Growing a garden takes time but the payoff is well worth it when it fully blooms, especially if someone grew acres of garden away from the city.

Whether you’re a plant parent or enjoy garden walks, Nong Nooch Tropical Garden is the most impressive and largest garden in Southeast Asia that you need to visit for fresh air.


Many gardens to explore


Nong Nooch Tropical Garden is a 500-acre botanical garden and is the largest botanical garden in Southeast Asia, with many sections dedicated to sculptures and specific plants. It takes more than half a day to explore the gardens, some of which include:

  • Orchid Garden
  • Butterfly Hill (plants arranged into shapes and animal sculptures)
  • Waterfall Garden (man-made waterfalls)
  • Heart Garden
  • Bonsai Garden
  • Cactus Garden
