Chiang Mai is renowned for its lively festivals and celebrations which take place throughout the year.
Nong Buak Haad Public Park
Held in early February, this weekend festival closes off the entire south-western corner of the moat as Thailand’s extraordinary variety of tropical plants are displayed in a tapestry of colour.
Throughout the Chiang Mai City
Songkran is largest water festival in the world and people come from all corners of the globe to join in. Set in the middle of the hot season, participants are armed with buckets, water guns and big barrels freezing cold water, ready to exchange in a friendly water fight.
Throughout the Chiang Mai City and along Ping River
Loi Krathong (called Yi Peng) is an enchanting ‘festival of light’ where the sins of the past year are washed down the river by floating small krathongs (banana leaf bouquets with lighted candles and incense). It is also accompanied by the launching of khom (glowing paper balloons) into the night sky. The sight of hundreds of these dotted about the sky and waterways adds magic to this charming and peaceful celebration.
The first week of December
To be held in December, when the cool weather brings the crowds of tourists to town, this arts and crafts fair has grown to include the large open Think Park across trendy Nimminhaemin Road. During the three day event it becomes crowded with stalls selling all sorts of cute creations in the best tradition of Chiang Mai.
