“Live life with no excuses, travel with no regret”Oscar Wilde
My family and I visited Noong Nooch Botanical garden in March 2015.
In case if you get a chance to visit Pattaya, never miss this beautiful Garden (obviously it is all your personal taste and preference). It’s worth the money and please ensure that your camera is fully charged before entering this garden. Nong Nooch garden is a strange addition to the nightclub and bar scene we all normally associate with Pattaya,
There are ferries from both Krabi and Phuket, but the frequency of the ferries and the time varies from season to season. We took a ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Don. The ferry ride is roughly 1.5 hours long. The boats were nice with comfortable seats. There are also decks outside from where you can enjoy the view of the clear blue water.
This is one of the biggest botanical gardens in Southeast Asia. This was actually a private garden that was meant to be a fruit plantation when the land was first purchased in 1954, but the owner, Mrs. Nongnooch Tansacha became inspired by other botanical gardens after traveling the world, and decided to have one of her own on her newly-purchased land instead.
This is a huge garden (500+ acres) and am quite sure you will certainly get tired after reaching mid way. Really this is hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhuuuuuuuuuuggggggggeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…. But you have options like ‘rent a bicycle’.
