Here we are for the 165th week of Travel Photo Thursday. I arrived back in Korea on Tuesday morning at 6:30am. A 3 hour bus trip got me into Daejeon around 10:30am. Getting used to 7 degree temps (that’s celsius) is a challenge! Thailand has a large population of indigenous people living in the mountainous north. Although there is more than one ethnic group, as a whole, they are referred to as the “hill tribes”. They are all well known for their beautiful textiles, and from these textiles the tribes produce beautiful traditional costumes. There is always a large contingent of hill tribe people involved in the Chiang Mai Flower Festival. Today I am sharing some of my favorite shots, showcasing their beautiful traditional costume

Beautiful Hill Tribe dancers and costumes….
Isn’t she stunning in her traditional costume?
Love the colors and the bead work…
The men look so handsome in their outfits! I can only imagine the work that went into attaching all those beads.
The traditional hats are beyond gorgeous!
Non-stop energy as they dance the parade route!
Chiang Mai’s Flower Festival is one of the best opportunities to see these beautiful Hill Tribe costumes. Remember, that parade is held in February, either the first or the second weekend.
