Mighty Tulip Farm in Chiang Rai Park Thailand

There is a Tulip Farm in Thailand Suan Tung Lae Khom Chiang Rai Park right in the middle of the city. Many people and even the locals are not aware of this garden which is an old prison. This stunning park grows all kinds of stunning colourful winter plants.

ANNUAL COOL WEATHER

Chiang Rai is famous for cool weather with the perfect climate for the pride of the Netherlands to bloom. The elevated terrain mountains are surrounded by hills, valleys, serene rivers, lakes, and green fields.

Chiang Rai city offers little diversity when it comes to nightlife. Without night entertainment and shopping malls, the charms of Chiang Rai lie in her floral festivals.

Smaller and quieter, the floral festival on the 4.5 acre grounds  a large variety of flowers. I saw petunias, lilies and the ageratum known as the Blue Hawaii. It is the tulips that steal the show. These blooms are colourful and showy in a riot colours. Orange, yellow, pink, red and magenta. This tulip farm is heady sight to behold.

The annual cool temperatures in Chiang Rai are the best time to visit Thailand.

The tulips are too excitable, it is winter here. Look how white everything is, how quiet, how snowed-in. ~ Sylvia Plath

BEAUTIFUL OLD BUILDINGS

The old prison building are refurbished and open sided pavilions are built around the park. The eyes literally feast on the colourful display. Rows upon rows of tulips grown from bulbs, sweetly scenting the air.

The flower has a variety of shapes in most colours. The pure blue varieties is not found here. Take a little time to rest after meandering through the long trail. There are beautiful old buildings inside the compound.
