Nights in Chiang Mai, Thailand were more vivid over the last week thanks to the “International Lantern Festival”. This is going on along the moat with the primary level, with social activities in the evening, at Thapae Checkpoint.

From August 21-29 there is an onslaught of booking Bangkok holiday packages for the primary entry to the old town of Chiang mai became an International Lantern Festival. The place around Thapae Checkpoint became the site of several huge events, presenting the wide range of lamps from societies around Asia. During this period individuals create or buy little Krathong (floats) ornamented with candle lights and blossoms and drift them on waterways, sea or other systems of h2o to let go of bad fortune and bad emotions and welcome in best of fortune and happiness.

It was exciting to walk around the place and check out the wide range of styles that showed at least six different nations. Along with the reveals, there were also several music and functions which add to the interest.  But the lamps were not only in its most well-known collecting place.  Spread throughout the rest of the town, and the moat, were at least thirty lantern styles of the globe's most popular destinations.
