I want to go to there: Chiang Mai Yi Peng Festival, Thailand

Sorry for the radio silence yesterday. A few posts lined up for you today. Got another crazy week ahead of me! Hope everyone had a fun Hallowe'en. Mine was spent watching scary movies and consuming mass amounts of junk food.

How incredible does this festival in Thailand look? Read about it over on Designverb. The Chiang Mai Yi Peng Festival is a Buddhist lantern festival that happens at the end of October/beginning of November. Thousands of sky lanterns (called Khom Fai) are released and are said to carry away the troubles of the person who launched them.
