CHIANG RAI – Thai and foreign Tourists continue to flock to see the cherry blossoms that are blooming in Chiang Rai at this time of year.
Visitors traveled to Wiangkan district to see these pink flowers, which are also known as Thai Sakura. The cooler weather in Chiang Rai Province at this time of year also attracts a large number of tourists from all over the country, looking for a genuine winter experience.
The Watershed Management Unit of Ngao will continue to allow people to take photos and enjoy the sight of these beautiful cherry blossoms until early next month.
They are advised to travel to the Watershed Management Headquarters either via Phu Chi Fa or Wiangkan district, which is only 2 kilometers away.
The variety of sakura growing in Thailand is the Wild Himalayan cherry (Prunus cerasoides). Its name in Thai is นางพญาเสือโคร่ง naang phá-yaa sǔea-khrông, which means “Tiger Queen.”
There are several good places to go see the Tiger Queen flowers blooming, including Doi Chaang, Doi Wawee, and Doi Mae Salong mountains, which are all located in Chiang Rai province.
