No … this was not taken in Thailand. This was taken at Cherating Beach in Pahang, Malaysia.
Taken one year ago, the missus, kids and I went for a trip – Treasure Venture – driving up from Singapore all the way to Cherating Beach in Pahang. Along the way we had to look for “treasures” by following clues given in the navigation code by the organisers. The night we arrived, there was dinner by the beach and the last activity before going back to our rooms was to release these floating torches. I can’t recall what it’s called but there’s this festival in Thailand where they do this sort of thing annually.
Do let me know what it’s called.
