Lanterns fill sky at China celebration

Thousands of lanterns filled the skies above Jinghong, China on April 13 as the Dai ethnic group celebrated their New Year.

Jinghong is a city in the Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, in the far south of China's Yunnan province.

The Dai people form one of the 56 ethnic groups officially recognised by the People's Republic of China, and are closely related to the Lao and Thai people who form a majority in Laos and Thailand.
