Mae Fah Luang Garden. a beautiful floral park The flower garden was designed according to the wish of Princess Mother (the mother of King Rama 9). Entrance for 90 THB (discount for seniors) A delight, my earlier study of the reviews and other inputs proved me right, it had a rightful place on my bucket list, I am keen on floriculture, God's bounty to us. It compares favourably with the gardens in Europe and Dubai, though smaller. Hire of a Golf cart for seniors is recommended, as there are inclines.

The original must go destination in Chiang Rai. The small restaurant offers good cheap northern Lanna food. The museum about the Princess Mother and the Mahidol family is always inspiring but its exactly the same as 10 years ago so needs an upgrade. I enjoyed my visit to the Doi Tung Villa as we took time to listen to the audio guide and really look around.
The local market on the way to the car park offers lots of local products, fruits, vegetables from the local hill tribe villagers.
One big recommendation from me is to drive down from Doi Tung to Mae Sai past the Arboretum on route 1149, going through Pha Hee village. The route is one of the most beautiful on the Thai-Myanmar border, driving past a Burmese border outpost & seeing Myanmar's mountains of Shan State.

We enjoyed the gardens, the palace was O.K. but was a bit of overkill on the propaganda, but the tree tops walk was fantastic. The zip line was a great finish even for us as 60yr olds :)

The garden itself is located a little over an hour north of Chiang Rai. Most of the drive is on highway 1, with some steep windy roads to get you up into the garden. As I approached the garden area I was immediately put off by the crowd of people, but really once inside, the garden area is large enough to absorb the masses without feeling too crowded. At the ticket booth, they offer single event tickets, or pay one price for all - the garden, the arboretum (9 km distant) the villas, the treetop walk, and hall of inspiration. I only visited the garden itself. Floral displays were truly impressive, a massive layout. The orchid house was spectacular. Not a grand variety of orchids overall, but the largest collection of lady slippers I've seen in one place. Clean toilets, always a bonus, and numerous snack sellers. I peeked my head into the hill tribe handicraft area and turned right back around, but maybe it's just me or that I've seen similar crafts throughout the north. Only negative I can point to is the distance from the entry to where I had to park - over 10 minutes walk.

Before you visit the Royal Villa and Gardens, on the left is the market. Pretty interesting although products are more or less the same in each stall. Good to have a walk. I love the tea and pickle stall. You get to sample all sorts of pickles and dried fruits.

It's hard to appreciate the splendor of this setting without framing it in its historical context, without seeing the metamorphosis it has brought to the region. This is a standard for rehabilitation worldwide, but moreover it is a great excursion that offers a diverse set of activities. The Royal Villa can be visited and there is a treetop walk as well as coffee museum and so much more. There are restaurants as well. You could spend an hour here or 3 days in and around. That said, if it rains do the Opium museum first and return here after clouds have passed.

All three of these attractions are worth seeing here. You might be tempted to skip the Hall of Inspiration but that was the highlight for me. It answers questions you might have about the Royal Pavilion and Gardens but also explains the royal project and how it has transformed this part of Thailand.

Combined ticket 220 baht.

The botanical garden was decent, if not exciting. Mostly a lot of color with minimal variety of types of plants.

The attached restaurant had surprisingly good food. I had spring rolls and my wife had fried flat noodles with chicken, and we both liked our choices.

Doi Tung is a mountain in the Chiang Rai Province in Northern Thailand. close to the Myanmar border. People of various hill tribes (such as Akha, Lahu, Tai Lue and Lara) live there and cultivate coffee trees. It was very interesting for us to see a hilltribe village and their coffee plantations.
