visiting this orchid farm was a twist of fate and made up one of my favorite days in thailand. some friends and i rented motor bikes and hit off for the country side in search of orchids, waterfalls, and rice fields. the fast paced and hectic traffic ended up seperating me from the others, so i rode for about 30 kilometers before i stopped at this orchid farm to figure out if i was on the right track. with the help of wifi, i was reunited with my friends and was able to explore this beautiful orchid farm. i was surprised to see that all the orchids were grown by aeration because of the naturally humid and warm climate.
