    Awesome half-day trip
    I’m solo tourist and I travelled there with a male Japanese friend in order to share private car. This place is very interesting and as I’m Thai tourist I recommend you guys go to Nong Nuch Garden for a full day trip. Plus, we can see the elephants show they are so smart and cute. Food lunch, Nong Nuch Garden provide the canteen with so many seats, ice-cream shop, coffee shop and restrooms are also wonderful. This week 3-6 March 2023 Some day I will visit Nong Nuch once again. If you see me as a red short hair woman solo tourist that’s me. 😊💚🐥

    A botanical haven
    Last visited here 9 years ago and it was good back then. It has grown, developed and extended significantly covering a huge area, so definitely plenty to explore and see for a full 5-6 hours. The sky walkways give a different perspective and elevate the views and puts into perspective the size of this Botanical a oasis. The cultural show is definitely worth seeing and while I have ethical reservations about any Elephant shows, it did provide entertainment and a spectacle with these amazing gentle / intelligent giants. (How they are trained / kept and managed remains questionable). This is my only criticism of the whole experience, so should not detract from all the beautiful gardens and statues.

    Amazing Thailand
    What an amazing day out at Nong Nooch Pattaya. Ticket price included a sightseeing bus around garden complex and Thai cultural show and then elephant show straight after. Amazing value for money compared to UK

    Very well designed and maintained place.
    Very well kept and well maintained. We watched the elephant show which was amazing. Elephants and well trained and looked happy and healthy. Take a sky walk to the dinosaur park and bonsai park for best views, avoid the tram. They also have a vintage car museum which is exciting.

    Worth a visit. Get away from Pattaya City
    Grabbed a bolt and travelled out to the Gardens. The range of plants is amazing. Recommend taking the shuttle bus so you don't miss anything. There are Dinosaurs featured throughout the park so will keep any budding Jurassic Park fan enthralled. There are Elephants to ride on, if that's your thing or feed bananas too, you can also try a spot of fishing. Food & drink options aplenty.

    Landscaped park with various animal sculpture
    A large spread of beautifully landscaped park with many animals sculpture (even extinct dinosaurs). Must use kkday to book admission, plus bus and show tickets. Mind the show time so that the bus trip doesn't clash. The dance show and elephant show is after each other so plan your trip. With kkday, the numbered seat for dance show was given front row seat, best. Weather on sunny day very hot to walk so taking the bus is a must. The 30min dance show very entertaining but if you are animal lover, skip the elephant show. Also have exotic car display before exit.

    A good day
    Went to look at this after 16 years, It have expanded greatly. Patting and feeding the elephants was superb. It now has several large concrete stadiums for various shows. 20 gardens including orchid, stone, various flower gardens, cacti and one of life size cast and painted dinosaurs. Multiple cuisine dining places. There is are buses that do the rounds so you can go to the next garden, get off and bord the next bus when you have finished.

    Amazing Botanical Gardens in Pattaya
    It is one of best parks in Thailand, May be in Asia as well. I had to pay 150 baht as entrance fee. This beautiful park a huge museum of different models of motor vehicles. There is a cactus, moss and fern garden that has thousands of different species of other trees as well. This park is very big in land area and there are many gardens, lakes, hills and statues of animals along with dinosaurs. A whole day is better to spend though I spent few hours. There are food court and small kiosks for food inside. There is a souvenir shop at the exit point as well. An amazing place in Pattaya to spend sometime .

    You wish this was your kind of garden :)
    Best place for family day trip. If you are love nature and garden, this is a beautiful place to explore. The landscape is magnificent, they serve good food as well, you can feed the elephants, watch the elephant shows and ride with them. Although, it breaks my heart when they try hit those wonderful creatures because of the tourism. :( Overall, a must stop to visit when you are in Thailand.

    Most beautiful garden
    Nong Nooch Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Its at a distance of 20 kms. from Pattaya. Reach early as it's huge and needs time to explore it. Advance booking is a must here. Booking through Klook is hassle free and cost effective. Must take shuttle bus as the garden is huge. Additionally, you may also walk through skywalk and cover the entire garden from above. Must visit the Car museum, Dinosaur park, Stone Forest, Pottery garden. King-size statues of Dinosaurs and Elephant can please people of all ages. Thai cultural show, and Elephant show were spectacular. Please make sure you have at least half a day to explore and appreciate this magnificent garden to the fullest.

