Beautiful Chiang Mai Flower Festival, Famous! Part 1

This year the festival was from 6.2. – 8.2.2015. I thought it is festival with some trucks and some people, but wrong, it is a very big festival with about 30 big beautiful decorated trucks and many different groups. My englisch is not so good, so let the pictures speak:

The preparations on 5.2. an 6.2., real flowers no plastic.

The Miss… contest was with a group of tourist girls and a group of thai girls. The tourist girls must do something like sing a song or dance or whatever you can do, just for fun. I think the winner got 5000 baht.

Thailand is certainly the land of festivals, and this one looks like a beauty.
Some lovely flowers amongst the flowers, if you know what I mean.

The Dji Quadrocopter looks like a trick piece of equipment.

Beautiful photos Helbob. What camera are you using?

I have my old sony A33 exchanged for a new Sony A77 II, a heavy but very good camera.
Price was 960 euro for the body.
First i bought a A38 but this one had no remote control so I have sold it

This year I been in Chinda House, it is in small road 7-10min to walk from Tapae Gate. The room with TV, Hot Water and freezer is 400 Baht. They have cheaper rooms too.

This first days I drive only with a Honda Wave around because this bike is very easy in the city. When the Flower Festival was finished I rent a CRF 250 from POP for 650Baht/day and pay him 2 weeks. POP has now about 600 motorbikes and he is the biggest in asia but always very friendly when I see him.

My first enduro-week I drove alone for look something new and take pictures. The second week I drove with 4 friends. For the motorbike-trip I will make a new thread. In the next thread “The North-West End Tours of Thailand” we met the “Road to Mandaly” Rallay in Mae Hong Son.

…Finish….
