“There is a garden in her eyes where roses and white lilies flow.” If you are considering coming to Chiang Mai during the winter months, the Flower Festival is a great excuse for a visit. This year, the 46th Chiang Mai Flower Festival takes place from Friday, February 3rd, 2023 till Sunday, February 5th, 2023.

Where is the Chiang Mai Flower Festival? The main event is centred around Buak Hat Park in the south-west corner of the Old Town area of Chiang Mai. This is where the floats are parked up and displayed once the street parade has finished.

In ancient times, Chiang Mai was called the "rose of the north" of Thailand. Locals believe it is the most beautiful city in the northern part of the country. Its valleys and hills are a natural habitat for many tropical flowers. Most of them bloom in January and February, contributing to the celebration at this time.

The main event of the festival is its street parade. The parade takes place on Saturday the 4th of February 2023 and starts off around 9 am. It is quite a slow procession, with the parade regularly pausing.

Preparation. The ratchaphruek (Cassia fistula), or golden shower tree, is the de facto national flower of Thailand.

Yellow flowers as bright as the sun.

Just like a flower, I have to be where the sun shines.

Beautiful wildflower… be free and reach for the sun, live in all your colors and grow untamed. -Butterflies Rising

Let your dreams run as wild as this field of flowers.

Never walk by a flower without stopping.

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy flowers. And that’s basically the same thing.

Beautiful things don’t have to ask for attention.

I must have flowers. Always, always. – Claude Monet

Keep calm and put flowers in your life.

A kind word is like a flower.

I’ll never see something as beautiful as a field of blooming flowers.

Naturally beautiful.

Life began in a garden.

Escape to somewhere magical. And purple.

Some days it storms, some days it shines. This is how flowers grow.

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. – Leonard Nimoy.

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature. – Gerard De Nerval

If it’s purple, then it’s mine.

Tulip paradise

Tulips everywhere!

Let your dreams blossom.

Flowers are happiness.

Flowers are happiness.

Even the tiniest flowers have the toughest roots.

Flowers need time to bloom.

Let love grow.

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever.

Life is better with flowers.
