Nong Nooch Tropical Garden

Nong Nooch Tropical Garden
Nong Nooch Tropical Garden  in Pattaya

Initially planned as a fruit plantation, the owners had a change of mind after being inspired by the beauty of well-known gardens they visited on a trip abroad. Sprawling over 500 acres, their remarkable creation is wide variety of gardens done up in the European, French and traditional Asian tropical styles, which focuses on plants from the region as well as being a repository of flora and fauna from around the world. It also has the world’s largest collection of tropical palms and cycads, as well as a wide range of orchids.

Some of the more interesting displays are the incredible ‘Cactus Garden’, the bizarre sculpture-based ‘Umbrella Garden’, the ‘Floating Oasis’, the unique ‘Pottery Garden, and the Butterfly Garden, where maroon and green plants create a pattern like those on butterfly wings. Another big draw is the Nong Nooch version of Stonehenge that features thousands of rocks amid neatly manicured shrubbery. A great day’s outing for families as it also features restaurants, elephant and Thai cultural shows, and a mini zoo.
