20 Incredibly Beautiful Photos of the Yi Peng Lantern Festival

Later this month, all across Thailand but particularly in Chiang Mai, thousands upon thousands of floating paper sky lanterns will be set free by massive crowds of locals and tourists alike.

The northern Thai festival is known as Yi Peng—literally “two full moon day,” corresponding with the full moon day in the second month according to the Lanna lunar calendar—and it is part of the wider Loi Krathong festival. There is a lot of tradition and information there, but the short version is this: you’ll want to be in Thailand the week of November 22nd, ready to experience one of the most beautiful festivals you’ll ever set your eyes on.
