Nakhon Ratchasima (also known as Korat) is the largest province in Thailand. It is a poor and rural condition, but it is alive with natural beauty and hits a romantic chord in the hearts of many Thais.

These kinds of flowers are used for decorative purposes, often utilized by government initiatives at festivals and cultural events to embellish floats and religious icons. This government-run flower garden is also used by educational institutions for Botanical Research and studying orchids and flower cultivation. There are a huge range of flowers growing in this garden, ranging from orchids, to gerbera, lilies, roses, chrysanthemums, iris, poppies and sunflowers.

Lots of the flowers in this garden are grown in containers, making for convenient transportation to events in which they are turned into beautiful works of art by local florists and fanatics in Nakhon Ratchasima and surrounding areas.

Tourists can also buy most of the potted flowers to take home with them. The flower gardens also boast a tea and coffee place plus a restaurant is also open at busier periods of the year.
