Living up to the name ‘Rose of the North,’ Chiang Mai organizes the Chiang Mai Flower Festival to showcase its beautiful flowers and decorative plants which are in full bloom towards the end of the winter season in early February. Suan Buak Hat Park is transformed into an open-air exhibition centre where you can find a magnificent tapestry of floral splendor that blankets the land, agricultural exhibitions, and floral displays, contests, and sales. Orchid lovers should not miss the opportunity to see a variety of beautiful orchids grown by locals. The festival also features flower-decorated floats that parade around the city showing the vibrant colored flowers as well as dancers in traditional costumes.
