Tipparat Suthamsamai, Flower Pavilion executive who invented the ice krathong, said she trialled her creation for three weeks to make sure that it would float on the river and look beautiful when people took pictures.
"We decorated the ice krathong with flowers and treats that do not affect the environment. When the ice melts, these flowers and treats would become food for the fish," she said.
Aside from ice krathong, she added that the Flower Pavilion would offer krathong made of other natural materials, such as banana leaves, bio papers and corn husks as well.
"The price of our krathong starts at Bt100 each. They are available at Iconsiam's River Park in Bangkok today," she added.
