Yeepeng Festival Chiang Mai

 

In Chiang Mai, Yi Peng is celebrated alongside Loy Krathong (22-23 November 2018)

The khom loi are made of rice paper, stretched over a bamboo frame, with a candle attached. The hot air of the candle is trapped inside and makes the lantern rise from the ground. However, since the lanterns can be dangerous, the khom loi are being subjected to more and more government restrictions.
