The military in Chiang Mai has ordered the cancellation of a major sky lantern event planned for the Loy Krathong festival in November, following heavy criticism from conservation groups.

 

The event, jointly organized by the Chiang Mai Tourism Industry Council and the Office Huay Toeng Thao reservoir tourism promotion project, was to be held at Huay Toeng Thao in Mae Rim district of Chiang Mai.

 

About 20,000 Chinese tourists are expected to join the event and the organizers had hoped to set Guinness world record for the largest number of sky lanterns to be floated in the air at a single event.
