I’ve written before about how flowers are integral to everyday Thai life, particularly with the daily offerings made at Buddhist temples and to spirit houses. Even in the most urban of environments like Bangkok, garlands of flowers can be found dangling from mirrors in taxi cabs and tuk-tuks as well as being used as part of a merit-making display at shrines and temples throughout the city. But the most famous regions for producing flowers in Thailand lie to the north of Bangkok, with mountainous provinces like Mae Hong Son, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai renowned for their floral beauty especially during the cool season months from November to February.
