In 1954 Mr.Pisit and Mrs. Nongnooch Tansacha bought 1500 rais (about 600 acres) of rolling hills and valleys at kilometre marker 163 on Sukhumvit road in Chonburi province. The newly purchased land was expected to become a fruit plantation. But as fate may have it, Mrs. Nongnooch during a trip abroad, was inspired by the beauties of many world-renowned gardens and decided to turn it into a tropical garden of ornamental flowers and plants.

 

Opened to the public in 1980 , the garden was named Suan Nong Nooch  in honour of Mrs. Nongnooch, as the word Suan means garden. Besides continuing her life's work of the garden, Mrs. Noongnooch spends her time between Bangkok and the orchard in Chiang-rai as well as Nong Nooch camping resort in Prachinburi province, which made its debut in 2001. In order to maintain the gardens, management was than handed over to her son, Mr. Kampon Tansacha.

 

From such humble beginnings, now more than 2,000 visitors, VIP guests, schools, local residents of Thailand, expatriate's and tourists from around the world visit Nong Nooch Garden daily. Nong Nooch is world renowned for its impressive Elephant and Thai Cultural Shows, along with what is largely considered the biggest and most beautiful botanical garden in Southeast Asia.

The garden is constantly developing and evolving, creating new interests for our loyal members and returning guests. Nong Nooch garden is also dedicated to education, preservation and research as well as the conservation of the worlds LARGEST palm collection, the largest variety of Orchids in Thailand and other tropical flora and fauna.
