The Lantern Festival

Every year around November, it is the time of one of Chiang Mai most exciting festivals, that is "Loy Kratong" or better known to foreigners as "The Lantern Festival". The whole town will be lit up with paper lantern and beautiful decorations. Local floats out the toxic free banana leave item into the river as a tokken of apology to the Mother of the River. If you're lucky, you will see the sky full of beautiful bright orange flying latterns too.
