Elephant in a Sunflower Field

I was driving through the countryside in Lopburi Province last year when I came across this amazing sight. An elephant walking through a sunflower field. These sites are a popular attraction for Thai tourists who drive hundreds of kilometres to have their pictures taken with sunflowers. For them, the elephant is just an added bonus.

      Not sure if it means anything in the culture, just a pretty background for them to take pictures.

    What time of year can you see the sunflowers? Is there one area that is best to go?

      Usually from about November onwards. Lopburi and Saraburi are good places to go. Keep an eye on http://www.ThaiTravelBlogs.com as I will be posting information there as soon as it becomes available.
