Revisiting Royal Flora


I just got back from a trip to Chiangmai, north of Thailand. I have many interesting things that have the touch of "Thainess" special in the north to share to you in a series of posts. For now, I'd like to bring you back to an exhibition that made a big bang - the Royal Flora 2006 in honor of the reigning king. Although its features are no longer the same as the ones you have (or might have) seen  in 2006 having many international floras such as rare tulips fresh from Europe, the place has been maintained for Thais and tourists. It's now offered for free though but you may want to ride on the roaming train  to take you around for only 20 baht. Here are some beautiful sights you may be interested in in case you have the chance to visit the north:

Really? It made a big bang! I never knew that. Thanks for the info heheh...
But seriously, I really wished I saw that one. Sayang I blew my chance. Anyway, thanks for sharing the photos. They sure are lovely to behold. I wish I could send you some tulip and hyacinth bulbs. They grow in our back garden.

(psst..ganda ng pagkakatagpi ng mga photos, keep up the good work!)
