Information for Chiang Mai Festival and Events
Chiang Mai is a great place to experience any Thai festival. For example, the moat around the Old City provides the perfect setting to celebrate Songkran (the water festival) in April; indeed, the moat is often empty after a few days of riotous splashing. The other major national festival, Loy Krathong (usually held in November), is best witnessed from the banks of the River Ping, as a procession of flickering, candle-lit floats drifts downstream.
