Photographer's Note

Upon arrival at the Mae Fah Luang - Chiang Rai International Airport, we were greeted by a local beauty who presented us with krathong (floating flower arrangement with candle).

It was Loy Krathong festival time. A non-public holiday in Thailand but a widely celebrated festival when believers would after temple prayers, set sail krathongs on any waterways. Prayers or wishes are made for better future, safety and health.

What a lovely gesture made by Chiang Rai. The pretty lady made my day!
