For the second year in-a-row, Nong Nooch Gardens, located in Jomtien, has been awarded a Gold Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show in UK. The announcement was made at Nong Nooch on Wednesday by Khun Nanta, Chairman of the Board, who was pleased to announce this year’s achievement. Still photos and moving pictures were also shown at the press conference. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was one of many dignitaries who commented on the splendor of the Nong Nooch display which was unlucky not to win the “Best of Show” category. A further celebration is set to take place when the team from Nong Nooch, who were assisted by the Gaseatsart University from Bangkok, returns to Thailand next week.



  • Mr Ian

    I used to like going to Nong Nooch Garden until they charge more for Foreigners to go in there meaning I have to pay more than a Thai person which I think is out of order so they can stick their gold medal where the sun don’t shine

    Well done Nong Nooch Gardens.
    The displays and gardens at BKK airport give Heathrow a good kicking which have ceiling tiles hanging down etc.

    MR.IAN,, i also don’t like it when farangs pay more then thais… MR.IAN theres many places around pattaya that use that rule–it sucks… having said that- i for one say GOOD FOR YOU THAILAND-along with your many faults i am happy for you that you won the show,and the eyes of the world are on you for 5 minutes..now you must work on defending your champianship..

  • Curios

    I have searched the official website of the Chelsea Flower Show, where ALL awards are listed. There is no mention of Nong Nooch winning anything.

    Did someone just make this up?????

    Well done N/Nooch two year’s in a row some feat. By the way if you have a Thai Car M/C licence you get in for the same price as the locals.

    Well lets face it, the average Thai earns a lot less than the average farang so the tiered pricing allows the poorer Thais to afford to visit the local attractions. If you’re not happy with it then go back home and see what it costs to get into a garden similar to Nong Nooch and I can guarantee it will be way more expansive!

  • Rob

    ……. or even expensive!!

    I took two local lovelies with me to Nong Nooch Gardens for a visit in 2008. The place is truly a treasure, and I’ll visit it again, no matter what they charge! It is truly a Thai Gem. I also love the grand Palace in Bangkok. Sometimes, flowers DO Bloom in the Desert. :)
