I traveled to Thailand and went on a journey to Jim Thompson Farm just to see the sunflowers there. There are many places in the outskirt of Bangkok that has a sunflower farm, like the Muak lek Sunflower Fields in Saraburi and Pak Chong Sunflower Fields in Khao Yai, but none is as comparable to the popular Jim Thompson Farm. Below is a short video of drone footage showcasing the full bloom sunflowers in Jim Thompson Farm, Thailand.
The Jim Thompson Farm is open to the public only during the cool season in December and January every year. This is the period where the sunflower fully bloom, spreading across the whole field! A spectacular sight and great place to take nice lovely photos. Check out their website here or facebook here to find out their opening hours.
It will take about 3 hrs to travel from Bangkok to Jim Thompson Farm, which is located at Nakhon Ratchasima (Pak Thong Cai). We will be writing a full itinerary for one day trip from Bangkok, stay tuned. Check out our instagram for more photos on Jim Thompson Farm (left column link). It is recommended to stay a day or two in Khao Yai if you are visiting Jim Thompson Farm as Khao Yai is also a beautiful place to stay and venture too. This will also reduce the time of travelling to and fro from Bangkok, which is quite hectic to complete the itinerary in one day. Jim Thompson Farm is open every day to visitors when they open their business in December till they close in January (check with them on the exact dates of opening as every year is different) Jim Thompson Farm Address: Tambol Takob, Amphur Pak Thong Chai, Nakhon Ratchasima, (Korat) Province Tel: 044-373-116 (Monday to Saturday, 09.00 am – 05.00 pm)
