Chiang Mai Flower Festival
Chiang Mai, Thailand, hosted its annual Flower Festival over the weekend. The city’s public gardens are especially beautiful this time of year, and visitors flock to the gardens to see flowers found only in Chiang Mai, like the Damask Rose, a rose hybrid.
The Flower Festival Parade on Saturday is the highlight every year. Traditional Thai dancers and Miss Chiang Mai Flower Festival competitors ride atop elaborately decorated floral floats and hand out roses to spectators.
