Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden
Visiting: Pattaya, Nong Nooch village
Duration: 5 hours
Combining spectacular landscaped gardens with a Thai cultural theatre, the Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden in Chonburi makes an ideal day trip for visitors wanting to escape the hectic bustle of Bangkok.
After picking you up from your port of call in our air-conditioned van, we will take a leisurely and picturesque drive towards Nong Nooch village, through orchid farms, coconut and mango plantations. Nong Nooch is nestled between lush green hills, and its 500-acres of landscaped grounds include tropical, botanical and even European-styled gardens. There are plenty of art installations, scattered throughout the grounds, and the creative genius of Nong Nooch’s landscape artists is truly exceptional.
Take a stroll through the gardens at your leisure, soaking up the floral fragrances and discovering new and unexpected species. There are two picturesque lakes, cactus and bromeliad gardens, miniature bonsai trees, and even a hothouse for orchids and ferns. Nong Nooch truly is a gardener’s dream!
In addition to its beautiful gardens, Nong Nooch is also home to the Thai Village Theater where cultural performances of traditional folk songs and ceremonies are presented. From Thai boxing to sword fighting, the theater offers a captivating insight into Thailand’s rich cultural heritage.
As you head back towards your Bangkok port of call, we will stop at a local gift shop in Pattaya where you will have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs, handicrafts, Thai silk and semi-precious stones, as a reminder of your time in this fascinating country.
