Fireboat Festival in Laos

October 5, 2012 by Khiri Travel |

The Fireboat Festival occurs at the end of Buddhist Lent, in the Lao calendar (Oct 31 this year). During this time, each village creates a large boat out of wood and banana leaves covered in candles, which will be paraded through the main street and judged – before being released into the Mekong, creating a river of candlelight.

Each temple is also decorated beautifully with thousands of candles and paper lanterns. It’s really a very special time for visitors – especially those with an eye for photography!
