Blooming flower farms brighten Central Thailand and Isan

Thailand’s fields are alive this time of year, but not with the Sound of Music. More often than not, they are full of endless sunflowers and other blooming annuals; such as, the recent addition of marigolds and sun hemps. For a Thai local experience, sunflowers are the best. Because visitors can bet all the attractions highlighted will be in full bloom with heaps of local Thais taking photos of themselves, their family, friends and of course lots and lots of flowers.

 

Native to North America, the history of the sunflower plant is extraordinary. The plant was cultivated by Native American Indians in an area, which is now present-day Arizona and New Mexico from about 3000 BC. Then around 1500 AD, the sunflower was brought to Europe by Spanish explorers.

 

Sunflower cultivation in Thailand has a much more modern history. Thais started planting sunflowers as a commercial crop in 1988 with a total area of 12 square kilometres. Last year, the area of sunflower fields increased to about 800 square kilometres nationwide and yielded over 60 thousand tons of sunflower oil. Generally, the plants are in full bloom from early November to the end of January.

 

It is a beautiful sight to behold and well worth the trip as most of the more spectacular pastoral settings are located just a short drive away from Bangkok.
