Highlights

This event is partly sponsored by Skylights Lanterns SG

The myth says that military strategist Zhuge Liang -also known as Kong Ming- wrote a message on a sky lantern and released it to the sky in order to summon help after the enemy had surrounded him. Ever since, sky lanterns have become known as Kongming lanterns.

 The Chinese believe that by writing their wishes and prayers on the lanterns and releasing them, those wishes and prayers will come true.

The regulatory constraints in Singapore 

Sky lanterns may be flown if... 
- permission by the authorities CAAS, RSAF and SCDF is granted
- the lantern remains attached to your body with a string of no more than 200 feet in length
- no more than 20 lanterns are up at the same time at one given location 
- the location is shown in pale yellow in the below map (i.e., not in a dark yellow or pink area, not inside a blue or brown circle)

The more locations across Singapore we can organize, the more lanterns will brighten our night sky on September 17th in celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival.

Gather with friends, family, neighbors (and we are also happy to send some friends your way) and celebrate this special day outside by making a wish, lighting your lantern, and have it join the others on the night sky.

Looking after the
environment:

Numererous reports have shown the negative impact of flying sky lanterns "the traditional way". Among them are littering the environment and causing hazard for animals from eating or getting trapped in lantern remains such as wires. Our chosen method of flying sky lanterns leaves no trace in the environment, as our lanterns remain attached to our bodies via a string of 60m/200ft length. This allows us to retrieve the lantern as it burns out, leaving no trace behind and therefore posing no danger to animals. We also pay special attention to leaving the place in a better shape than we have found it.

How your condo can participate: 

You must have outdoor space for several people and your condo must be in one of the 'pale yellow' locations in above map. Just contact us using the 'any questions' button! We will deal with obtaining the permissions from the authorities for you. First come first serve, so be quick to apply!

We are also celebrating in public places, Toa Payoh (permission granted) and Tanglin (permission under way) among them.

We'll provide everything you need to fly the lanterns, including the strings. Imagine if we have few hundred lanterns flying in Singapore night, it will be such a memorable and spectacular way to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival.

Anyone who wants to join this unforgettable experience is welcome, please RSVP quickly, as interest is very high!

  • I had a amazing trip with a group of friendly and warm tour mates. Carly was such an assuring tour leader. Excellent and safe Vietnamese driver, Jerry. well spoken English Vietnamese guide Tommy. I enjoyed myself very much and look forward for another trip!

  • Excellent short trip with beautiful verdant countryside and charming local tribal people not corrupted by tourism yet . Be prepared for long drive on narrow winding mountain roads.

  • Best trip ever ! Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time !

Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time ! Everyone kept their cool when faced with an unforseen delay . The scenery at Ha Giang is simply superb . There are so many small towns within the mountains with so many minority races living together . Their costumes are so colourful and the ladies' headgears are so lovely to gawk at . If I could , I would love to go again . Highly recommended for gungho people with "throw everything to the wind" attitude . Fantastic local guide and driver (Tom & Jerry) and pats on the back for Carly (Singapore guide) too . Thanks .........rosse and raymond . Read less

  • Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. ...

Late evening slot was a good idea as we got to see the night installations at The PathFinder portion, but food stalls already closed upon exit. There are toilets inside the exhibit in Fort Canning Center itself. Cleaner than the mobile toilets outside. Thank you for helping to get us tickets when it is so difficult to do so. Read less

  • My wife, son and I never regret of signing up this trip. My 8 year old son enjoyed the walk on the rocky beach. Best moment of the walk was that we came closed to the corals, crabs ???? and ???? shrimps. Thank you threeplaygrounds!
