1 – Nong Noch Tropical Botanical Garden, Pattaya, Thailand
Spread over 500 acres, this cluster of gardens is both a natural and human marvel. One of the most beautiful sites in South East Asia, the Nong Nooch Garden is home to thousands of plant species.
From the breathtaking callback to France’s Versailles gardens to the marble statues sprinkled across the Italian Garden, and the magnificent burst of colors and sculptures on the Butterfly Hill and Bromeliad Display Garden, the site pays homage to cultures all across the world.
In addition, the tourists can take the sky walk, a three kilometer bridge that provides them with a bird’s eye view of many of the gardens below. There’s a waterfall, and an innovative topiary garden as well. And if you’re into pottery, there’s a whole section dedicated to clay art with more than a hundred thousand pots fashioned into all kinds of shapes and forms.
