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.
