 Yi Peng Lantern Festival
lights up the city

Yi Peng Lanterns surround the city and can be found lit up in a beautiful display around the city, every evening on the moat, and at the city gates. Lanterns are considered noble objects to show prosperity according to the legend in Phra Dharma Tesana ‘Anisong Pang Pathit (Prateep)’scripture. Anyone who worships the Lord Buddha with a lantern during the Yi Peng festival will receive merit and live peaceful and happy lives. The grand parade of the Lanterns will be held on November 20, starting from Tha Phae Gate and travelling to Chang Klan Road. The Loy Krathong parade will take place on the night of November 22.
