THE MINI ORCHID GARDEN AT THE R&R


Another attraction for visitors at the R&R (Rest and Recuperate) area was the orchid garden. This was like a mini paradise for orchid lovers where hundreds of Thai orchids were put on display. There was a spectrum of colours of orchid hybrids beyond imagination.





















































Thailand is the world's second largest orchids exporter after Netherlands. This has been made possible not only by the climate, but also by the agriculture technology they have.

I always think of trying to grow my own orchids at home but then the plants require extra tender loving care so guess I need to wait until I retire.
