Tribe Children - Everybody gets involved in the Chiang Mai Flower Festival. These children were riding a home made bike that had been carved out of logs! It looked fantastic...not sure id like to ride it myself though. #children #girls #tribal #tribe #hilltribe #parade #carnival #fun #party #costume #traditional #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #tropical #southeastasia #civilizations #cultures

Tribal Look :- This Woman was in the Chiang Mai Flower Festival Parade. There were many Hill Tribes taking part in the procession as they made their way through the city. Each and every tribe have their own individual look, dress and style. #tribal #tribe #tradition #parade #festival #women #costume #outfit #fancy #headress #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #tropical #southeastasia #civilizations #cultures

Sunset Road - On the way back to the city of Chiang Mai I happened to look out the back window of the bus and saw this view with the sunlight shining on the road. Lucky for me I always have the camera nearby. #sunset #road #sun #sunlight #shining #bright #golden #light #sundown #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #tropical #southeastasia #sunrises #sunsets

Surrounded by Flowers - Another beautiful Thai woman on yet another beautiful festival float. They spend several weeks getting these floats together and at the end of the parade the larger plants used are sold along with many other flowers at a huge festival flower market. #attractive #woman #pretty #beautiful #stylish #traditional #dress #costume #flowers #float #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #tropical #southeastasia #female

Bicycle Girls :- Taken during the annual Chiang Mai Flower Festival held in February. I ran out and clicked as they went past. It was only after I had a look at the shot that I realised the angles, shadows and colours all seemed to complement each other and that the Thai woman in blue was looking directly into the camera. Perfection! #bike #bicycle #women #girls #transport #ancient #flower #festival #traditional #chiangmai #thailand #thai #orient #oriental #tropical #southeastasia #bicycles

Goodnight Sunlight - Wonderfully gradiated color here as the deep orange sunlight fades into the darkening blue of the evening. Yet another incredible sky photographed from the balcony of my Chiang Mai apartment. #sunset #evening #sun #sunlight #shining #bright #golden #light #sundown #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #tropical #southeastasia #sunrises #sunsets

Parked - These bicycle taxis are slowly dying out...you only see elderly people using them nowadays. Its a shame because they are as much part of Thai culture as rice and kick boxing is! #samlor bike #bicycle #transport #ancient #traditional #chiangmai #thailand #thai #orient #oriental #tropical #southeastasia #bicycles

Purple & Yellow Orchid - Once you leave the confines of the cities in Thailand and start to get out into the villages and countryside you notice that nearly everyone grows orchids. There are so many different varieties to discover. The province of Chiang Mai is famous for its flower growing. #orchid #plant #nature #flora #rare #tropical #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #orchids

Temple Wall - A mountain view framed by the silhouetted temple wall and surrounding trees. Very peaceful and tranquil. #mountain #temple #wall #trees #silhouette #silhoutted #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #orient #tropical #southeastasia #churches #temples #tombs

Red Fruit :-To be honest at the time I had no idea what the name of this fruit was but I loved the brightness of it and it looked fascinating. I have since found out it's known as "Dragon Fruit". #chiangmai #thailand #thai #oriental #southeastasia #fruit #food #tropical #colourful #colorful #edible #protein #fresh #fruits #dragonfruit
