During this season, the countdown for the winter holiday has started. Thus, you might have started planning for a trip with your family or friends as well. But what is the usual winter? It is everything covered in white and a bed of snowflakes, right? However, spending winter in cities like Lampang and Mae Hong Son is covered in a yellow golden bed. Winter in these places is the perfect time to see the amazing Sunflower fields in Thailand.
Lampang is a city in Northern Thailand that is located about 72km from Chiang Mai. This small town is best known for its richness in temples and hot springs. It boasts some of the best Thailand tourist spots such as Wat Phra That Lampang Luang where Lampang’s very own Emerald Buddha can be seen.
Starting November until December, this city turns into one of the most beautiful Sunflower fields in Thailand. These golden flowers bloom in Mae Moh, a major coal mine in the country. Aside from the view, the air here is cooler than the usual humid weather in Thailand which adds a better experience!
MAE HONG SON
Another popular destination in Northern Thailand is Mae Hong Son. Well, this place is famous not only because of Mae Hong Son loop but also the existence of one of the Sunflower fields in Thailand. These flowers bloom in Doi Mae U-Khor which is more than 1,000m above sea level.

Actually, the Sunflowers originated in Central America. However, it is said that it was brought to Thailand by Christian missionaries in the mid-1900s. In addition, don’t be surprised if there are many Thai people rather than foreign ones. This is because this sight is highly anticipated especially by the locals.

For some, their holidays are white but here in Northern Thailand, it is golden due to the Sunflower fields. There are direct flights to Lampang from Bangkok but there are only flights to Mae Hong Son from Chiang Mai. Either way, the pretty Mexican Sunflowers are excited to see you so book your flight now only at Bangkok Airways!
