Thailand is home to more than 1,200 native orchid species and over the last century it has become the leading exporter of cultivated tropical orchids in the world. Native and hybrid orchids alike have become synonymous with the nation. During daylight hours, visitors can enjoy an authentic Thai vibe as there are traditional Thai dance performances, film screenings, tours of the garden and orchid care demonstrations. The Orchid Evening activities will also make sure that the fun will continue after the sun has set. nybg.org
