    Rose Garden Elephant Show (Now Sampran Riverside)

    by machomikemd Updated Nov 2, 2013

    first of all, the rose garden resort and park is now named Sampran Riverside, it was renamed just this year, 2013 and hence the tip will be Sampran Riverside Elephant Show.

    having been to both Samphran Elephant Ground and Zoo and the Rose Garden, only 2 kilometers apart on the same highway, I sampled both elephant shows and the elephant show in the Samphran Elephant Ground and Zoo is more spectacular than here in Rose Garden as the elephants in the former play football and are into a simulated war scene, while the elephant show in the latter only shows some elephant skills like eating, crushing coconuts, and some tricks. but the elephant ride is cheaper in Rose Garden as it only costs 110 Baht to a 5 minute ride aboard the elephant here than the 15 minute and 300 baht elephant ride at the Elephant Ground and Zoo.

    Thai Village Cultural Show, daily 2 shows: 1:30 and 2:45 pm
    Elephant Demonstration, daily 2:30 and 3:30 pm

    Admission to the show is 300 Baht per person.
    Opens 9:00 am to 5:30 pm everyday

    The rose garden thai village cultural show has two showtimes, at 1:15 pm and 2: 45 pm twice a day and it last for 1 hour and it shows the typical thai village scene like the farmers gathring produce, thai monks blessing the village, a thai wedding, muay thai fighting, assorted thai martial arts and cultural dances like the bamboo dance, which is popular across south east asia as well and the assorted regional thai tribal dance. see my videos of it too.

    The Rose Garden is situated just 2 kilometers away from the Samphran Elephant Ground and Zoo (about a 40 minute drive from bangkok) and most of the day tours with the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market include this stop as a part of the tour. The site comprises 75 acres of perfectly manicured grounds with a lake as a central feature. the resort also offers a number of excellent restaurants alongside cultural shows including handicraft skills, Thai boxing, and sword fighting. For the children’s entertainment there’s also an elephant show, and for adults, the site has its own golf course and a spa.

    Sunday Market and Rose Garden, Thailand

    by bulldogtwo Written Feb 1, 2009

    Yeah, as Curt stated, Sat and Sunday are the best days to go but go early. Also, depending on what you want to do and see it usually is an all day affair, the market is huge and difficult to shop and see the whole place in a day without missing something. Plenty of places to eat and drink, the food is good so don't worry about that, really good!

    As fara as seeing and riding elephants, I'd say the best place for that is the Rose Garden. Located about an hour out of Bangkok, you can sign up for a half day tour, bus ride, entrance fee and lunch is included. The Rose Garden is a nice place to visit, lots of elephants, a Thai cultural show is put on for the guests and you can tour their orchid gardens. All in all not bad for a tour, or you can usually get there on your own and pay as you go, probably cheaper. And yes you have opportunity to ride the elephants.
    HAVE FUN!

    Cultural show at Rose Garden
    2 more images

    A visit to the Rose Garden is usually included when you book a tour to the Floating Market. It's a nice place to spend some time. They have an elephant show and a Thai village cultural show which includes scenes of a thai wedding, the harvest festival, thai boxing, thai dances among others.

    You can also buy some souvenirs there, though they are a bit on the expensive side. You will find the same things at lower prices in Bngkok's markets.

    We visited the Rose Garden after the Floating Markets... The Rose Garden is kind of an 'open air' museum with traditional Thai buildings, a Thai show (with dancing, elephants, sword fighting, kick boxing, a Thai wedding ceremony) and elephant rides...

    We didn't go on an elephant ride here (we did at the River Kwai though) but I did sit with a baby elephant and have my photo taken for 20 baht. We also bought some bananas to feed the elephants for 20 baht...

    Rose Garden

    by adnan1977 Updated Dec 18, 2004

    It is not the plantation of roses. It just the name. Rose garden is located in the west Bangkok and it just 1 km from Samphran Elephant Ground, Crocodile Farm & Zoo.
    In Rose Garden you will see some of the cultural performances such wedding ceremony, Muai thai ( Thai Boxing ), Elephant Show, and etc.

    Rose Garden, A Thai Paradise

    by voyageur2 Written Oct 12, 2004
    A View From Rose Garden

    I visited Rose Garden with my Thai friend Chantana. Here i would like to thank her hospitality and friendship. I believe Thai people is number one because of their traditional values.
    Rose Garden is a magic place. Away from crowded city and busy daily life, it is warm with its flowers, trees and lakes which are impressive.

    Natalie and Nicole

    Spend an afternoon at the Rose Garden. Located about an hour east of Bangkok, it's your typical tourist spot that includes restaurants, a hotel and a lake. It also boastes a live show featuring Thai dancers, kick-boxers,and elephants. Just outside the show is a place where for $1 you (or your children) can ride elephants. For another $1 you can have your picture taken with a baby elephant that just happens to enjoy giving kisses! A Mattison Christmas card picture is born !!!

    This is a landscaped complex about 20 miles from Bangkok. And has something for everyone, a swimming pool, bowling alley, boating and water-skiing to name a few. There is also a Thai Cultural show where you will be shown all manner of local dancing by beautiful girls and boys, some Martial Arts and Elephant displays.
