When the RHS asked if I would like to lecture on the Voyages of Discovery aboard the MV Voyager sailing from Bangkok to Mumbai I immediately said, ‘Yes Please’. This being the first cruise in partnership with RHS Garden Holidays.
I have always wanted to visit Thailand and India and see the Botanic Gardens and the new Garden by the Bay in Singapore. So this was a chance not to be missed despite the fact that I am seasick even when the boat is in harbour!
In Bangkok we visited the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew where we were surrounded by the Tamarind Tree, Tamarindus indica, which were not only lining the streets but were also trained and pruned.
