Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens is a nice day out especially if you have children. A 30 minute drive from Pattaya and you can watch elephants play soccer.
Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens
Pisit and Nongnooch Tansacha purchased the 600-acre (2.4 km2) plot of land in 1954 with the intentions of developing the land as a fruit plantation. However, the owners instead decided to plant tropical flowers and plants as a wildlife conservation project. The garden opened to the public in 1980, and management was transferred to Pisit and Nongnooch’s son Kampon Tansacha in 2001. The garden currently fills 500 out of the 600 acres (2.4 km2).
No need to walk
If you are lazy like me just jump on a bus or an elephant.
Bus or elephant?
I thought my 110 kilo may have been too heavy for the poor elephant. 🙂
I still prefer the bus. 🙂
They are such magnificent animals.
All sorts of bird life at Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens.
Are you looking at me punk?
Great colours on this guy.
He’s not looking at you but I am
There is lots to see and do at Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens
Up close and personal
The little guy is about to have a bath.
Time for a bath
He is loving every minute of being hosed down.
Thirsty work at Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens
Carrying people around all day is thirsty work, but this hose really hits the spot. 🙂
Here is my friend Jeff Gill from Melbourne, he fell in love with Pattaya and the Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens.
After a few hours in the sun I’m cactus 🙂
Sorry folks that’s just Aussie slang for “I’m worn out”. 🙂
