacket.
  • Supervise children closely, especially those who like to swim to collect coins from lanterns or young, restless children.
  • Give a warning signal before lighting fireworks every time. If it's necessary to ignite fireworks, you should signal to the people in the area before doing so. Moreover, you should stay at least 10 meters away from the area where fireworks are lit.
  • Do not bring unlit fireworks that failed to ignite back for another attempt. Unlit fireworks can explode unexpectedly and cause injuries.
  • Do not release sky lanterns in residential areas. Sky lanterns may fall onto the roofs of houses, causing fires and damage to life and property.

      Surviving accidents and disasters during the Loy Krathong festival depends on everyone's responsibility, especially regarding alcohol consumption. Alcohol may impair one's judgment and pose risks to life and property in various ways. To reduce the risk of accidents and disasters, important practices should be observed during the Loy Krathong festival.
