WOW! I've been to Thailand 6 times and I've never even heard of this place??? I must have been blind! Do you mean to tell us that you can actually pet that Jaguar???? What great pictures, thanks a million for sharing them!!! To everyone who hasn't visited yet, GO NOW! Go as quickly as possible, try to avoid May, the rainy season for sure, but go, eat right off the street, as long as the oil is clear, it's safe. Try not to drink too many Singha's! Shop, be sure to shop the Gold Market streets of gold, you may think I'm kidding, not so, oh the roads aren't made of gold, but when you get there, you'll know exactly what I mean, this can be found in Bangkok, and be sure to visit the Kings Palace, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, wear long sleeves, and pants, please out of respect, particularly the women!!!! It is after all, The Kings Palace! Be respectful of their King and Queen, at all times, and you'll have the most fun you've ever had, anywhere. Everyone is super nice, it's not called The Land of Smiles for nothing! Bangkok means City of Angels!! Enjoy yourselves and please, don't embarass me and don't embarass yourselves!
I was bangkok meant black olives which they used to grow. Oh well. I too have been to Thailand and seen many beautiful gardens, but not the Nong Nooch tropical gardens. But we haven't gone to Pattaya yet. Hope to go back and catch the Nong Nooch gardens one of these days.
