Sunflower Fields are found between Lop Buri and Saraburi along the Phatthana Nikhom-Wang Muang route. From December to January (Thai winter season), the sunflowers along the road attract all passersby when they are in full bloom.
When the cool season comes in November-December, the fields and roadsides of Sara Buri are filled with blooming sunflowers. The magnificent yellow hue is truly a sight to be seen as recommended by Sara Buri travel guides. There are over 10,000 acres of sunflower fields in Amphoe Phra Phuttha Bat, Kaeng Khoi, Nong Don, Nong Khae, Muak Lek, and the most in Wang Muang. On the border between Lop Buri and Sara Buri Provinces, along Pattana Nikhom-Wang Muang Road, more and more sunflowers are being planted every year for the blooming sunflower festival, which is now spreading to other districts. If you like soaking in the view of vast sunflower fields with horse and dairy cattle grazing nearby the surrounding vineyards, you have to visit Amphoe Wang Muang and Muak Lek, where the sunflower fields will be in full bloom in December-January. But if you prefer a family trip in hillside sunflower fields, Tambon Hin Son and Tha Khlo of Amphoe Kaeng Khoi are your places. You will find the most blooming sunflower fields around November-December, the 20,000 acres of beauty. Taking a Bangkok-Nong Khai train is also an amazing experience. You will see blooming sunflowers rolling past both sides of the train when you get to Tambon Hin Son and Tha Khlo, especially in the middle and the end of December. Apart from visiting the blooming sunflower festival, you can also learn how to plant and take care of sunflowers. There are many products made from sunflowers for sales. And if you have a little more time, you should visit Wat Phra Phuttha Bat and Wat Phra Phuttha Chai, go see caves and waterfalls, or perhaps try wine tasting at one of the vineyards. Such trips can be a relaxing distraction in Thailand. Sunflower fields are growing in popularity and gaining more and more attention, so many more provinces have started to planet sunflowers to increase tourism. Yet, Lop Buri and Sara Buri are still the hotspots of sunflower fields in Thailand.
