Thais enoy taking part in the annual Loy Krathong festival tonight in Bangkok. The event fell on the same night as Halloween.

The annual celebration honouring the Buddhist goddess of water sees millions of people float 'Krathong' baskets to bring good luck for the year ahead.

Loy Krathong, also spelt Loi Krathong, is said to have started in the 12th century in the ancient Thai kingdom. Meaning ''to float a basket," it follows the Buddhist belief of paying respect to water spirits.

Since the last century, it has been celebrated annually throughout the Kingdom of Thailand and neighbouring countries. The festival takes place full moon in the evening with a full moon in the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar.

The exact date changes according to the moon and calendar but this year is on the same day as Halloween. Loy Krathong is celebrated in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Burma (Myanmar) and other Buddhist regions.
