The annual garden show is held between Christmas and New Year, and attracts huge crowds of visitors from far and wide. Previously, its been located at the Chiang Mai Beach (Pattaya Noi) area but the narrow roads leading in and out created traffic mayhem.
The 2009 Garden Show was at a new venue, downstream of the Kok River bridge (north side) on the back road to the airport – much easier access!
The downside is the location is not as scenic as the previous venue, and there is a comparative lack of big trees providing shade for plants and visitors alike. However, time will take care of that, and future events will be bigger and better a a consequence of the relocation.
