    It is the festival where people makes little boats and put a small candle inside and float in along the river. Very romantic at night when hundreds of boats are flowing.

    18 ~ 20 Nov 2002 is Loythrathong
    I heard the way they celebrate in north thailand is different from bangkok.

    yes, I will be celebrating Loythrathong there too bad couldn't secure a accomodation near the mae ping river. all fully booked!so somehow I either gotta rent a bike or take a cab there.

    Klipsch,
    >>Bring some warm clothes. It gets chilly at night.
    so how's the daytime temperature?

    I'm looking for to buy a fleece (polartec ones or anything that can keeps me warm, light & dries fast ), any recommendation? timberland ones too expensive!

    or should I buy it there? (i.e changmai)
