When I heard about a dancing plant, I wanted to see it with my own eyes. I wouldn't expect anything too crazy, but if you're in Udon, which doesn't have a ton of tourist sites, it's definitely worth a visit. It's best to go in...More

I saw it with my own eyes, they played music and this plant started moving. I never had seen flowers can move. They have perfum made from orchids and they say it is not an usual thing either, if you want you can buy it.

It is small, only and acre or two (less than a hectare). The orchids were interesting, but at the time we visited, there were few in bloom. We stayed for about an hour, but for the first half of that, there was no one there....More
