Enjoy the blooming beauty of Krachiao Flower Field in Chaiyaphum this June to August

Picturesque fields of Siam Tulip or Dok Krachiao flowers can be seen in all their colourful beauty during this time.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to recommend a visit to Chaiyaphum province in Northeast Thailand, to see the beautiful scenery created by the Siam Tulip flower – or Dok Krachiao – that comes into full bloom each year at the beginning of the rainy season from June to August.

During this period, fields of the colourful flowers can be admired at the Pa Hin Ngam National Park in Thep Sathit district, and at Sai Thong National Park in Nong Bua Rawe district.

The Krachiao flowers are typically white and pink. At Sai Thong National Park, both white and pink flowers can be seen, while at Pa Hin Ngam National Park, it is only the pink flowers.

The scenery and landscapes of the Northeastern region or Isan are particularly beautiful during the rainy season or ‘green season’, and Chaiyaphum with its fields of Dok Krachiao is no exception.

Chaiyaphum is one of the prominent destinations for green season travel, as it is known for its nature. Along with the Pa Hin Ngam and Sai Thong National Parks, there are also two others – Phu Laen Kha National Park and Tat Ton National Park – as well as Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary.

Another drawcard for visitors to Chaiyaphum during this time is the ‘sea of mist’ around cliffs in the national park areas, such as Pha Hum Hot in Sai Thong National Park, Pha Sut Phaen Din in Pa Hin Ngam National Park, and Pha Hua Nak in Phu Laen Kha National Park.

Tourists wanting to visit the Park must first purchase their entrance ticket through the QueQ application before arriving at the park entrance. The park opens daily from 06.00-18.00 Hrs.

Kindly note that as normal practice, Thailand’s national park system closes several attractions every year for a certain period, depending on weather and park conditions. Dates are varied, and the closure is often due to extreme weather, especially during the rainy months, that may create unsafe conditions and allows for some ecological recovery time. Therefore, it is recommended that travellers find out more about the rules and regulations at each national park before visiting.
