Pansook Food and Farm is a combination of an urban farm, a souvenir and Thai delicacies outlet and a steak restaurant. It’s a bit like an OTOP, handicraft store and Thai speciality food outlet all wrapped into one. Instead of the usual bottle of wine, perhaps a bottle of mangosteen fruit wine as the ‘red’ for a birthday present. Thai delicacies include fish sausages and every form of chilli known to man. There’s even a chilli sampling station if you are brave enough to try on the tongue! Thai desserts you will not see anywhere else could be a challenge as most labels are only in the Thai language.
For ladies, there are fashion items, handcrafted and unique and for kids the most colourful selection of lollipops and other sweet tempters. Pansook Food and Farm, the ‘urban farm’ is quaint, it’s not huge, but you can take a horse-drawn buggy ride as an alternative to a gentle stroll through the carefully maintained and planned gardens. Animals to get the kids excited include sheep to bottle feed, rabbits, ducks and Shetland ponies to ride. Photographic opportunities are a-plenty among the scarecrows, hay bales or Western-styled outbuildings. If your visit coincides with mealtime, eating on-site would be a great finale to the day.
PANSOOK FOOD AND FARM IS LOCATED ABOUT 10 KILOMETERS NORTH OF CHA AM ON THE LEFT HEADING TOWARDS BANGKOK.
It’s the furthest ‘entertainment Alley’ destination away from Cha-Am. It is open every day from 8.00 AM to 9.30 PM. The entrance fee is 50 THB adults, 30 THB children. It is a great combination for families with young children, romantic couples and souvenir hunters. The entry sign has already described balloon rides.
