Traipsing through a field of Insta-ready marigolds on a farm has become the latest reason to head east to Buriram province.
Nam and Vill’s Marigold Farm opened yesterday as a tourist attraction along Highway 24, a major thoroughfare which also leads to the Phanom Rung Historical Park’s collection of ancient Khmer temples.
It is privately owned by a married couple Kunanun Khunwong and Chutikan Polkatok. They told reporters the field was a side project made possible by many people in the community of Ban Nong Haew.
Entry is free. It’s located on Highway 24 in Ban Nong Haew, Charoensuk, Chalermprakiat district.
Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
