Loi Krathong

This past weekend we attended the Loi Krathong and Yi Peng festival held at Maejo University on the outskirts of Chiang Mai. It’s an annual multi day festival during the full moon of the 12th Thai month, usually falling in late November. The lantern liftoff was absolutely breathtaking. It was mesmerizing to watch thousands of lanterns float up into the sky and swirl together and away into the breeze, like watching a galaxy form in fast forward. The pictures barely do it justice.
