You don’t have to fly to Japan, France or Spain to see sunflower field! It is right here in Hong Kong! Can you believe it?
This farm located between Yuen Long and Sheung Sui, is called San Tin Farm (信芯園). Actually, it is my third year to this farm. The first year, they had a field of amazing yellow and red lily, which

It just felt so great to be in nature, especially with the flowers, I believe flowers have some healing power! It reminded me of the sunflowers field I had been to in Hokkaido, Japan with my family a few years ago, I have to say this one is as gorgeous as the one in Japan!
My sister and I went there on a weekday, which is perfect because it was not crowded at all. There were some photographers, a couple, 2 pregnant women, a family with a cute daughter. The field is large and everyone had their own spaces to take photos without disturbing the others. We took our time and took tons of photos.
It was a sunny day and we were soaking wet after spending almost 2 hours in the field. There is a covered roof path if you wish to stay under the shade. You may get some cold drink at HKD$10 per bottle which was perfect under this hot weather.
There are different types of sunflowers. Below are 2 types, with different colors in the middle. The one on the left with the yellow center is shorter, which grow to around 150cm. The other type on the right with the black/brownish center are much taller, which grow to as tall as 200cm. Both types look lovely!
I talked to Kiki who works there, she told me that the sunflowers field will probably last until the end of August if there is no typhoon. She said the operation of the farm is changing every year, this year, they did not harvest much of the sunflower and keep them as flowers field to let people to photos, however unlike previous years, there are a lot less people to come to the farm and buy sunflowers home, which make the farm even harder to be sustainable. One part of the field is closed and might be open at the end of July.
It is not easy to sustain a flower farm in Hong Kong, thank you so much to the owner for growing these beautiful sunflowers and open the farm for public viewing. Hope everyone
