The Chiang Mai Flower Festival 2018 takes place during the first weekend of February at the end of the cool season. It features displays of yellow and white white.It features displays of yellow and white white chrysanthemums, and the Damask Rose, a variety found only in Chiang Mai. The focus of the Chiang Mai Flower Festival 2018 will be at the public garden of Suan Buak Haad at the southwest corner of the moat. The road next to the park is closed to traffic. Vendors of plants, flowers, orchids and garden decorations set up their stalls there. It is very colourful. Highlight of the festival is the Flower Parade which takes place on Saturday morning. We will inform you about the exact time. The parade features beautifully decorated floats and other vehicles. Thousands of people participate in this event. There are dancers in magnificent costumes, musical performances and lots of flowers of course. 

We offer a tour that includes a visit of the main events of the festival which are the parade as well as the flower exhibition. We think you should also visit the Bhubing Flower Gardens as well as the Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens. There are several interesting and colorful flower markets in Chiang Mai that are worth visiting. Say it with flowers is the device in February in Chiang Mai!
