Loi Krathong

Hundreds of Lanterns at a mass lantern release. Thanks to Race Photography for the amazing picture.


Big News!


A few days ago we were able to negotiate a small allotment of tickets to the Private Yee Peng Lantern Release.  It will be held in the mountain village areas of Chiang Mai.    With a maximum of 500 people this event is destined to be special.   With more than enough people to get the iconic picture (like you see above), but not too many people where its loses the special feeling of the moment.

Originally, we were only allotted 50 tickets, but there were so many people interested that we oversold almost immediately.    Luckily, all the work paid off.   We have been given rights to help sell the rest of the tickets to the event!!!

That means ticket sales are open now for the Private Yee Peng Lantern Release.


***SOLD OUT***


You will receive a confirmation by email once payment is received.    Names and passport number will be checked as you board the bus.

Some Specifics:

Final logistics are being ironed out, but here are the preliminaries:

  • Transportation is included in the price.
  • Buses are expected to leave from the Night Bazaar area about 3pm and should return to the city about 10 – 10:30pm
  • There is a temple next door with YP ceremony, but it is not mandatory to attend.
  • 1 Lantern included with each ticket.
  • Local village people will be selling local foods on site.  Please help support the local villagers.
  • Please dress and act respectfully.  There will be people of all ages, nationalities and religions present.
  • This is NOT Yee Peng Lanna International.   This is a private event.

Which day in November 2016 is this private event?


    October 13, 2016 at 1:14 am

    Its November 14, 2016. Its only legally allowed on that day.


October 14, 2016 at 6:44 pm

It looks like the festival may be cancelled. Has this been confirmed yet?


    October 15, 2016 at 1:40 am

    All the city events celebrating Yee Peng/Loy Krathong have been cancelled. However, this does not affect the lantern release which is continuing as scheduled. Please watch our latest facebook post for updates


      October 15, 2016 at 5:45 am


      Does this mean that there will still be lantern releases throughout Chiang Mai, despite the current mourning period? Or is this the only location where lantern releases are allowed to continue?


        October 15, 2016 at 9:36 am

        There will not be city events as there usually are. The 2 mass lantern events will continue.


October 15, 2016 at 3:44 am

I have tried to purchase an event ticket but it keeps giving me an error message… Are there still tickets left? Due to the cancellation of the main lantern festival?


    October 18, 2016 at 1:48 am

    Yes, its seems to have issues with certain browsers. You’re welcome to follow the instructions just below the button to make payment directly. You will receive a confirm email shortly afterwards.


October 20, 2016 at 12:32 pm

Is there anymore tickets left?


    October 20, 2016 at 12:34 pm

    Yes, we will mark it as SOLD OUT when they are no longer available.


October 21, 2016 at 1:00 am

Is the ticket still available ? If any, how could I buy it ? Many thanks.


    October 21, 2016 at 9:15 am

    Yes, you can use the “add to cart” button or send a PayPal transfer to [email protected]. Its 1500THB per person

What is the difference between these event, the Yee Peng Lanna International and the Yee Peng run by the local authorities which is free?


    October 21, 2016 at 10:48 pm

    The most important difference is the Yee Peng Lanna International mass lantern release is sold out. The city events are not a mass lantern release like you see in the pictures. Rather, its more just people randomly releasing lanterns which doesn’t get that picture everyone is hoping for.


October 25, 2016 at 2:03 pm

Add to cart doesn’t work with any browser. What shoud I do without paypall?


    October 26, 2016 at 1:39 am

    Either way you will need PayPal. The “cart” will send you to PayPal as well.


October 30, 2016 at 5:43 am

I am trying to pay for a ticket on paypal and it is saying they cannot process my payment at this time. Is there a link you can send me or another way to pay?


    October 30, 2016 at 6:22 am

    Sure. Just send a PayPal transfer to [email protected]


      November 12, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      Is there any way to get a ticket? We have been travelling for 2 months with our asia tour based around Yi peng and now it is cancelled and we are in Chiang Mai. I’m absolutely devastated. Please please if there is any way we can attend your event, contact me!


        November 13, 2016 at 7:47 am

        No, all tickets are sold out. BTW, Yee Peng has not been cancelled. There are festivities all over the city starting today
