CHIANG MAI -- The public are invited to visit the Royal Park Rajaphruek in Chiang Mai to admire the beauty of hundred thousands of yellow flowers, grown to pay tribute to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

Yellow daffodils are grown in the indoor garden with temperature control and about 100,000 French Marigolds have been planted since August as well as other flowers - Golden Trumpet, Zinnia, Cosmos, Chrysanthemum and Gerbera.

Hor Kham Luang Royal Pavilion and outdoor areas will be blanketed with yellow flowers from Oct 20 onwards.

The Royal Park Rajaphruek covers an area of 240,000 square metres in Mae Hia sub-district. The park hosts an annual flower festival from December until February.
