The Loei province of Thailand is home to some of the most beautiful flora in the nation, and if you enjoy seeing spectacular flowers against the backdrop of breathtaking Thai scenery, then you should start booking a trip to the region today.
There are certain regions of Thailand that have been overtaken by tourism, but Loei is just beginning to see growth in this industry. This means your visit will include comfortable accommodation and amenities, but you'll come home with an experience that few get to enjoy.
Loei is in the north of Thailand and shares a border with Laos. It's a mountainous region with awe-inspiring natural scenery, but it also has a rich culture that will allow you to enjoy a true Thai holiday.
If you haven't made plans for New Year's yet, you're in luck. The Sea of Fog and Beautiful Flower Blossom festival happens every year in Loei at the end of December and into the beginning of the new year.
You'll get to see plenty of stunning flowers, as they are displayed on the front lawn of the Phu Ruea District Office. There's also a parade that features floats adorned with blossoms, and gardeners from the region showcase their best winter fauna.
Loei is also home to the Tham Erawan, a temple that has been carved into the caves of a limestone mountain. You can enjoy this unique location any time of day, but we recommend visiting at sunset when the views are simply out of this world.
