Asian spice museum opens in ThailandMay 17th, 2012 - 8:32 am ICT by IANS
Bangkok, May 17 (IANS) A museum of Asian spices, founded by a Russian businessman, has opened in Thailand’s Pattaya city, RIA Novosti reported.
The Asian Spicy Garden, which occupies 5,000 square metres, includes a museum of spices and a botanical garden featuring 200 plant species.
It was created by Russian businessman Maxim Kosikhin. It took him two years to carry out the project.
“Many spices originate in southeast Asia, particularly Thailand. Many tourists come across spices in Thai cuisine or cosmetology. I think they will be interested in this issue,” Kosikhin said.
In recent years, Pattaya has attracted many Russian tourists. The resort runs five Russian-language TV channels and two radio stations.
