Flower Festival in Chiang Mai

The Chiang Mai Flower Festival will be held on the first wekkend  in February at Suan Buak Hart City Park. This natural decoration perfectly fits the scenic settings of Chiang Mai city and creates such a delightful sight � not to mention the laid-back atmosphere with cool and breezy ambience.

Flower Festival in Chiang MaiOne of Chiangmai's great tourist attractions takes place in February every year. This is the annual flower carnival which attracts visitors from overseas along many Thai citizens. Early February is the perfect time for this festival because the climatic conditions during the cool of the winter allow the cultivation of not only exotic tropical flowers, such as orchids, but also temperate blooms like roses and chrysanthemums.

Chiangmai city, in February, is awash with vibrant colors, ranging from the electric orange and lilac of bougainvillea to the velvety blossoms of petunias in all shades of pink, white and purple. The strident red of poinsettias, bought by many at Christmas and New Year, is echoed by beds of scarlet salvias. But all this is eclipsed by the sheer profusion of color that the Flower Carnival and Fair bring to the aptly named "Rose of the North".

On all 3 days of the festival, prize blooms are displayed at the Rama IX park, between the Mae Rim road and Canal Road, to the north of the city. Here can be seen almost 1,000 different wild and cultivated orchid varieties and specimen blossoms of chrysanthemums from farms in the surrounding hills, together with an enormous profusion of other flowers. There are also beauty contests and traditional cultural shows.

For flower lovers this is the best time of the year for a visit to Chiangmai. More than 3,000 species of orchidFlower Festival in Chiang Mai are in bloom and nearly one-third of these are shown somewhere in Chiangmai's annual Flower Show and Festival These include both the wild orchid species and the cultivated orchids from northern Thailand's many orchid farms and nurseries. The prize winning cultured orchids from Thailand are a prominent part of the show at Rama IX Park, and many of the rarer orchids that are very hard to find and very expensive throughout most of the year are available at this show at reasonable prices. Both full grown blooming planted and hanging orchid varieties are plentiful, as are baby orchids that are only a few years old.

The floral procession will set forth in the morning at Naowarat Bridge and then move slowly along the street � making several stops for performances and shows � down to the City Park (Date to be announced). You will also see many beautiful young Thai ladies perching atop each parade carriage.

These gorgeous ladies are candidates of the Flower Festival Beauty Pageant which will be staged in the evening at the Park. Also on exhibit are various types of award-winning flowers and decorative plants.

Chiang Mai Flower Festival is one of the most famous events and is a total must see to all tourists headed to Chiang Mai. The event has drawn millions of tourist to the city aptly dubbed �The Rose of Northern Thailand�. There is nothing to dislike about the Chiang Mai Flower Festival.
