Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden is along the 1096 in the Mae Sa Valley, about a 30-45 Minute drive from Chiang Mai. It is not so much a garden but rather a botanical area. You will most likely need a car to get around. There are several parking lots around the area although there could be more, since some of the... More

This is a beautiful park. If you're looking to spend a few hours or more enjoying nature this would be a great place to do that. It is a large property and a golf cart makes it more enjoyable to tour the grounds. Don't miss viewing the orchids, they are very special and presented in luscious setting.

Once through the entrance visitors are soon away from road traffic, market stall vendors and the sounds of everyday life. These gardens do cover many acres so a leisurely pace is recommended. Nothing like Kew Gardens with its myriads of plants and flowers, it still provides much to see and explore. There are some surprises...especially inside the glasshouses so I... More

Then had lunch at the main area at the top of the hill.Walked around the glass houses where the kids saw the carniverous plants and the... More

Beautiful place. Leave plenty of time to see everything. The orchards and the water lillies are our favourites. Better signage would be good. Make sure you get a map. The views are wonderful of the valley. A definite must to see.

The gardens are about 30 miles northwest of Chiang Mai, close to the little town of Mae Rim and next door to the Mae Sa Elephant Camp. It cost a small amount to enter the gardens (I think it was 100 baht for adults and 50 for children). It is useful that you can drive through the grounds, parking up... More

The outstanding thing was the cactus gardens. Never seen anything like it before. The others were standard gardens that you see. Can hire a taxi from town, you have to pay for the taxi to go inside gates and fees for looking at gardens.

I live in Florida and I love landscaping. This property and all the multiple greenhouses are beautiful. Each greenhouse has a different theme and the lotus flowers are beautiful. This was one of the prettiest spots I visited.

Very well maintained with some lovely landscape. A lot to walk though and you at least need to spend two hours here.