600 acres of visual enjoyment, from tropical plants from the ground up to over your head, magnificent art made by stone pellets on walls. All types of animals real live looking and the amazing dinosaurs raging high into the sky the biggest ones. For me as a visual video storyteller I spent 7 hours emerging in to all the details the amazing staff of the park has and still are creating. There are shows, but I feel sorry for the elephants so I do not participate in those activities, riding ect. There is possibilities to buy food and drinks amongst the many bridge walks and there are eating spots to sit down and buy thai and other food/snacks. An incredible park and I highly reccomend do the walking then you really see the details. And bring sunscreen.. I did not ughhh!

Horror place for animals esp. elephants. In animals shows elephants need to perform unnatural tricks and show behaviour which they do not show in wild. All to entertain humans, families and children. Do NOT visit this place

I had not heard of it until a friend brought it up and off we went. I was not ready for the scale: 500 acres! It is beautiful with a combination of formal gardens and arrangements of interesting plants. I do wish it had more signs to tell you what the plants are. There are thousands of animal statues, many of dinosaurs, and they do tell you what type all of those are. Definitely a lot of dinosaurs I had never heard of or seen in books/movies. There are elephant rides, and elephant show and a Thai Culture show. There is a "sightseeing bus" that goes to areas you can't walk to as well as saves you a long walk to the Orchid area.

As for the title, living in Thailand, I do not take taxis as a rule. They are nothing but problematic. However, the taxi "mafia" seems to be still strong in the Pattaya area and they will not allow pickups at Nong Nooch. There are several locations around Pattaya that Grab will not allow drivers to pick up passengers for the drivers own safety as there have been attacks by taxi drivers. There is a 7-Eleven to the right hand side of the gate as you leave, a short walk away, and they can pick up there. I choose not to support the taxis and their thuggish ways.

I can see why this garden is one of the top ten in the world. Each section of the garden was beautiful. I especially liked the clay pots section but the french gardens were lovely and...well, every section is great. Wasn't keen on the elephant area and riding the elephants. I cannot tell if the elephants are happy. But this garden--with wall art made from pebbles/rocks was cool. The attention to detail throughout this park was wonderful. You could spend several days here. BTW, take the BUS tour through the park if you want to see a lot in a short time.

I feel disgusted having visited this place today and witnessed the elephant cruelty. Do not go to this place because your money supports the abuse of these poor creatures forced to make money for the handlers who don't care about them. A baby elephant chained to its mother could not get up after its leg was tangled. Tourists were horrified but the handler did not care. Absolutely sickening display of elephant abuse. If I knew they were doing this I would not have visited.

I was amazed by the tropical garden when we visited it. It's really huge and like a paradise for me. We saw different types of plants and some life-sized dinosaurs statue. They have a big nursery in house garden for various small plants which you're not allowed to walk inside- as you will ride a bus and the bus will not make a stop inside the nursery. You can also ride the elephant there. The highlight there is the French garden and the life-sized dinosaurs. If you get hungry there's a restaurant inside and some food booth, there's also a souvenir's shop. I highly recommend this place to visit in Pattaya, Thailand

My disappointment from visiting this place is enormous. I expected to see a beautiful botanical garden, but instead, I came across a large number of plastic animals, such as pigs, reindeer, or owls, which were several times larger than their real counterparts. This completely discouraged me from the whole experience, making it artificial and lacking authenticity.

Additionally, the park of artificial dinosaurs surrounded by palm trees was another letdown for me. Instead of a real natural attraction, I found myself in an environment that seemed more kitschy than realistic. This made the entire visit less satisfying than I had anticipated.

The most disheartening surprise was the use of elephants for entertainment. Seeing them forced to perform tricks using metal hooks for discipline was unbearable for me. I believe that this kind of primitive form of entertainment should not have a place in the 21st-century society.

I cannot, in good conscience, recommend these gardens to anyone. The lack of real value, kitschiness, and inappropriate treatment of animals make this place undeserving of positive reviews. My experience fell far below expectations, and the attraction itself seems outdated and inconsistent with today's ethical and cultural standards.

The gardens are huge and well-maintained. Compared to Singapore's Gardens By The Bay, much of it is of the non-flowering kind. There are many statues of animals and dinosaurs in the park giving it a surreal feel. While some have warned about the difficulties of getting Grab, I had no problems getting Grab back to Pattaya.

Bizarre mix of garden, dinosaur statues, thai musical revue, and elephant show. Something to do - but a below average experience
