Time to Escape and Enjoy Romantic Thainess as the Sunflower Season Starts in Central Thailand

The sunflower season has started in Central Thailand. The best places to see the sunflower fields are in Lop Buri and Sara Buri provinces, just a short drive northeast of Bangkok. Normally starts around November and goes on until January or February, depending on the weather. Each farm in the two provinces takes turns in planting the sunflowers so that there is at least one area of blooming flowers during this period. Each sunflower field lasts about 10 days, and is normally filled with locals and tourists alike wanting to take pictures amid the vast landscape of beautiful yellow flowers as they turn their bright faces to follow the sun. Most farms offer free entry, some might provide extra services; such as, pony riding and exploring the field on a mini tractor. There are also booths selling sunflower oil and seeds as well as fruit, food and beverages.

Here are some of the best places to visit the sunflower fields in Lop Buri and Sara Buri:

Lop Buri offers the first places to see the sunflowers in bloom in Amphoe Muang, Amphoe Phatthana Nikhom, Amphoe Ban Mi, Amphoe Khok Samrong, and Amphoe Nong Muang.

For more information, contact TAT Lop Buri Office at 036-770-096-7, or TAT Call Center at 1672. Please call to ask which fields are blooming at that time.

Sara Buri is another home of sunflower fields in Thailand. Travelling by car is recommended as you’ll need to drive along the areas, including Khao Din Phattana in Amphoe Chaloem Phra Kiat; Nayao in Amphoe Phra Phutthabat; Hinson in Amphoe Kaeng Khoi; Salaengpan in Amphoe Wang Muang; Ban Kluai in Amphoe Nong Don; and Mittraphap in Amphoe Muak Lek.
