Sukhothai Loy Krathong Light and Sound Show

Peace and happiness after a difficult beginning

The light show in Sukhothai¸performed several times, accompanies a dramatic representation of the history of the area, culminating, after much warfare and foreign cruelty, in the peace and happiness of the reign of King Ramkamhaeng. As I do not speak Thai and therefore have only the vaguest of ideas of what was happening at any given moment, the pictures follow without comment, except that the last one is presumably of Ramkamhaeng’s queen releasing the original krathong.
