Click on map to enlarge.

Do you know that tulips from the Netherlands are grown in the province of Nonthaburi? If you happen to be in Bangkok during weekends between 24th. December 2010 and 27th. February 2011 you should not miss visiting this special farm, known as “Suan Tulip Non” on Chengwattana Soi 28, just before the Central Plaza Changwattana. This year, it opens from 10am till 5.30pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.

The overall environment in the farm has been adjusted for the tulip season with new plants, fountains and a small garden being added. With only a 20 THB entrance fee, you’ll be able to feast on the beauty and magnificent tulips and other cold-climate European flowers. The Central Plaza Chang Wattana provides parking space for visitors to the farm.

For your information, U&V Inter-Trade Co., Ltd has started to grow and nurture these beautiful tulips since 2007. The farm has grown over 18 species of tulips and 10 other cold climate flowers. The Red Gavota tulip, which is also grown in the farm has been selected as one of the world top 20 most fascinating tulip flowers by the World Tulips Lover Association.

Let’s not miss this once a year chance and have it treasured in our memory forever.

Hi Lynn,

My name is michael and i have seen your blog and what also looks like your lovely Tulip Farm. I am very much hoping you can help me with something, My girlfriend who is Thai graduates next month on 23rd Feb. I will be coming to stay with her for a few days before, her favourite flower in the world is the Tulip and i thought it would be a really nice surprise to take her for a visit before her Graduation. Another thing i was wondering if it is possible to purchase Tulips whilst we are there as i would love to give her some on the day of her graduation with all her friends. My email is if you could email me with some information i would appreciate your help so very much. I myself live in Rayong and have done for the last 3 years working in Scuba Diving, so this would be a nice break for the two of us to come and visit you, thank you in advance. Michael
