Strawberries & The Strawberry Festival
Mae Sap in the Samoeng District is famous for its strawberries and the annual Strawberry Festival, is the biggest in Thailand.
The strawberry season stretches from early December right through to late March, Doi Nok Strawberry Resort is in the heart of this region and grows its strawberries to be truly organic, grown to the regulations and standards of the EU Soil Association.
It has been said that you will truly never taste such wonderful strawberries! Many locals have said that they can tell you exactly where the strawberries were grown, just by taste, even down to the individual grower such as Doi Nok Strawberry Resort.
Doi Nok Strawberry Resort produces the best jam, smoothies, drinks and produce from the strawberries, which you can thoroughly enjoy in its restaurant. During the season, you can pick the strawberries (hat and umbrella are provided) yourself, followed by a wonderful strawberry refreshment afterwards from the restaurant. It also provides a great photo opportunity as well as a really enjoyable day out!
