This is Wat Chedi Luang, an ancient temple in Chiang Mai. Construction began in the 14th century and was completed in the mid-15th, it was damaged by an earthquake in 1545 CE and repaired in the 1990s. There’s certainly a long history behind this one!
“The sky transformed itself into a splendid and surreal sea of lanterns carrying all kinds of wishes,” writes Your Shot member Sherry Zhao of the scene at the Yi Peng Lantern Festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Here, a couple makes a wish before releasing a lantern into the night sky. “This enchanted moment is truly embedded in my memory,” Zhao writes. “I’m glad I was fast enough to lie down on the ground and capture the serene moment between this young couple, who drew my attention with their sincere expressions before sending out the lantern, sending up hope.”
Here are some WIPs I’m doing for our Southeast Asia trip two months ago. Time flies!
Tricie and I are doing a personal book of our trip soon (AB3C Project!) and I’m currently working on a few articles for Pepper under Hungry Wanderer - so you’ll definitely get to see our gastronomic whereabouts and adventures during our 30 day trip.
Hopefully I get to sort out all photos soon and do my “travel advice tips” post soon - as promised! :)
