I would hope to come again to Chiang Mai next year right on Loy Krathong & Yee Ping Festival celebration and bringing the future bride and groom to do an adventurous pre wedding photo session. The photos would have a background of hundreds maybe even thousands of lanterns flying in the sky which that would make a very magical photo session. November would be the perfect month for it.
I fell in love with Chiang Mai, it was a very beautiful small town and would be even more beautiful at the time of Loy Krathong celebration being held. Lanterns were hung decorating the buildings especially the temples, (locals call temples as Wat) all over the town. You would see candles lit up along the streets of the old town as the night fell. It was very romantic atmosphere. Actually this ceremony was being held in the entire Thailand, however, the one in Chiang Mai is more special because only here where they could fly out the lanterns.
I strongly recommend to couples who love adventures to come and have an engagement photos or even for marriage proposal to your loved ones in Chiang Mai when Lay Krathong is being held. It will be a very perfect time. There are no other words to express how I felt when I witnessed that beautiful glorious moment. It's a once-in-a-lifetime-must-see event that you have to give it a go.
