Thailand is blooming with flower festivals from December 2022-January 2023

Numerous flower festivals are on in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, while the ever-popular ‘Jim Thompson Farm Tour’ is taking place in Nakhon Ratchasima.

Bangkok, 16 December, 2022 – The many wonderful flower festivals are taking place in December 2022 and January 2023 in the north of Thailand, when the temperature is comfortably lower and various species of flower are in full bloom.

This is the time when the renowned Bua Tong (wild sunflower) carpets the countryside of Doi Mae U Kho in Mae Hong Son province in brilliant yellow, and beautiful pink cherry blossoms are in full splendour in Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, while millions of red lotuses adorn Nong Han freshwater lake in Udon Thani in the Northeast. Nearer to Bangkok, there are the dazzling yellow sunflowers at Phattana Nikhom in Lop Buri to admire.

Here are some of the flower festivals to visit, and to enjoy during what is the best time to travel for tourists – when the temperature and humidity is lower, making for more comfortable travels.

For those wanting to combine the picturesque North and Northeast with the stunning beaches of Southern Thailand on their holiday, this is also a great time to do so with the Southern region not overly hot or humid during December to February.

Popular spots like Phuket, Krabi, and the Phi Phi Islands on the west coast of the Thai peninsula are best visited from November through April, while great underwater visibility means December is a good time for diving and snorkelling.

Spots like Samui and Phangan Island on the eastern side of the peninsula, in the Gulf of Thailand, are best visited from December to June.
