Where would you rather be? Just received the following press release via the folk at Tell Tale Travel.
This winter, why not shut your shed and visit Thailand in Bloom instead?
This November sees the grand opening of the most beautiful international horticultural show ever staged in Thailand. Called 'Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2006', this vast expo is being built in honour of the King of Thailand and features 2.5 million plants and flowers, a pavilion displaying over 50,000 orchids and 30 international show gardens from countries such
as China and Japan.
Tell Tale Travel, the authentic travel specialists, has created a unique two-week private tour called Thailand in Bloom' to help garden-lovers get the most out of this memorable event. Instead of getting lost in the crowds or rushed around in a tour group, visitors can enjoy this spectacular show in the company of knowledgeable local plant-lovers who will share their enthusiasm - and the odd gardening tip no doubt! You can choose from orchid-lovers to fern-fanatics to be your guides and make sure you have plenty of tales to tell when you get home.
The itinerary also includes visits to other horticultural hot spots like a mountainside wildlife sanctuary and a lush, hillside eco-village as well as orchid farms, botanical gardens and charming private gardens. There is even time to relax and enjoy an informal Thai cookery lesson - as with all Tell Tale Travel trips, everything is tailor-made.
