Usawadee Rose Garden
Usawadee Rose Garden is a 64-hectare complex resort 200 kilometres away from Bangkok, located on Mu 3, Tambon Suan Phueng, Amphoe Suan Phueng, Ratchaburi. This piece of land is truly a highland amid the nature of the province; with the surrounding mountains close to Thailand-Myanmar border and Chi River flowing through, its climate, soothing foggy scenery, flora and fauna, and those of the northern region of Thailand are just alike.Although Suan Phueang area is very famous for its abundant home-away-from-home resorts, Usawadee Rose Garden stands out for its beauty and the comfortable, private feeling it gives. Many TV series producers choose this garden as a filming location, with its highlight-the enchanting garden which has a wide range of rose species, both domestic and imported, and many other types of flowers-boasting its spectacle in winter. One kilometre away from the rose garden is the waterfall which flows all year round from Pha Daeng Waterfall on Khao Krachoem (Mountain Krachoem) originating from the woods of the neighbouring country; the waterfall welcomes all visitors in any seasons.Another must here is temporary fish nourishing, which gains much popularity among fish lovers. Fish are brought and fed at the cascade ponds of the resort and provided with water from the waterfall. As the water flows from pond to pond by its different heights, the fish are kept in the always-fresh environment and the natural minerals from soils. This Japanese method for feeding fish emphasizing the freshness of water and the soil help maintaining the sturdiness of the fish compared to those kept in concrete fish ponds, particularly for fancy carps. The fish are taken from the ponds yearly for growth observation and the ponds’ maintenance.Usawasdee Rose Garden opens everyday 8.00-17.00hrs.
