Around the World in 80 Gardens Episode 10: South-East Asia

Since the nineteenth century, Western gardeners have harboured a stereotype image of the perfect exotic garden and Monty visits the pre-eminent of these - the mysterious Jim Thompson's Garden in Bangkok. He then pushes on to Singapore, 'a City in a Garden', before finally touching down in the lush and sensuous island of Bali, where what he learns about South-East Asian gardens surprises him.

Around the World in 80 Gardens is a television series of 10 episodes in which British gardener and broadcaster Monty Don visited 80 of the world's most celebrated gardens. The series was filmed over a period of 18 months and was first broadcast on BBC Two.
A book based on the series was also published.
