DirectRooms.Com – The Floating Boats of the Sea Gypsy in Krabi will be held on 15 May 2011
DirectRooms advises early booking of accommodation for those attending the Floating Boats of the Sea Gypsy Festival in Krabi, Thailand on 15th May, 2011.
The festival, also known locally as the Loi Ruea Chao Le Festival is steeped in tradition and history. The festival takes place twice a year, when a full moon falls on the 6th and 11th lunar months (usually around May and October). Local sea gypsies float their boats out to sea, symbolically sending their troubles and misfortunes away. As crowds gather, an unforgettable spectacle unfolds on Ban Saladan beaches as traditional music and dancing accompanies the ceremony.
Demand for accommodation is high around this time of year, and advance booking of hotels in Krabi is strongly advised. The first of this year’s festivals takes place on the 15th May, 2011.
Krabi is accessible via road, sea and air from both Phuket and Bangkok. Roads were built as late as the eighties and have been in good use ever since. A hire car will get you to Krabi from Phuket in less than four hours.
A flight is even quicker, taking just 30 minutes. Buses also run on a daily service. You can also reach Krabi by boat, changing at Phi Phi. From Bangkok, the journey is longer, almost 13 hours by road, but a mere 80 minutes by air. Guests staying in hotels in Krabi (http://directrooms.com/thailand/hotels/krabi-hotels/price1.htm) will be close to the action and can enjoy a wide range of accommodation, outstanding scenery, and of course, watching the mystical sea gypsies at close hand as they float their boats away from the beaches.
