The Lantern Festival of Thailand, also known as the Yi Peng Lantern Festival, is one of the most popular events in Southeast Asia. The festival is celebrated in November when the full moon of the twelfth month of the Thai lunar year appears in full glory. It symbolises the release of negative vibrations and misfortunes of the preceding year and wishes for a more prosperous time ahead. The festival also marks the end of monsoons and the arrival of the winter season.

What happens at The Lantern Festival of Thailand?

On this festival day, tourists and locals gather in large numbers to witness a parade of luminous paper lanterns aka Khom Loi floating skyward in an ethereal procession. Yi Peng Lantern Festival is celebrated in a grand fashion with dedicated viewing platforms, food stalls, souvenir shops, and even cultural exhibitions that demonstrate the history of Lanna tribes and the origin of the festival. Visitors mostly dress up in formal attire, preferably white to complement the solemnity of the festival.
