I attended the Yee Peng Lantern Festival in Chiang Mai this year.

Yee Ping or Yi Ping is a festival held just before the Loy Krathong festival in Thailand. The act of releasing the lanterns on this day signifies letting go of all misfortunes and ills of the past year. People also like a to make a wish before releasing the lanterns in the sky.

Here are some moments I’ve captured to remember this amazing festival which happened to be on my birthday eve this year :)
