Can you imagine frolicking amidst a kaleidoscope of colours?

I have never really had a bucket list, but if I were to have one, witnessing Mother Nature blush in the Land of Smiles would have to be my top priority. For those armed with a thirst for wanderlust, we have sniffed out the best flower fields in Thailand which rival Hokkaido’s beauty.

1. Singha Park

Adrenaline junkies often head to Singha Park in Chiang Rai to seek out exhilarating activities; ziplining over a vast tea plantation, rock climbing and even an adventure rope course. But the highlight is definitely its eye-popping flower fields which stretch on for miles and miles. If you are lucky, you just might chance upon swans gliding in the lake to make your experience extra memorable!

They say that the best way to explore this dreamy wonderland is on a set of wheels, and we can see why. An endless bed of blooms line the roads, conjuring the illusion of a whimsical tunnel-like path. This can’t help but give us rural Japanese countryside feels.

If you find it inconvenient to lug your own bike over, fret not. There are tandem bikes for rent, and even children’s bicycles if you have your little ones in tow. With all that, don’t hesitate to make this place your next family getaway!

Stop and smell the wildflowers at Phu Soi Dao National Park in Phitsanulok for a restorative refuge. This trekking haven is home to crystal waterfalls such as the famous five-tier Phu Soi Dao waterfall. 

Fun fact: This park has a cool climate all year ‘round due to its altitude at 2,102m above sea level. 

Although it is a six-hour climb to the peak, your uphill struggle will be rewarded by flourishing purple Murdannia flowers. From mid-August to early October, the park’s natural pine forest is brightened by the abundance of these delicate blooms.

You can even camp under the stars. There’s nothing quite like falling asleep to the gush of the waterfall, and waking up to a lush meadow bursting with a delightful array of flowers. As the song goes in Aladdin — it’s a whole new world!

8. Mon Cham

Located on a hill ridge in the area of Mong Nong Hoi village, Mon Cham is brimming with colourful blooms, from Poppies to Verbena Bonariensis in unadulterated nature. There is even a log swing at the peak that is perfect for your Instagram aesthetic; so bring along a good camera to snap memories!

Savour its blooming season, which falls between October and February. You’d be hard-pressed to believe that this used to be a desolate forest in the past. 

Tip: The best way to travel to Mon Cham is by car. This is because the roads leading to Mon Cham are lateritic soil trails, which makes it difficult to navigate on foot.
