Vineyards of Thailand


Thailand's wine-making industry has come a long way.... Vineyards across three distinguished wine-making regions now produce quality wine. CNN GO



These vineyards are found in Khao Yai, the South of Bangkok, and Northeast Thailand. Wine tours are available. In Hua Hin Hills visitors can tour vineyards in a way you  normally can't in Burgundy or Tuscany: riding on an elephant. 



En route to the sunflower fields in Saraburi, we passed by this vineyard and made a quick stop. We didn't expect to see such a charming spot of the Thai countryside, but we're glad we did.  I call this our tour serendipity.

  14. Your stunning photos look like they came right out of a picture book. I am not a wine connoisseur at all, so it didn't surprise me that Thailand has vineyards. However, the idea of touring by elephant is one that gave me pause. I have always loved elephants, but for the past few years, have been following a rescue sanctuary in Tennessee that tries to provide retired elephants with the environment they require. Web site: (elephants.com).
