Rose Garden, Bangkok
Located 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the city of Bangkok, amidst the rural scenery along the Nakhon Chaisri River, is The Rose Garden Cultural centre.
The Rose Garden offers a numerous reasons to escape the city of Bangkok for half a day with the most attractive being the typical Thai Village. Here, you will see local Thai villagers creating traditional village handicrafts in their natural environment. All sorts of skills are on display including; silk-weaving, pottery-making, umbrella-painting, Khon mask masking, mat weaving, doll making, fruit carving, garland-making, rice-pounding and even the delicate crafting of silver and laquerware.
There are also impressive displays of authentic Thai period costumes, a chance to see busy, typical Thai market, different styles of Thai Houses (from both the North to South regions of Thailand) and an intriguing display of Thai antiques from various parts of the country. The Thai village offers a real potpourri of different Thai cultural activities that also include Muay Thai boxing, sword fighting, Thai dances, elephants at work and much, much more.
Go to Rose garden, it is about 100 kilometers from Bangkok and it is a trip sold more or less in any agency in Bangkok.
This is the tour where you are also brought to a floating market, ofcourse that is not the sunday Bangkok one, but if you visit Bangkok during the week days, it can become a good alternative.
On a fancy outing to lunch,
in the luxurious shopping center Gaysorn Plaza,
I was seduced by the sensual voice of Pino
singing in the background.
Sounding just like Yves Montand
He had started with the French song
“La Vie en Rose”.
Pino then changed his tune
into the well known “Carrusso”
sung by Pavarotti.
Singing so beautifully in English, Spanish, Italian, and French,
with piano accompanying his perfectly in tuned, harmonic voice,
I felt that I was discovering the perfect man
to contract for a special romantic event,
a wedding, or a corporate event.
So if any events coordinators out there,
happen to read this post,
or you are planning a special occasion,
definitely look into auditioning Pino
as an option.
I am positive his graceful voice won’t let down.
