APTOPIX Thailand Festival
In this photo taken Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013, thousands of paper-made balloons, powered by burning oil, rise into the evening sky in Chiang Mai province, some 580 kilometers (360 miles) north of Bangkok during the Loy Krathong Festival. During the festival at night time, Thais float lanterns to the sky and float candles on the lotus-shaped basket into the rivers, in order to drift away their bad luck. (AP Photo/Vincent Thian)
