Ratchapeuk Gardens

I wrote this blog entry in early September, saved it as a draft, and then forgot about it. I though it worth publishing even though it's old news now...

This was another day off outing. Ratchapeuk is a spectacular garden/flower/architectural show that opens in Chiang Mai over the cool season. During August it was open free to locals because it's not really ready for visitors yet. It made a lovely day out for us.

There are lots of examples of Thai architecture from different parts of Thailand and different eras. This is Rachel on the second story of a Lanna-style house (northern Thailand including Chiang Mai.) And Mum, can you tell what that is I'm carrying? An essential part of every good picnic!

Victor is outside some Central Thai houses.

There were some plants looking beautiful.

And this is Victor with our car in disguise. (Can you spot it?)
