A friend, Ton, was in Pattaya to celebrate his birthday, and as a gift I took him to Nong Nooch to see the Garden and Culture Show. We arrived about 10AM but I’d forgot about it being a Saturday and the place was well packed. – buses of tourist already there. We went and got some drinks and at 10:30 went to the 10:45 Culture show, by that time the bleachers were filled and only a place high and in the back was available. Oh well – next time down front. I’m very glad I always carry the 200 mm lens on the camera – regular camera’s would take such tiny photos you would have difficulty seeing what was going on. I did have to shoot about ISO 5000+ so there is a lot of grain in the shots but I think you can still see with decent clarity what the show was like – great show.
After this culture segment we then had to go to the elephant circus area – but being the last to leave the stage area we were also the last to get seating at the elephant show – way in the back again – not any decent views for photos, so I didn’t take any – oh well – next time. Now I know how to get around now. Enjoy the show!
