Over the weekend, I was visiting Chiang Mai for the Magic of Thai Fabric Festival. This took place in the Royal Park Rajapreuk. Thai silk and fabrics are among the best of its kind in the world and this festival celebrated the diversity of the designs as well as the quality on sale today. During the trip, we also briefly visited a village in Lamphun. The following photos were all tweeted live during my trip.
