FAQs for Attending Yi Peng Lantern Festival 2024

1. Is it possible for children to participate? How much is it for one child?

There is no strict age limitation. However, the chaotic celebration, entry, traffic, and massive amount of people, as well as the fire used to launch lanterns, can be intimidating or even dangerous for children under 12 years old. This of course depends on each child's maturity.
Children under 8 years old enter free, but no separate seats and sky lanterns are provided. Children of 8 and above are charged the same as adults and receive the same provision. You can buy a ticket for your child under 8 if you would like her or him to enjoy the same provision.

2. 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 during your stay in Chiang Mai.

3. Can I pick a seat within the seating zone that my ticket belongs to?

Yes, we can help you book a seat according to your preferences. However, an early booking is advisable if you would like to have a seat as close to the stage as possible.

4. What is the dress code for the event?

No short pants, sleeve-less tops, or mini skirts are allowed. We recommend you get dressed up in Lanna style with a longyi as bottoms and a clothing on the shoulder.

5. Can I drink beer or wine at the event?

No, you may not. Alcohol drinking or selling is not allowed at the celebration.

6. Can I take photos or make videos of the Buddhism rituals?

Our Premium tickets allow you to get closest to the monks, photos and videos are possible. However, you cannot enter the seating zone of the monks.

7. Will there be somebody who can help me launch the lanterns?

A traditional Lanna lantern is big in size and it usually takes 2 people to launch. You will find some volunteers at the venue. They will be happy to help you out.

8. Will the floating lanterns cause environmental problems such as earth and water pollution or forest fire?

As a tour operator with a high awareness for social responsibility, we only provide our clients with lanterns that fit the local governmental standards.

At the Chiang Mai CAD, we will use the traditional Dhammachai lanterns for you.

This kind of lantern, 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 90 cm-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 paper 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.
