The Flower Market Chiang Mai

Of all the markets in Chiang Mai, the local flower market was my favourite one to visit.  Under the awnings (shown in the picture above) the stalls along the street were packed with fresh flowers of all kinds.  Some were wrapped in newspaper bundles, some tied up in plastic and others just stacked in groups by gorgeous colours and type.

There were delicate handmade wreaths and flower hangings made out of the precious buds.  There were rows of abundant ready made flower arrangements.

We also learned how to transport bundles of flowers without a car or van.  Some very carefully stacking and securing on your motorbike and soon you are on your way:)
