Chiang Mai Flower Festival, Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai is known affectionately as the ‘Rose of the North’ and every year the local residents celebrate the end of the cool season with a special three day festival.
The colourful gathering features myriad displays of flowers, trees and native orchids, all lovingly hand-made and judged by a team of experts. Local dancers and musicians attend the festival to entertain revellers and there is even a ‘Miss Chiang Mai Flower Festival’ competition to add a certain glamour to proceedings. A quirky, fun and authentic experience showcasing the warm hospitality of rural Thai communities.
