Chiang Mai readies for Loy Krathong Festival

Floating lanterns banned in three locations in the city

The City will ban the launching of hot air balloons or Khom Loy at the Governor’s Residence, Three Kings Monument and Tha Pae Gate as they are a fire and aviation hazard and have called on people to not launch them but light the small candles called Pang Pratheed.

Chiang Mai is readying for the popular Loy Krathong Festival that draws thousands of visitors to launch Khom Loy or floating sky lanterns in the air and krathongs in the water as well as fireworks. The city has banned the use of Khom Loy or the floating lanterns and alcohol in three key locations; the Governor’s Residence, Tha Pae Gate and Three Kings Monument in a bid to tackle safety concerns.
