Thailand - Chiang Mai - Flower Festival

I borrowed Wendy's bike and rode around the city. It is very different to my last visit in 1984, but I remember this 13th century city wall and moat that protected Chiang Mai from the Monguls.

I was very lucky to co-incide with the Chiang Mai Flower Festival, the one day of the year. 3000 exotic orchids on display.

.... and food

for every taste...

except mine.

Nagas riding amazing 3 headed elephants! Made only of fresh flowers

... and a real Flower Queen.
