Sunflower Fields

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.

To back down the Dutch and protect the land, King Narai Maharat constructed Lopburi as the reserve capital, which is to the North of Ayutthaya and had planned on building fortresses to defend threats. A French priest had heard of this report and offered to use his professional skills in handicraft to aid the building process. Besides, the priest was seeking a way to spread Christianity, Roman Catholic, and so found this path a win-win scheme. His works in were admired and very much appreciated by the King and, later, the priest was given title as Chao Praya Vichaiyane.King Narai Maharat was the last King of Thailands’ Prasat-Tong Dynasty. During his majesty’s reign, Thai literature and art had flourished to its peak. There was decent and strong international relation between various countries.
