Chiang Mai Yi Peng Festival 2022: Date and Tickets

By CindyUpdated Jun. 22, 2022

Yi Peng (sometimes written as Yee Peng), a famous Thailand festival, usually coincides with Loy Krathong Festival. It is a festival unique to northern Thailand and is usually celebrated in November.

During the festival, people launch paper lanterns into the air for good fortune. Hence, it is also known as the Floating Lantern Festival or the Festival of Light.

When Is Yi Peng Lantern Festival 2022?

In 2022, Chiang Mai's Yi Peng Lantern Festival will take place from November 8th to 9th, 2022.  

The date of the Yi Peng Festival changes every year. Yi Peng festival was created by the Lanna people of Northern Thailand and its date is based on the Lanna Lunar Calendar. Its name indicates when the festival is celebrated.

Yi means 'two' and Peng means 'full moon day'. Yi peng means the full moon night in the second month according to the Lanna lunar calendar (the twelfth month of the Thai lunar calendar).

Yi Peng is celebrated in tandem with Loy Krathong, normally starting one or two days before Loy Krathong.  Get to know the interesting history and stories about Yee Peng Festival
