Point of Interest Details

In Thailand, oranges are not merely ‘comfort fruits’ to eat fresh or juice to drink. They are central ingredients of Thai culinary heritage, used for a vast variety of meat, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes. Oranges are available in Thailand all year round and can be purchased at any market. The oranges fresh from the branches (with leaves) are the best choice.Thanaton Orange is a place worth visiting for a scenic break before you reach the town of Thaton. The vehicle tour takes you through rows of orange, banana and coffee trees and once you reach the top of a small hill you can enjoy the spectacular panoramic vista to the area. In our interview you can watch the a short tour of the orchard and some commentary from one of the team's members.

Practical tips: The fee for the vehicle ride is 40 Baht, there is a small cafe and you can buy various variety of oranges and other foodstuff at the orchard’s cafe.
