Thousands of beautiful tulips bloom in northern Thailand

Thousands of tulips that are in bloom are attracting visitors to a park in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand.

More than 20,000 of the flowers at the Royal Park Rajapruek have bloomed during the cooler weather.

Footage shows locals enjoying the brightly-coloured flowers, posing for selfies and taking photographs of the sights on January 2. Orchards and other types of flowers were also inside the covered greenhouse.

Phichaya Kan Nawkaewmoon, public relations manager of the park, said: ”The tulips are native to Holland, but now people don’t have to travel abroad to see them. We have cultivated them right here for people to enjoy.”
