Siam Tulips and Phi Ta Khon Festival Trip

Sai Thong National Park in Chaiyaphum

TRAVEL DATE: 24-28 June 2015
DESTINATION: Chaiyaphum Province and Loei Province
ACCOMMODATION: Thep Sathit View Resort and Phudara Resort

Towards the end of June 2015, I was invited by TAT Isaan (Northeast) to join them on a Thai media trip to take photographs at two major festivals. The first destination was “Dok Krachiao Blooming Festival” in Chaiyaphum. These are known in English as Siam Tulips and they bloom towards the start of the rainy season from about June to August. We next drove further north to Loei where we took photographs at the colourful Phi Ta Khon festival in Dan Sai district. During the trip I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow.
