Mid January sees the Sakura Cherry Blossom season in Khun Chang Kian, Chiang Mai. As with all blossom seasons, getting the right day can be hit and miss, but there should be a week or so left. The road is improved over last year, but care is still needed; its pretty much single track for the last 12km and there are potholes that could throw you.

Just over the hills to the west of Chiang Mai, some 150km, is the Phayao – pretty town in a lakeside location. Well worth an overnight visit.
