Once again we are in the right place at that the right time … Chiang Mai, Thailand, on Monday November 14, 2016! How does this keep happening to us? Maybe it’s because we can then share our experiences – such as the Festivals of Thailand – with those who have never visited Southeast Asia as well as those who have, but missed these special events.
On the night of the full moon, the Festivals of Loi Krathong and Yi Peng took place in Chiang Mai as well as other parts of Southeast Asia. And what an amazing display it was. It was also the night of the Supermoon, when the moon was the brightest, largest and closest to earth since January, 26 1948!
We started the afternoon/evening by meeting a friend at a restaurant called The Dukes located on the banks of the Ping River. There are four locations in Chiang Mai and all are known for superb western style food – and large portions, so come hungry!
