Yi Peng Sky Lantern Festival - A Bucket List Event
The Yi Peng Sky Lantern Festival takes place at Maejo University in Chiang Mai Thailand. Once every year thousands of people from around the world come together to release over 10,000 Floating Sky Lanterns in unison. Signifying bad luck floating away.
This map shows the exact location where the lanterns are released.
We’ve been informed by local Chiang Mai sources that the real (and free) local Buddhist ‘Yee Peng / Yi Peng’ lantern release at Mae Jo University Chiang Mai will be on October 25, 2014 The paid and ticketed International event is on November 08, 2014. Priced from 3000 THB to 4500THB per person.

What we experienced at the real Lanna Yi Peng FestivalSach releasing her first sky lantern
The Yi Peng Festival in Chiang Mai was one of the most unforgettable sights we have ever seen. Over 10,000 sky lanterns (locally known as khom loi) are released in unison and the sky becomes aflame in a brilliant orange glow of fire.
