The sunflower season starts in Central Thailand
 

The sunflower season has stated in Central Thailand. According to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Lop Buri Office, the first sunflowers of the year can now be seen at some fields nearby Khao Chin Lae in Lop Buri, just a short drive northeast of Bangkok.

The sunflower season in Lop Buri and Sara Buri provinces in Central Thailand 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. This year, the season covers from 1 November, 2017, to 31 January, 2018.

Each sunflower field lasts about 10 days, and 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 Phatthana Nikhom, Chai Badan, and Khok Samrong districts. The most famous location is at the fields nearby Khao Chin Lae, where the limestone mountain provides an impressive backdrop for the vast landscape of beautiful yellow flowers as they turn their bright faces to follow the sun.

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 and Amphoe Muak Lek.

Since it’s a bit of a challenge to map which fields will see the sunflowers in bloom at which time, you might like to call the TAT Lop Buri Office for some recommendations at Tel: +66 (0) 3677 0096-7.
