Mae Jo's Yi Peng or Chiang Mae's Loy Krathong?

Jump to last reply

This is my first time posting, but I've learned so much from reading the posts. I am currently planning a trip to Japan and Thailand for November/December. I have heard that Loy Krathong is wonderful experience in Chiang Mae. But I have also heard that the lantern release in Mae Jo is magical.

I don't believe the actual date of the lantern release will be released for quite awhile, and I don't want to postpone booking my flights that long. I'm also not planning on spending more than 4-5 days in Chiang Mae, so am unlikely to be able to attend both. Does anyone feel that one is a much better experience than the other? If you prefer the lantern release, does anyone have any guesses on when that will be this year (Nov. 17th or Nov. 24th or ....)

Thank you for your help!
