Opened in 1993, this garden was created as a center for botanical research and for visitors who wanted to learn about plants and flowers from Thailand. Believe me, QSBG enormous.

Complete with an artificial waterfall powered electrically, this exhibition offers many of the plants that thrive in the rainforest – gingers, anthuriums, ferns, crickets, impatiens, begonias and other species. There are a number of temperature-controlled greenhouse on the hill, each with a different group or categoryPlants and flowers. One of the greenhouses is an amazing collection of begonias, another features mostly plants and herbs from Thailand. The unusual and exotic plant that I met there was the Bat Plant (Tacca chantrieri), which is native to Southeast Asia. The problem greenhouse gas with a series of eclectic water lilies and lotus flowers was very impressive.
