Yesterday we participated in one of the most incredible events we have ever seen. The Yee Peng Floating Lantern Ceremony in Chiang Mai, Thailand is an ancient, traditional festival that pays respect to the Lord Buddha. After Buddhist chanting and meditation thousands of paper lanterns are lit and released into the sky. It’s a wonderfully beautiful and surreal sight.
More photos from Yee Peng to come later in the week.
