The best place to see in Pattaya - Nong Nooch Garden (Pattaya)

Pattaya is one of the best tourist place in Thailand to enjoy the beer beaches, but there is more to it.There are lot of other sightseeing places that can be seen in and around the city.One of the most top rated attraction is "Nong Nooch garden", which is in the north part of the city around 30mins drive from the Walking Street. Its spread in 500 acres and you can easily spend half day to see all the greenery along with some man made concrete animals. You can also enjoy the Elephant show and musical performances within the garden.The entry cost around 800THB, but if you book online you can save a lot of money. I booked through "hotels2thailand. Com" and its prize was almost half. You can also see other websites like TripAdvisor or KLook. Com, but I found first was cheaper than all. Just to make sure you buy the ticket which includes performances and elephant show, you can skip the ticket which includes lunch buffet as there are plenty of lunch options. You can click a lot of photos of plantation and fake animals to remember by.The performance show has different timing so you can pick as per your convenience. The musical performances will take around 45-60mins which include Thai dance, kind of fashion show, Thai Boxing and drum show too.The elephant show also takes 30-45 mins and it include various tricks performed by the elephants. You can also feed the bananas to the elephants. Don't miss the video at the end of the blog to see all the action.

Nice place to visit

This is in Pattya city. The park has many themed landscapes that are ornamental decorated based on different themes and well maintained. It's quiet interesting to roam around. There are many restaurants with both Thai and north Indian buffet served inside the garden. They do have elephant rides, jeep safari to go around the park. Vintage cars were also available for rent to go around the park. N-number of souvenir shoes are found inside selling Thai based decorative items. Food was good at the Indian restaurant. They do have a spectacular cultural show for around 40 minutes at every 1 hour at theatre. Show was quiet interesting and enjoyable which is one of the must do inside through park. The dancer cover all of the stage and we find difficult if we may miss any of the gorgeous dancers performance. The smiling Thai men and women dancers were excellent. Do carry caps, umbrellas, walking shoes, camera. As it's very hot out there.

Must place to visit in Pattaya

If you are going to Pattaya please don't miss Nong Nooch village. It showcases the art and history of Thailand by way of shows. There is a mesmerising elephant show and you can witness a photograph with a live Tiger placing a hand on it which is really astonishing.

Elephant show is the best

I went to this place after noon mainly to see cultural show. There are 11 shows shown. First show time is 2.45 then again at 3.45 and so on. Best show is of elephant where elephant play various games, dance to music, etc. You can take photographs with elephant but it is charged 100 baht. There are various gardens with different themes. I was not able to see all. There are animals in cage like tiger, various birds, etc. You can take photo with Big Tiger or small cub feeding milk. I think it is charged 200 baht which is less compared to other places. It has restaurants, canteens but prices are high.Best show is Elephant show not to be missed.
