Loy Krathong falls on the night of the full moon in the 12th lunar month of the Thai calendar. This year, it takes place on November 11. The ‘krathong’ is a floating basket, often made with banana leaves and filled with flowers. These are sent down the river or floated on water to give thanks for the rains and water.
Spice Market head chef Warinthorn Sumrithphon marks this graceful occasion with an authentic Thai buffet dinner featuring a range of appetisers and main courses that include “Tom Yam Goong Yod Maprow”- spicy prawn soup, mushrooms, palm heart coconut, “Kaow Soy Gai Krob” - Northern Style egg Noodles, curry, chicken and ‘Gaeng Kua Gluay Mooyang’ - red curry with raw banana and grilled pork in coconut milk. Make the evening even more memorable by making a wish and float your own Krathong at the hotel's specially decorated venue. Thai buffet dinner is priced at Bt1,299-plus.
Spice Market is located on the 1st floor, Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel (BTS Ratchadamri) and dinner will be served from 6 to 10.30pm. Make a reservation at (02) 126 8866
