Thai do love flowers and they love traveling with friends. So what is better as going with a all group to the Thai-famous sunflower-fields around Saraburi (and Lopburi) ? Last year around December we went with a all group to the area of Saraburi, or actually Muak Lek. This area is about 50km after Saraburi city and reached from Route 2 (Mittraphap road), just follow the sign for the sunflowers.

Of course there is more as only sunflowers, Muak Lek is also Thai-famous for its "Seven little sisters Waterfall" (Namtok Chet Saonoi) which are actually seven big & smaller rapids. It is along the same road as the sunflower-fields but about 9km further. It is a great place to sit along the water, have something to eat & drink and Thai will go swimming with all their cloths on. In the weekend it is a bit busy with people from Bangkok, like when we were there once when there were 3 buses from an Bangkok University.
