Winter blooms

Winter blooms

A cool breeze in the morning (you may not feel that yet in Bangkok), betokening the beginnings of winter. And as the temperature drops, floral parks across the country spring up and are in full bloom. It's high time for us to reconnect with nature after spending a good chunk of this year being cooped up. Be ready to satiate your Instagram feed with nature pictures while supporting the locals at farmer's markets as Guru has listed seasonal botanic gardens and flowery routes that you could appreciate while they last.
