This was day 3 of our Thailand adventure! We went to Nong Nooch Botanical Garden. It’s the most amazing and largest garden I’ve seen! The photos doesn’t even justify how beautiful it is. There’s so much more views and attractions to see that aren’t included here. (We were so excited running around that the photos turned out blurry, my cousin was the photographer not me. LOL.)
ON THE WAY// We rode a van to get there and there were few tourists there too. The conductor was so friendly and chatty. I was having a selfie session on my seat and the driver noticed me. He kept glancing and smiling at me and the conductor was trying to make a conversation with me in Thai. My cousin who knows how to speak Thai a little said the driver likes me. Haha! He’s kinda young, maybe just my age. They kept saying “Philippine Beautiful” and I just want to hide my face the entire ride cos there’s other people in there who can hear them. They’re just being friendly though and they don’t do it in a creepy way. I just waved and smiled at them when the ride’s over (thank God!).
ELEPHANT RIDE// First thing we did was ride the elephant. It was a bit pricey for a few minute walk but it was so worth it! I rode with my mom. The elephant’s tall and the seat was wobbly so I was trying not to squeal but I can hear my cousin’s screams behind me! haha.
FLOWERS EVERYWHERE// I feel like I’m in Alice’s Wonderland. It’s so beautiful. There were many animal statues too like pandas, snails, tigers, etc.
VIEW AT THE TOP// It was breathtaking! You can see the whole labyrinth garden at the top. It was high but we managed to go down there holding to rocks. The tourists were looking at us cos we’re the only ones who went down there. People can go down there though. It was so fun!
ELEPHANT SHOW// In the afternoon, they held a show where dancers in Thai costume dances, they showed a bit of Muay Thai, the elephants were dancing too! One of them went to our side and touches us with his trunk! My cousin was again screaming! haha! Then we went to another gym where they show elephants playing darts, football, basketball, hula hoops and they even paint! I am not kidding!
Out of all Thailand experience, this one is my fave. Elephants has officially become one of my favorite animal! 🙂
