“Promotional tour with TAT (Tourism Authority of Thailand)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

It is an interesting experience if you are into local fruits and orchids. Durian, grapes, lamjai, mangosteen, papaya, rambutan, dragon fruit, banana, star fruit and mangoes are just a few examples. All the fruit are delicious, sweet and juicy.
Staff were friendly and you get shuttled around the grounds for free to see the different fruit orchards. Unfortunately a Thai only speaking guide.
There are local bee hives with honey products on sale too.

You can feast on free fruit and a particular fruit that is called Durian. This fruit is really delicious but an acquired taste. It is sweet and creamy but very smelly. Most hotels and guest houses forbid this fruit to be brought onto the premises because of it's pungent smell. It is not a cheap fruit but readily available in season. Beware that this fruit is very high in cholesterol and if you consume too much at one time, there could be side effects.
Durian is also not be eaten and washed down with alcohol as I believe there are also dangerous side effects.

There is also a dining area where som tum (spicy-hot green papaya) salad is served and quite delicious. Very popular dish with the Thai people.
If you do order a dish, make sure to ask for spicy (hot), non spicy or a little bit spicy. It usually gets graded by how many chilies you want mixed in the salad...1..2..3..4.
Beware!

At the time of my visit entrance fee for Thais were THB250 per person and THB400 for foreigners.
There are some chalets for rent at THB1800 per night.

This is the official website but in Thai only.

Overall, a nice and pleasant experience for individuals and families.
Support the local industry please.

“For Durian lovers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

We visited Suphattra land , a huge fruit garden and orchid garden ,on our way to Pattaya .Located about 18 kms from Rayong.
You can sample many kind of Thai fruits ,they told us that the best time to visit is between May through July.
The harvester told us that nowadays the fruit trees were confused because anomalies created by the global warming.Usually they can predict when the fruits will ripe , nowadays cant.
No locals visited here as we observed , almost all are abroad tourists.
Admission fee is 650 Baht
We ride an open tram bus and took a tour of the gardens, rubber and fruit plantations here ,after maybe 30 minutes , we arrived to a shelter , where we sampled fruits , many of us ate durians, pineapples, mangoes mangosteen, rambutans and many more.
Inside ,there was a small store selling dried fruits , candies ,and souvenirs.
Worth a visit !

“local fruits”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

This place is mainly developed to serve tourist, I live near by and only made one visit but one visit was more than enough. It has small fruite shop at the entrance, i often visit there to buy honey and local fruites, cheaper than market. Its restaurant has excellent menu and well priced. Probably best restaurant in this area. TRY their western style salad. Their lettuce is from own farm, very fresh.

“Must see if you are in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

This place was what i wanted to see but to my suprise it was better than i expected.
We had our own driver and bus which we toured the farm and fields.
Along the way the driver would stop and pick out some fresh fruits for us to eat. this is a great experience.
After maybe 30 mins we get to a open area with shelter where we had a buffett fruit.
We stuffed ourselves before moving over to the Durians found outside the shelter. maybe because of the smell lol
This was my first taste of Durian and it was actually very nice. you should try it.
There is a sink there to wash your hands and a small shop to buy stuff.
When we was ready to leave we jumped back on the bus and he took us to another shelter through the farm and had fruit and veg snack.
Gave us time to wash and freshen up before taking us to the main entrance. To my suprise he drove past the main entrance and over the road to more fields and a bee farm to taste honey.
When we got back the tour was over.
It was about 3 hours in total and could have been longer if you ate more.
It was totally enjoyable and recommend this for everyone. young and old.

cost £8 entrance. seems a lot at first like we felt but at the end. it was worth every penny.
