Loy Kratong Sky Lanterns***Warning***

As reported in the Phuket Wan today lighting of the lanterns is illegal and dangerous within a 7km radius of the air port.

I wish that they were banned all over. They are such fire hazards and so ecologically unfriendly. We are constantly cleaning up the trash in the sea. :-(

I read they are ceasing operations early that night at Chiang Mai Airport.
