Sunflower Blooming Season

The Sunflower Blooming Season occurs in Chiang Mai during the winter season which runs from November to December each year.

Northern Thailand is home to scenic landscapes, but perhaps nothing rivals the beauty of the sunflower gardens in Mae Hong Son, one of the best spots to view the Sunflowers in Chiang Mai.

Sunflower Blooming Season Chiang Mai 2018 Dates, Thailand

The landscape of Mae Hong Son changes remarkably during the Sunflower Blooming Season as the entire region is painted in delightful hues of yellow.

The flowers are spread out over an expansive garden that measures about 400 hectares and the most amazing time periods to see the fields is at sunrise or at sunset. The blooming flowers are not the sole attraction to this part of Chiang Mai as the weather during this period is rather pleasant. For this reason tourists get to enjoy a wide array of activities. The location of the sunflower gardens makes it easy to tour and sample other attractions in the region.

The two main places to best enjoy the flower festival during this time is Doi Mai U-Kho, in Khun Yuam district and the other is at at Doi Mae Hoh, in Mae Sariang district. These festivals are lively and a lot of fun and offer heaps of activities including exhibitions, local performances, sports, games and stalls arranged by local hilltribe people.

The Chiang Mai Sunflower Blooming Season is a must-experience whenever you are travelling in Northern Thailand in the months of November and December.
