Winter in Chiang Rai’s Doi Chang Where the Wild Himalayan Cherry Tree Blooms

CHIANG RAI – You don’t have to travel far to experience cherry blossom season. Each year during December to January, the highlands of  Chiang Rai Thailand – where the weather is cold and the region is swept by the chill breeze of winter – transform into a fervent pink forest.

Witness as the wild Himalayan cherry trees dot the city in pink, imbuing a sense of romance befitting the season. Known locally as the “Tiger Queen” or Nang Phaya Sua Kroang, here are the best places to catch the blooming pink petals and other interesting sights for your next Instagram tryst.
