The Bees Knees

In Thailand we have crocodile and snake farms, monkey schools, and butterfly parks for tourists, not to mention regular zoos and a night safari, so it should come as no surprise that there are bee farms here as a type of attraction, too. I've never been to one, but according to the information posted on the back of the taxi driver's seat, the Highland Bee Farm in Chonburi is "the place to witness bees in action". It also mentions on the laminated flyer that the farm sells royal jelly, bee pollen, and organic honey. I wonder if the driver gets a kickback for advertising this farm in his cab and for bringing customers there. I truly hope he makes some extra cash on the side, or at the very least, gets some free honey.
