If you like elephants and a really beautiful garden/park setting do book at least a half day trip there. It is only 30 minutes by coach from central Pattaya. There are very well organised 'performing elephants' shows several times each day. There are a multitude of restaurants and cafes on site. Nong Nooch is ideal for families. For me the most striking thing about this attraction is the exquisite tropical paradise setting. The flowers and plants are wonders to behold.

I had no idea what the attraction entailed before arriving, and was just expecting some interesting gardens, but there is far more to the place then this.
There is a thai dance show and an elephant show. This split option within the group, it was an entertaining show (painting, cycling and dart throwing animals), but not sure how good it is for the elephants. During the show also be prepared to be harangued by kids selling bananas for the elephants.
This though is where the place gets weird, if you look at the map there is a "flamenco paradise", this is a lawn with hundreds of plastic birds, along a similar line the ant hill is a 4 story metal structure with giant plastic ants. There is also literally 500 plastic animals of every breed. For some reason it reminded me of Portmeirion and "the prisoner". Worth a visit and is a full days out.

This is an outstanding garden. Winners at Kew Gardens, and a highly established venue for visitors and residents alike. There is plenty to do and see and the kids will have a great time too. Good access, plenty of parking - great venue.

Suppose you are sleeping and all of a sudden you open in your eyes here, you will feel am I dreaming. I don't know how the architect had imagined this place but possibly this was the best place in Pattaya to visit.

Lovely Gardens!!! You can see the cultural show and elephants...
Shop and get a photo clicked with a Tiger...and lots//
Ok its dirt cheap too..

A must see...

A must visit place in when you are in Pattaya.
If you want to see some more of Nong Nuch and the surrondings, take the guided bus tour.
Another thing you must not miss is the elephant show. It is the best elephant show in Thailand.
