Every year in November, northern Thais celebrate Yi Peng, a Buddhist festival focused on merit-making and celebrated by the release of floating khom loy lanterns into the sky to carry wishes and dreams up towards the heavens. The best place to experience this beautiful celebration is Chiang Mai, where thousands of lanterns are released simultaneously, resulting in an unforgettable spectacle as they light up the entire night sky. Join the large celebrations in the city, or enjoy a small, intimate celebration at the Hotel, where guests are able to release their own khom loy on the edge of the lake.
