The Rose Garden is a destination by itself. The complex compose of the Thai Village, a local market for people in the community, and a resort hotel make the visit a must. For the tourist, the cultural show at the Thai Village and the available of elephant ride are unique. For the Bangkok residence, the beautiful landscape, well manicured lawn... More

First things first - getting there… After browsing many different websites with conflicting directions we decided to jump on the BTS to Bang Wa and get a taxi. One vital piece of information that would have really helped us, and our confused taxi driver, is that the gardens have been renamed. Make sure you ask for Sampran Riverside http://www.sampranriverside.com/ They... More

We had a great lunch on the boat. Banana for the baby elephant. You could ride, we didnt. Was great to watch though. Afterwards we watched Muy thay which was funny to watch, more of a show than real boxing. A wedding with great dancing. stunning! Must see!!

Everything about this show is brilliant - well perhaps the xylophone band was a little bit off key! Held in an air conditioned auditorium.

This perhaps was the most interesting, educational rich and entertaining tour we took during our visit in Thailand. For someone not familiar with Thai culture, it is a quick way to get an introduction. The grounds are beuatifully maitained. The performance is engaging and hold the interest of all ages. The indoor stage area was very comfortable with plenty of... More

Sampran Riverside was great to walk through, beautiful picturesque flora that seems to be a natural part off Thai experience. The Thai Village Cultural Show was fun and entertaining, the "players" even interacted with the audience near the end of the show, having those willing join them in one the Thai dances! Must see!

Good part of day, after visiting floating markets. Very good buffet lunch and time to relax whilst looking over pond. Show was very entertaining and while staged was a great portrayal of traditions such as Thai kick boxing, sword fighting and weddings. This was followed by a brief elephant show, short but entertaining. Opportunity to ride elephant and have photos... More

We had lunch there which was not too bad, and then saw an elephant show afterwards. They had the cutest baby elephant which was trained very well. This was more like a cultural center than a rose garden, but the landscaping was nice.
