This is a national festival with its epicenter in Chiang Mai. Each year on the first full moon in November local Thais, expats and tourists will light a small biodegradable floating lantern in the Klongs (Canals) and the rivers to ask for forgiveness for polluting the waterways in the past year.

 

Additionally, lanterns of various size including some with trailing fireworks are sent floating in the sky of which when combined with thousands of other lanterns, makes for a true bucket list experience.
