The Horticultural Science Society Of Thailand in cooperation with state and private sector organizations, with support of the Tourism Authority of Thailand Nakhon Ratchasima office, will be jointly organizing the Wang Nam Keow Flora Fantasia flower festival during December 20, 2010 – February 28, 2011.
The Wang Nam Keow district of Nakhon Ratchasima is known for its breathtaking natural beauty and provides the perfect setting for the Wang Nam Keow Flora Fantasia flower festival. This tapestry of floral art, the vertical gardens and floral labyrinth created from more than 200,000 potted plants and flower beds covers an area of 60 rai (9.6 hectares) and is set against the picturesque backdrop of a midst shrouded-valley. Top artists will also be taking part in the event and will be presenting floral works of art as impressive as the ones created with a paint brush. Additionally, a scenic vantage point provides the perfect spot for photography.
Wang Nam Keow is a particularly popular destination during these three months of Thailand’s cool season, especially with individuals and families who are health-conscious. It is the perfect place to be outdoors enjoying the sunshine, cloudless blue skies and fresh air.
Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Thai Red Cross Society for the construction of a new blood bank.
