Questions you might have about the Yi Peng Festival

  • Can I purchase one ticket to go to the event at both the Yi Peng Lanna International (Mae Jo) and the Chiang Mai CAD Khomloy Sky Lanterns Festival 2020 No, you can only use this ticket for one time at one venue. Your registed information will expire after the ticket is checked at entry.
  • What's the major difference between the Mass Release at Maejo University and Chiang Mai CAD( at Air Sports Farm)? The main difference is that the Mass Release at Mae Jo is a private event linked with the traditions of the Yi Peng Festival. This is also why it has to go through governmental approval on a yearly basis.
    There will also be a lantern release at the Air Sports Farm. With a capacity of 4000 and 2 lanterns dispatched to each client, the release will also be massive with an estimated number of up to 6000 lanterns. Although it doesn't take the name of Mass Release, this venue can be a solid pick if you are looking for a WOW.
  • How can I get confirmation of my ticket booking?
    For booking Chiang Mai CAD Komloy Sky Lanterns Festival 2020, there will be an E-ticket with your passport information (full name and passport photo, need to be registed before 30 September) and venue information (date,ticket number, location, time and seat number). This ticket is to be used exclusively by yourself.
    For booking Yi Peng Lanna International(Mae Jo), there will be only traditional paper tickets. And the organizer usually will issue the tickets in advance for 5 days before the festival venue, so you will get the paper tickets from your guide on the day to attend the festival venue.

  • Is it possible for children to participate? How much is for one child? There is no strict age limitation.

    At the Chiang Mai CAD , we will use the traditional Dhammachai lanterns for you.
    This kind of lanterns, although large in size, is smartly designed: it has a short heat-proof wire attached to the small candle wick that is no longer than 30cm inside the approximately 90cm-long diameter. The candle wick will likely quench out after floating up for about 10 minutes. And the heat-proof wire prevents fire or short circuit if the lanterns fall on the high-voltage power transmission cables. Using only natural and recyclable papers and bamboo, all the materials are biodegradable and will not cause pollution on the earth. It is approved by Thai Industrial Standards TIS808/2552.
    As for the Loy Krathong, the lantern boats are made of banana leaves and filled with flowers, which are also biodegradable.
    For safety and environmental consideration, please don't make your own lanterns or lantern boats or purchase non-standard ones.
  • Can I use this ticket to attend the Loy Krathong? The Loy Krathong event is free to enter, held by the riverside at night. You may take part in during your stay in Chiang Mai from Oct 31th to Nov 2th,2020.
