💨🍃 1 :: Thung Bua Tong Field, "Doi Mae U Kho", Mae Hong Son province
When the entire mountain turns into yellow flower at Thung Bua Tong field 🌼@ Doi Mae U Kho, Mae Hong Son. The mountain will change color once a year, from November to the beginning of December only. The field here is the biggest Bua Tong flower in Thailand, totaling up to 1,000 Rai. It looks so magnificent. When you drive through each curve🚗 you will get excited by the view along the way like you were put under a magical spell✨✨. At night, you can also tent in the area to see millions stars up in the sky. I have to say, it is both beautiful and cold.
💨🍃 2 :: Red Lotus Sea, Udon Thani
Let's now go to Red Lotus Sea 🌸🌷🌺 in the northeast region. We come to experience the Unseen in Thailand of the red lotus sea, Kumphawapi district, Udon Thani province. I used to see it from the picture only but have yet seen the actual scene, it's so spectacular.❤️💗 I recommend you to wake up early as these lotus are quite shy 🌸 They will not blossom in the late morning. If you are ready, let's rent a boat 🚣 It is 400 THB each boat which can take up to 8 people (it's only 50 THB each). It is about 1-2 hours for back and forth trip. If you love making merit, there's also a temple in the middle of the sea where you can also pray and make some merit too 😇
****very important**** you should go there before noon as it will only bloom in the morning and it's only blossoming from December to February.
💨🍃 3 :: Doi Tung, Chinag Rai
If you want to take your girlfriend out but have no idea of where to go? 🤔 Here is a great choice for you, you can go take a vibrant walk on this bridge surrounded by the nature 🌳🌲 at "Doi Tung Tree Top Walk", Chiang Rai province. 🌟 This wooden bridge is about 300 m long. Before walking on it, the staff will demonstrate how to walk and fasten the safety equipment by securing your waist with a locked hook on a sling along the walk. It is both fun and safe, confirm! 🤗👏
The fee: 150 THB each
💨🍃 4 :: Khao Kho, Phetchabun
Although we come to Khao Kho very often, we feel the atmosphere is different every time we visit. Sometimes, the sunset paint the sky into purple and pink and other times, we come across the fog that keep changing its shape. This makes our every visit is a fun and enjoyable one.
💨🍃 5 :: Wat Phumin, Phra That Khao Noi, National Museum, Nan
Nan is such a cute, slow life, and happy city. We go for a Nan day tour by traveling to downtown Nan area as it's so cute. 😍😍 We start our trip by paying a homage to Phra That Khao Noi in the morning of which it enshrines Buddha's relics at the top of a hill. There, you can also see a fog covering the entire Nan. Then, we go to a leelawadee tunnel at Nan National Museum. After that, we go to visit Wat Phumin in order to appreciate the charming Pu Man Ya Man painting. We then end our day by going for a walking street and enjoying a northern style food called "Kan Tok" in front of this temple.
💨🍃 6 :: Pang Ung, Mae Hong Son
“Pang Ung” is a place for mountain and beautiful pine forest scenery 🍀as well as a mist floating over the lake. ☁️💧 It is named “Switzerland of Thailand”. I advise you guys to come here for a mist floating over the lake scene and a cold atmosphere in the morning, ☀️☁️ especially when the sun is rising and shining out from the trees. You can also enjoy this view by taking a bamboo boat where you can see everything reflecting in a clear water just like a mirror. It is indeed a hard-to-forget scene. 💨🍃
💨🍃 7 :: Baan Rak Thai, Mae Hong Son
For Baan Rak Thai, you must at least spend a night here, or two, or three, or four, oh well, many nights still won't do because it offers so many beautiful corners for us to take photos. Soon, our page will also review these corners in details, please stay in touch.
