The Rose Garden Thai Village is often associated with Bangkok but is in fact located outside the capital, in Nakhon Pathom Province. This charming old city is found 50 kilometres west of Bangkok and takes around one hour to get there, depending on the traffic. The most popular attraction at The Rose Garden is a theatrical performance of traditional Thai folk dancing, Thai boxing, sword fighting, plus an elephant show, but there is quite a lot more to explore to keep you busy for a couple of hours.
The property is immense, with traditional attractions such as a handicraft market and a fun outdoor local food court where you can try some authentic local specialties. They even have a lovely mini floating market under the shade of grand old trees – it’s a great photo opportunity if you can’t make it to the Damnoen Saduak or Amphawa floating markets. For those who want to try it, you can also have a short stroll around the garden on the back of a massive elephant.
The Rose Garden is also very popular for traditional Thai weddings with seven old wooden Thai Houses built on stilts all around a lake where families and friends gather to host some amazing wedding ceremonies. Furthermore, the park also include a 160-room riverside hotel, several restaurants with river views and banquet rooms where families and friends usually stay for the night. The Rose Garden is often combined with a visit to the famous Damnoen Saduak floating market located nearby, but it can also be part of a full day of exploration around Nakhon Pathom when combined with the many surprising landmarks in the area.
