Attraction Details :
Khao Hin Son Development Study Center focuses on novel agricultural developments facilitated by the cooperation of public and private sectors. The large plot of land was once barren, but with the development of water sources, forest conditions, land and animal husbandry, the area has been completely transformed. Now the area serves as a model and an example for development for other areas. Experiments in agriculture as well as demonstration plots are available to visitors and farmers looking to learn.
Other projects cover the fields of land development, livestock, fishery and herbs. A botanical garden, the Eastern Botanical Garden, is an interesting location for the study and research of beneficial plants and herbs. Inside the main building, there is an exhibit and a demonstration plot on how to cultivate herbs.
The Khao Hin Son Royal Development Study Center is located near the Km. 51-52 on Highway No. 304, 17 kilometers from Phanom Sarakham.
