Ive been to Thailand countless of times but i'll always find some new places of interest in this Land of Smiles and the recent one being the sunflower farm in Saraburi. It was by chance that i read certain trip report on other travel blogs about this wonderful seasonal scene which is available during the cool season of November to January. As i was there during the Christmas holiday, i didnt miss the chance to include a visit to the sunflower farm in my itinerary.
Saraburi is located about 140km from Bangkok, roughly 2 hours travel time by car. Apart from the sunflower farm, it's a very quiet local town with not much things happening and from my observation they are leveraging on its location as a transit town near to the border of Laos and beautiful mountainous landscape as potential tourist attractions.
There are many sunflower farms scattered across Saraburi and it varies in sizes. We happened to be there just roughly an hour before its closing time around 6pm. Entrance fee of THB 10 was charged per person.

Thousands of bright yellow flowers greeted us upon our arrival at the farm, unfortunately the flowers had started to protrude downwards due to setting sun....preferable to come in the morning
The farm had been equipped with cute ornaments such as giant sunflower replica, scarecrow and mini windmill
You can buy some local produces such as sunflower seeds and honey at affordable prices here. It was a very beautiful and romantic place to spend the day with your family and loved ones and i hope to return in the future and spend more time here,especially when the sunflowers are in full bloom and erect.
