Environmental friendly Loy Krathong at Thai zoos.

The Zoological Park Organization of Thailand is inviting locals and visitors to celebrate Loy Krathong in an environmentally friendly way. The Krathongs are compostable and the animals in the zoo will be able to eat the ingredients used in the Krathongs. Many people in Thailand have chosen not to join the Loy Krathong celebration due to the Krathongs. This is because modern krathongs often use plastic while traditionally, all parts are made using natural parts from the banana tree. The plastic then ends up in the water and affects the animals along with the environment.



There will be Loy Krathong celebration at famous Thai zoos giving you the opportunity to join a classic Thai tradition while meeting cute animals. Zoos that are celebrating Loy Krathong this year include Khao Kheow Open Zoo, Chiang Mai Zoo, Songkhla Zoo, Khon Kaen Zoo, Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo, Ubon Ratchathani Zoo, the Elephant Kingdom in Surin Province. Khao Kheow Open Zoo Loy Krathong’s celebration will focus on creating happiness for the animals. The krathongs will hold food that is safe for each type of animal but inside krathongs are made using safe ingredients such as ice and banana leaves.



The Chiang Mai Zoo is celebrating Loy Krathong inside Snow Buddy Winter Land where the temperature inside is -10 celsius. This is the only zoo in Thailand with a winter room. There will be many animals waiting for the krathongs and visitors can join from 25-30 November 2023. Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo will have many activities for Loy Krathong including Folksong & Camping, Jungle Home & Camping, Korat Night Zoo, and more. Khon Kaen Zoo will have krathongs available with animal food inside. Songkhla Zoo will hold Loy Krathong celebrations from 25-27 November 2023.
