Nong Nooch Tropical Garden
Nong Nooch is in Pattaya, Thailand, just about 3 hours away from Bangkok. It is known for its elephant spectacular which includes traditional thai dance by dancers, thai boxing match, thai battle scene with elephants and elephant playing sports. I was there for the garden and plants. So I actually stayed there in the chalet for a few days, and explored the garden well when it is all quiet before the tourists rushed in and after the tourists all gone.
It was a delightful place to stay here, and I paid 1/3 of what I would normally do in other hotels.
I will start with this spectacular view of the European Style Garden in full sun while I rested in a thai pavilion up on a hill.
