    Here in Thailand we do not have lockdown, so a few days ago I took a ride up Suthep mountain to the Hmong village of Baan Khun Chang Khian, to catch the end of the cherry blossom blooms.

    Despite Covid-19, there was no shortage of local and national visitors.

    There are a few locations within Chiang Mai province (and beyond) where you can view the blossoms, but this village is a particularly pretty place to enjoy them, due to the working traditional Hmong people and the scenic views.

    A short video and still have much to improve on, but hopefully still gives a bit of an impression of the atmosphere this year.

    Wish everyone safe :)

    Thank you very much Geschift! I am still working on getting better footage and editing in better ways, but hoping to share some of the beauty in places or events/festivals I visit. I am trying to create something a little different /unusual to hopefully make it interesting for the viewer ^.^

    Appreciate the comment from you and Old Beer. Ty.

    Thank you manshoon :D Actually, this post is from late January, which is still Thailand winter-time ..haha. Hot Season is the season we are in now but it is coming to an end early this year, and now already entering into Rainy/Monsoon Season.

    Have a great time riding and good luck with keeping the bugs at bay! ^^