Good accommodation, delicious food, beautiful view for both landscape and portrait photos
💨🍃 8 :: Khun Wang, Chiang Mai
Winter is the time when Nang Phaya Suekhrong or Thai Sakura is blossoming.🌸🐯 If you wish to capture beautiful flowers scene, you must not miss .....Nang Phaya Surkhrong tunnel at Khun Wang....Royal Agricultural Research Center Chiang Mai where it was built due to our late King's initiative thought. 👨👩👧👦💛9️⃣
Back to 1982, Khun Wang was an opium field 🌿 (we all know that opium is a drug which is bad for our health). Our late King had a word to build Royal Agricultural Research Center "Khun Wang" so that local villagers can plant alternatives to the opium and that they can earn good income. Traveling here, I can't help but thinking about our beloved Father 😇✨
💨🍃 9:: Kew Mae Pan, Chiang Mai
Kew Mae Pan, a nature trail of Doi Inthanon is cold, and also the highest peak in Thailand. 😂💕 For this educational trail, a tour guide will take care of us along the way (the fee is 200 THB/group and each group can take no more than 10 people.💛) Our tour guide is still very young 👦 but very strong. He can walk and not tired, for us, the salary man? We have to ask to stop several times 😅😅 But the view we see is so beautiful. Starting from huge trees like clouds,🌲🌲 a beautiful winterbrown grassland, and a spectacular viewpoint under a vast sky in a middle of this huge forest. I'm sure it is many people's favorite area.
💨🍃10 :: Sukhothai Historical Park
Sukhothai Historical Park is a very beautiful and spacious historical park. It has several temples and we can visit her culture and history in many area. During Loy Krathong festival, it holds a big celebration with beautiful light and sound.
💨🍃 11 :: ฺBansuan Chomview, Noen Maprang, Phitsanulok
You can take your loved one to enjoy a view on a heart-shaped huge swing 🌳💛 at Noen Maprang, Phitsanulok. Noen Maprang is a small district offering simple homestay 🏡 at a friendly price 👏which offers in several houses. If you happen to come in this area, do not forget to pay a visit to this romantic heart-shaped swing as well.
💨🍃 12 :: Jim Thompson Farm, Nakhon Ratchasima
Flowers 🌸 and mountains⛰ @Jim Thompson Farm
This tiny cosmos on a huge mountain is what attracted us the most. We visited it last year and this year, we are back for this tiny cosmos again. 🌺🌸 This is because Jim Thompson Farm is only open for visit once a year.
Weekdays: the visit fee is 130 THB for a child and 180 THB for an adult/// Sat-Sun: a child is 160 THB and an adult is 220 THB.
If you love taking photos with this flower, you must not miss it for whatever given reason <3
💨🍃 13:: Norlae Strawberry Farm, Chiang Mai
Traveling to the north, let's go to strawberry farm. 🍓🍓 It is automatically that when talking about strawberry, we would think of Chiang Mai. Here, we will wake up early and take you to tour strawberry farm at "Norlae" where it was planted in a terraced field. Meanwhile, the mist and a light shining from behind big trees will make the scene even more memorable.
💨🍃 14:: Ang Khang Agricultural Station, Chiang Mai
I have to say that now Ang Khang Agricultural Station offers many more attractions within. 👏 (Flower House/ Rose Garden/ Ang Khang Bonsai Garden/ Ang Khang Tea Factory/ Ang Khang Bamboo Garden/ Ang Khang Information Center/ Suan 80 Garden/ Suan Kham Doi Garden/ Suan Hom Garden/ English Rose Garden/ Suan Somdej Garden/ Plum Garden/ Winter Vegetation and Fruit Garden/ Phra That Doi Ang Khang/ Ban Khob Dong/ Ban Norlae/ etc. 🚗🚙 Only coming to here, you could easily spend two days roaming around.
For accommodation, 🏡 I stay at the Ang Khang Agricultural Station which is one of my most impressive things here, that is because....
1. It is cheap. 💸 (we stay at Ban Rim Doi + additional bed for 4,900 THB which can accommodate up to 6 people and it is about 817 THB each.)
2. For this 817 THB, it includes breakfast and dinner buffet provided by the royal project which is so delicious.
3. The place is extraordinarily decorated. It's like we are no longer in Thailand. We check in in the evening to find a fireplace and a jazz music, so super great!!!!!
💨🍃 15:: Phu Langka, Phayao
Stay in a 3 digit THB hotel but enjoy a 7 digit THB view 😄😄at Phu Langka, Phayao.
If you are one of those who like to travel to spectacular places under friendly budget, raise your hands please...💛💛 In this area, we can rent a tent for about 300-800 THB for 2 people stay and don't worry if you don't know how to set up a tent. After a good rest, you could wake up early and walk to the magic mountain for the sunrise, sip a cup of hot coffee and a pan egg, and if you are lucky, you could see an overwhelming sea fog floating around, what a good day to begin with, right?
💨🍃 16:: Phu Lom Lo, Phetchabun
-From Phetchabun, we drive here for Phu Lom Lo. Then, at "Rong Kla" village, we decided to take a truck further 🏡 This village live both Hmong and Thai people and Hmong kids are so adorable.👶👦👧 There're several winter vegetables and fruits to buy while waiting for the truck (the money is gone since the start, haha).
