A Fresh Start with Chiang Mai Cherry Blossom

by Sasathorn

A Cherry Blossom in Chiang Mai, for real? Oh yes, it is.  Cherry Blossom Aka Sakura is no longer reserved only for Japan.  Its spectacular blooming scenery can also be seen in the North of Thailand. The wild cherry blossom trees here grow on verdant high mountains across northern region during December to February, attracting a number of tourists to enjoy the northern delights during the cool season and as a celebration of new year for the Thais.

Thai and Japanese Sakuras are different in blooming period and size – Thai Sakura comes during December to February which is the cool season, while the Japanese Sakura, with bigger flower and more color density, exposes its flowers during April to May to welcome the spring season, a fresh start leaving the cold winter behind.  What both Cherry Blossoms of the two nations shared in common is – the celebration of happiness and new beginning.

Thai Sakura is the Wild Himalayan cherry blossom species (Prunus cerasoides). Its name in Thai is “Naang phá-yaa suea-khrông”, which means “Tiger Queen”.  It originally blooms from Himalayan Mountains and widely spread into mountainous territories of northern Thailand namely Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Loei, Nan and Mae Hong Son provinces.  The most famous and closet day-trip spot to see the pink petals would be “Baan Khun Chang Khian” (Khun Chang Kian Highland Agriculture Research Center), a tiny village way up on Doi Pui mountain in Chiang Mai city.

Chiang Mai’s breathtaking Cherry Blossom trees can be viewed in the gardens of Baan Khun Chang Khian, an ideal place for a romantic promenade.  There are a lot more to see and feel in Bann Khun Chang Khiang, including Coffee Arabica plantation, flower and temperate fruit gardens, the Hmong tribe’s way of life in the small Hmong village and the cool fresh breeze that purifies your senses.

Sabai-arom bottles all that liveliness and sensuous floral scents of Thai Sakura into Chiang Mai Cherry Blossom collection, enlivening you to always look forward to seeing those beautiful pink petals again—and again.
