What You Can Expect
The Rose Garden offers a numerous reasons to escape the city of Bangkok for half a day with the most attractive being the typical Thai Village. Here, you will see local Thai villagers creating traditional village handicrafts in their natural environment. All sorts of skills are on display including; silk-weaving, pottery-making, umbrella-painting, Khon mask masking, mat weaving, doll making, fruit carving, garland-making, rice-pounding and even the delicate crafting of silver and laquerware.
There are also impressive displays of authentic Thai period costumes, a chance to see busy, typical Thai market, different styles of Thai Houses (from both the North to South regions of Thailand) and an intriguing display of Thai antiques from various parts of the country.
The Thai village offers a real potpourri of different Thai cultural activities that also include Muay Thai boxing, sword fighting, Thai dances and elephants at work.
Relaxing tour -- another couple had cancelled so we had a private tour. Love the elephants and great shops at the Rose Garden!
Worthwile doing if this is the only cultural show you intend to do whilst you are in Bangkok. Beautiful gardens.
amazing atmosphere, elephants are so cute. take your time to discover the grounds.
This is One of the REALLY MUST DO trips when visiting Bangkok. EVERY PART of the experience was most acceptable, The GUIDES and Agents were all there to give the trip a "personal" touch. This was much appreciated.Leslie Armstrong

We were advised upon booking that due to the flooding the elephant had not yet returned to the village. We hoped maybe it may return during the ten days before we actually went, but it had not. However the elephant was not the only reason to visit the village, and their are plenty more things to do and see. The rose gardens are beautiful and pleasant to walk around, so close to the river. The show was quite good. It was inside. They gave us clothes as we entered which were chilled and moistened with lemon water - keep you cool and keep off the mossies. Whilst walking around the village you can see how silk is made from the worms to the weaving of the cloth, you can purchase items from the shop, you can watch umbrella/parasol painting, hear tradtional music, have your photo with ladies in tradtional costume or with an albino reticulated python. You must tip if you take a photo, the ladies in costume happily took 10Baht per photo, the snake handler had a card pinned to him (50Baht) but we took 5/6 photos for that. Great tour as a general overview of Thai life and culture.