- The truck is for rent 🚙 and drive up yourself, it can take up to only 10 people and the rental price is 1,000 THB per truck.
- It's super dusty, if you are allergic to it, please sit inside the car. 😷 For the ones who sit outside, do not forget to bring a hat, 👒sunglasses😎 and a scarf to cover yourself with.
- There's restroom available up here but!!! no food 😱😱, so you must bring your own food.
💨🍃 17:: Phu Tub Berk, Phetchabun
It is not so far from Phu Lom Lo. I recommend you to plan the trip where you can cover both places at once. If you don't mind about accommodation and restroom, I highly recommend you to sleep in a tent where you can enjoy the atmosphere for as soon as you wake up the next morning.
💨🍃 18:: Singha Park, Chiang Rai
Let's camp with Singha.🐯 Simple happiness can be generated without hunting. At Singha Park Chiang Rai, you can tent 🏕 get close to the nature🍃 and enjoy a fire camp activity at night. 🔥 Roasting marshmallow to ease the cold and waking up early to bike and enjoy the scenery, and if you like the view from a high angle, you can jump from zipline or take a balloon up too, what a great place, isn't it?

💨🍃19:: Thung Salaeng Luang National Park, Phitsanulok
If you are a nature, pine forest, and mountains view lover, do not miss out here. But to drive here, a sedan is not recommended as the road is still a dirt one where you could get struck on a sedan.
💨🍃 20:: Dok Ngon Nak, Suksupha Resort, Prachinburi
Now, Dok Ngon Nak is blossoming and will show her beauty until the end of winter!!! If you love flower🌸🌸, you can't miss this beautiful purple flowers at Saksupha Resort, Prachinburi.
🧡💛 Usually, we can see this flower in Uttaradit, but now it takes only 2 hours from Bangkok🚗 and we can enjoy her beauty. We can either stay over or do a one day trip.
😁😁 If you are planning to come, please come before noon because it will blossom only in the morning and sometimes, there will be some dew too which is really refreshing. If you are here in the afternoon, many of them are already sleeping, so come in the morning because it's really beautiful!!!
💨🍃 21:: Phu Singh, Bueng Kan
Bueng Kan is the 77th province of Thailand and offer its coolest tourist place called "Phu Singh". This place is a chic attraction where three whale rocks 🐋🐋🐋 is the highlight, this includes a dad, a mom, and a kid. There're actually many other photo taking points like Hermit Cave Viewpoint, Phu Singh Heart, Sang Roi Bo Viewpoint, etc. It's worth to notice that each location is quite far from one another and you probably get really tired walking to all, but!!!! A 4x4 truck could take you to every spot, save a lot of your time too... #you can easily chill and walk around #elderly can also come, it's not tiring at all
- If you don't have a 4x4 truck, you can rent one for 500 THB.
- No food and drink sold up there, you must bring your own. 🌽🍍🍢🍖
- But the restroom 🚽 is available on which the staff volunteers to take care for us.
- Contact the staff for more information at:
P'Sapsin Chongsi (Forest Protection Unit) tel: 088-563-8852.
💨🍃 22:: Huai Nam Dang National Park, Chiang Mai
This place is a place for mountains and a sea fog. ☁️ Huai Nam Dang National Park covers both Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son... so it's a perfect plan to travel to these two provinces together This time, we focus on Doi Kew Lom Viewpiont which is a very beautiful and popular viewpoint.
In the morning, we can see Doi Chiang Dao,⭐️ wait for the sun to rise ☀️ while enjoying a sea fog ☁️ and high mountain view. ☘️
At night, we can also go for the Milky Way hunt.
Also, the national park accommodation is available at Doi Kew Lom Viewpoint so we didn't have to travel far for the sunrise!!!! We can just wake up and enjoy the scene right in front of our room, awesome!!!!!
💨🍃 23:: Mon Bridge Sangkhlaburi, Kanchanaburi
Now, this place is for Bangkok people. Above places are taking quite long traveling from Bangkok. This winter, we can also choose to not go that far by taking a chill walk at Mon Bridge in the morning. In addition to the sunrise, a mist floating around mountains, you can also see way of life of people here.
That's it, 23 places that both of us have visited for the past 3 years during the winter. If you guys have other locations, please share with us too.
