The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has planned to develop a new tourist attraction in the northeastern province of Khon Kaen where a large number of wild orchids burst into bloom.
More than 4,000 wild orchids called Rhynchostylis gigantean grow naturally in the Wat Pa Manchakhiri.
The director of TAT`s northeastern office, Mrs. Nittaya Ouampittaya said the site found if well promoted could draw tourists to the northeastern region similar to the popular Siam Tulip field in Chaiyaphum and the famous Mexican Sunflower field in Mae Hon Son.
Mrs. Nittaya said TAT had launched a public relation campaign for tourists and encouraged local people to preserve the environment to keep the wild orchid in the area.
The annual wild orchid festival is planned to be held in January, she added.(TNA)
