Chiang Mai Heritage Sky Lanterns Festival 2023



Loykrathong is celebrated throughout Thailand, but in Chiang Mai, home of Lanna culture, people also celebrate Yee Peng by releasing lanterns, or Khomloy, into the sky. Yee Peng in Chiang Mai is an unforgettable sight and the best way to enjoy this cultural event is to attend a mass lantern release.
