Every family makes a small round container, using banana leaves on a section of banana trunk. They put flowers, incense sticks, candles, betel nuts and other condiments for chewing and sometimes food and money.

The spectacle of thousands of boats of light with their twinkling candles on the Mekong River is most moving.
