Flowers have had tourists flocking to Thailand. There is currently a Christmas festival being held in the northeast province of Loei at the Phu Ruea National Park, which features festive red poinsettia Christmas flowers. The festival will be held until January 31.

The Phu Ruea district, where the Christmas festival is held, is one of the coldest places in Thailand and is the biggest winter flower seller in the country.

In the northern province of Nakhon Sawan, lush pink lotus flowers are drawing tourists to Bueng Boraphet, a lake and swamp. The lotuses currently cover an area of over 100 rai.

In another northern province, Mae Hong Son, tourists are flocking to hills covered in dazzling golden Mexican Sunflowers. In Thai, the flowers are known as Dok Bua Tong.

The flowers mostly bloom from November to December. During this period, the hills and valleys of Mae Hong Son turn bright gold when these wild sunflowers come into full bloom.

Bangkok’s upcoming Floral Fair 2022 is another chance to stop and smell the flowers in Thailand.
