4 days in Chiang Mai Lanterns Lanna tradition local immersion

The famous Chiang Mai Lantern Festival or Yi Peng Festival happens yearly in November. It is linked with the ancient Lanna Kingdom (13th-18th centuries), an Indianised state in present-day Northern Thailand.

People release lanterns into the sky as part of the celebrations to symbolise letting go of ills and misfortunes in the previous year. The hundreds of floating colourful lanterns is truly a dazzling sight.

Join in the raising of the lanterns with Asian Trails Thailand’s 4-day programme. Guests also get to interact with the local community around the Old City gate, as well as sight-see around this charming city.
