The Rose Garden

Mac and Jib took us out on Sunday to the Rose Garden. It comprises a huge hotel and several conference facilities situated near the river; numerous restaurants, several huge gardens, an enormous lake and show cases a traditional Thai Village with artisans at work.

This was an excellent opportunity to watch experts plant rice, paint umbrellas, carve vegetables to decorate banquet tables etc. and weave figures with grasses (similar to NZ flaxes).

Mac and Lynne wait while the General Manager organises our tickets for the day, courtesy of Jib’s dad. He is the Rose Garden’s Number 1 customer since he runs so many of his courses here.
