At just 5 kilometer from Lilawadee is the largest botanical garden in Thailand, a popular destination for both Thais and foreign visitors. It is an enormous park full of tropical plants from many places all over the world. One of the purposes of this unique garden is to grow every species of palm tree that exist in the world.
A ride in the minivan will give you an idea of the size of the park. It is 2.4 million square meters and includes wondrously layed out gardens, a beautiful lake where you can rent peddle boats, naturally arranged waterfalls, and a sculpture and pottery garden. Moreover, there is a cactus garden with more than 300 species from all over the world. That is a rare sight one doesn’t see often. You can get an entirely different perspective of the garden by taking a ride on an elephant....!
And charming Thai pavilions and restaurants let you enjoy the taste of Thai food or, if you prefer, appetizing international dishes. You may want to take a nourishing break because there is much more to see. The park is huge and offers many attractions. For instance, in the fabulous and always well-maintained park is a small zoo, a butterfly garden, as well as an orchid garden. For a small fee you can watch and photograph various animals and exotic plants up close. You can also have your picture taken with an adult tiger, without having to worry about becoming supper of this majestic animal. To the contrary, the beautiful cat appears to enjoy being stroked and caressed. So it can be done....!
