2017 Lantern Festival

I am consideringn a trip which will take from to Thailand and Shanghai on our way back to Canada. I started researching and it seems the Lantern festival will be held November 3-5. Is ther anyone that can confirm this and as well, are there any tour groups that will take you to the night time festivities and return you back to your hotel? We are with a group in the day but will have free time at night.

Thankyou very much.

Depending on where you are staying in Chiang Mai, you maybe able to walk or perhaps catch a tuk tuk. Events take place in various parts of town.

You will be close enough to access events either with a long walk or a tuk tuk ride.

thanks for your info.. I actually then realized that I was also concerned about the Lantern Festival which is the Yee Peng. I hear its done outside the city centre and that getting to this may be problematic. any suggestions on this.
