In 1954 Mr and Mrs Nong Nooch purchased the land in Pattaya, originally the concept was to utilize this as farm land however they were inspired by an overseas trip and made a decision to convert the land into tropical flower gardens. Formerly suitable for preservation of tropical vegetation species the gardens were later turned into a recreational and tourist attraction. The word Suan indicates garden, so the name translated into English implies Nong Nooch (family) gardens. The garden is currently operated by their son Mr. Kampon Tansacha.
The Nong Nooch Pattaya flower garden has become a well known attraction and the beautiful garden is currently used as a location to host a number of different events. These events range from flower shows, florist exhibitions, botanical research, preservation, education and for the promotion of tourism in Pattaya. The most famous use of the Pattaya Flower gardens is for the Thai Cultural Show which is an annual occasion in Pattaya.
Every single day the flower gardens get over 2000 visitors, a number of these visitors come from other locations in Thailand however, many travel from other areas of Asia and all over the globe to see these lovely gardens. The flower gardens are maintained in immaculate form and they are consistently being enhanced with completely new flowers being included every day.
The Thai cultural activities and dances happen every day, they usually start with The Elephant Show where Elephants are put through humiliation by being made to play football, ride motorbikes and dancing. This is among the more controversial aspects of the flower show and they’re thinking about ending these shows. To Thai people Elephants are admired and have an almost holy status, but to people from other countries and animal rights activists this use of Elephants is often deemed undesirable.
There are several cultural performances daily such as dancing, and theatrical displays of Thai history and culture.
Nong Nuch Flower gardens in Pattaya are located on the old Sukhumvit Road, which is the joining road between Bangkok and Pattaya. The best way from downtown Pattaya to the flower gardens is by Cab.
