Sky Lanterns

The girls got the chance this year in Krabi, Thailand to light Chinese Sky Lanterns for Chinese New Year – something Emily especially has always wanted to do.

A sky lantern, also known as Kongming lantern or Chinese lantern, is a small hot air balloon made of paper, with an opening at the bottom where a small fire is suspended.

We were surprised how big the lanterns were.

Lighting them on the beach and letting them go over the ocean gave a spectacular view as you could see them all in the sky for miles.
