Rose Garden now known as Sampran Riverside is a recreational property where visitors can experience authentic Thai way of life and learn about local traditions and culture. It has been considered as one of Bangkok’s favorite tourist attractions because of their effort to preserve Thailand’s natural, historical and cultural heritages by engaging the participation of the local community. It was established in 1962 when one family cultivated roses to supply them to Bangkok flower markets and their garden of blossoming roses attracted visitors who then referred to the place as ‘Suan Sampran’ or ‘the Rose Garden’. Since then, Rose Garden or Sampran Riverside has grown gradually to a huge riverside property that is more like a community rather than recreational resort.
Today the facility includes a 4 star hotel with 160 rooms, 6 antique Thai houses around a serene lake, Arusaya Spa, restaurants, meetings rooms, a Organic Farm, a Weekend Farmer’s Market and the unique Thai Village Cultural Centre, a popular tourist attraction for over 40 years now.
Whether it is a desire for an eco-cultural tour or simply to relax and rejuvenate, Sampran Riverside provides a perfect city break for a one day trip near Bangkok. Packages going here are normally part of a whole day tour which includes visit to Samphran Zoo.
