Bo Sang Umbrella VillageThai artisanal skills are showcased to delicate effect at Bo Sang, about six miles east of Chiang Mai, where you'll find a wealth of traditional creativity. The specialty here is the production of paper umbrellas and parasols, undertaken in showrooms and workshops. While you can find the same kinds of umbrellas at Chiang Mai’s night market, it's worth a visit to watch the craftspeople do their thing. In late January, the Bo Sang Umbrella Festival features a colorful parasol procession along the village's main street.
