One of Thailand’s most significant festivals, Loy Krathong, envelops revellers in beauty and wonder as intricately made banana leaf floats, called krathong, decorated with flowers, candles and incense float down the country’s waterways. In the northern hub and historic Lanna capital of Chiang Mai, the local Yee Peng Festival is also celebrated with the additions of tealight candles illuminating entrances and glowing paper lanterns, or khom loy, released into the dark nighttime sky. The glowing paper lanterns are thought to have been introduced to Chiang Mai in 1947 and have since been incorporated into local culture while other customs include colourful parades and traditional dance performances.
Experience it all conveniently in one special evening at Horizon Village and Resort including cultural performances, a vibrant dinner set amongst a traditional northern Thai market setting known as kad mua, lantern releases, a hot air balloon spectacle and more.
