Visit Ban Pa Pong Piang. This place is rice terraces which are one of the most photogenic spots in Thailand. Ban Pa Pong Piang (sometimes spelt as Pa Pong Pieng) is a little hamlet of rolling rice terraces nestled in the mountains of Doi Inthanon national park. Surrounded by fertile forested mountains, the verdant views and nature here are spectacular. The pictures speak for themselves.

The rice farming season begins in May when the first rains of the year fall. This is when you’ll see the reflections of the small rice seedlings in the water filled rice paddies. The rice plants reach their full length and greenness, during July- September (the peak of rainy season). After this they turn into a glorious yellow-golden color, when they’re ready to be harvested in October. So, the best time to visit Pa Pong Piang, really depends on what type of scenery you prefer. Outside of the rice farming season (November-April), the rice paddies will be left fallow. Pa Pong Piang is open to visitors year round.

Lunch will be served at the local restaurant.   Return to the town.
