Flower festival


In some ways the best part of the Chiang Mai Flower Festival, the Flower Festival Parade starts on Saturday morning the first weekend of February. The flower parade lines up along Charoen Muang Road, all the way from the Nawarat Bridge to the train station. At 8am the parade starts on its way. It moves up Tha Pae Road to Tha Pae Gate and then turns left and follows the moat round to Suan Buak Haad. The flower parade moves very slowly, and stops frequently, so there is no need to rush to take photographs like this one. /Anders Thorsell
