Loy Krathong this year will be celebrated without entertainment and fireworks as Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is toning down the festivities out of respect for the late HM King Bhumibol.

Loy Krathong, the festival held to pay respect to the Goddess of Water, takes place on on Nov. 14 this year. As the key part of the event is to float a flower buoyant or krathong onto the river, public parks will be open for the tradition, but there will be no festivities.
