Other Essential Information

History of Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden:

It was in the year 1954 that Mrs Nongnooch Tansacha and Mr Pisit bought 1,500 rai (approximately 600 acres) of land, consisting of the valley and rolling hills between Pattaya and Sattahip on Sukhumvit Road in Na Jomtien, to build a fruit plantation. Mrs Nongnooch went for a trip abroad during which she was fascinated by the beauty of some of the world’s renowned gardens and decided to turn the fruit plantation into a tropical garden. She put in years of hard work, and finally, in 1980, the garden was opened to the public. Gradually, the garden turned into a tourist attraction with a swimming pool, restaurants, seminar halls, banquet hall and accommodations. Later on, two shows - The Thai cultural show and the Elephant Show, were added, and the garden was handed over to her son, Mr Kampon Tansacha.
