Chinese Lanterns

A wonderful TA member has suggested we may want to set off lanterns on the beach to mark an occasion. I've checked back and Arandora you posted in 2010 that this was possible. Just checking that restrictions haven't been placed since then and that they are still freely available to buy

Thanks

There certainly don't appear to have been as many this year as in previous years but the lanterns are still on sale and still being despatched to the heavens nightly. There have been announcemnts in the local press that there may be curbs put on the lanterns because of their environmental impact but not at the moment.

Appeal to TA to have it reinstated but TA are getting keener on non travel related topics/comments it seems.

Seems odd that postings about Responsible Tourism should be deemed inappropriate. Those lanterns are downright dangerous.

The thread is reading as though TA condones Irresponsible Tourism.

Very poor censorship!

You know full well that it is TA members who report posts as being in their view inappropriate and are removed automatically after a certain number of posts. As stated previously if you told anyone disagrees with the removal of their post contact TA via the Help Centre and ask for the post to be reinstated. That is when TA gets involved.

The OP has had the information she asked for (and more!) It's up to her now.
