Nong Nooch Tropical Garden outside Pattaya is offering free admission to people from nine Upper Northeast provinces and 10 districts of Bangkok throughout October and will greet them with six new dinosaurs.
Park Director Kampol Tansajja said Monday said the offer dovetails with the government’s flagging “We Travel Together” campaign to get Thais to travel to other provinces.
He said free entrance to the country’s pre-eminent private garden would provide additional inducement for northerners to come to the East.
Kampol said the park also has introduced six new dinosaur statues, including Tyrannosaurus Rex, Saurophaganax, Acrocanthosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus and Spinosaurus.
The nine provinces to get the deal are Khon Kaen, Kalasin, Mukdahan, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Bueng Kan, Nong Khai, Udon Thani, Nong Bua Lam Phu.
The 10 Bangkok districts are Minburi, Kannayao, Khlong Sam Wa, Nong Chok, Lat Krabang, Taling Chan, Thaweewattana, Phasi Charoen, Bang Khae and Nong Khaem. Sorry Sukhumvit peoples.
