Reflections of Thailand - Sala Rim Nam: House by the River
Reflections of Thailand - Sala Rim Nam: House by the River
Designer: James Clarke (Elevations Exhibition Design Ltd) / Sponsors: Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), EVA Airways Contractors Elevations Exhibition Design Ltd, About Plants Europe Ltd

Bangkok is encircled by a labyrinth of klongs (canals) alive with communities afloat the Chao Phraya River. The klongs are a tranquil part of the city, a place to experience traditional, modest and contented ways of Thai life. They are a playground for children, home to bustling floating markets and a peaceful place to rest in waterfront salas (outdoor living spaces). This garden represents a typical Bangkok riverside home. The planting surrounding the sala is an inspiring blend of regional plants, towering tropical trees to provide welcome shade, aromatic herbs grown for home cooking and scented flowers to add character and colour. Song birds swing in cages and bamboo fishing equipment can be seen drying in the sun after a day's fishing. Sala Rim Nam: House by the River is a place to reflect and relax. Thai people are creative, respect nature and nurture their land; welcome to a special garden that represents their unique way of life.
