After renting a motorbike, a friend and I rode towards the hills and saw signs for this botanical garden. We didn't realize it was so large that you actually had to drive from garden to garden. It was absolutely gorgeous, from the sounds of nature, to the smells and fresh air! We didn't even get to explore all of it... More

We took a taxi and travelled out of town to visit these gardens with Thai family who were in Chiang Mai for the first time. Our group was 5 adults and 4 children and we all had a great day. Really good selection of flowers and beautifully maintained gardens. The setting high on the hillside was quite spectacular and we... More

A Sydney landscape gardener friend of mine who has a Thai partner put me onto this and it was an excellent day out. We paid a meter taxi driver 1500 THB (about $A50) for the whole day. This was arranged by our hotel front desk (Rimping Village Hotel, Chiang Mai) and the driver was happy to take us anywhere en-route... More

We rented a motorbike and it was a lengthy drive out of Chiang Mai to the Queen Sirikit Gardens, but well worthwhile. The plantings are very well presented and represent all climates. Especially good are the green houses with a lot of orchidees.

Beautiful gardens outside of the Queen's Pagoda inside Ithanon Park. Although the day was wet and the cloud cover made it difficult to see from the King's Pagoda over to Her Majesty's and beyond into the gardens, we were able to walk through and enjoy the serenity pervading this lovely place.

It was a lengthy drive north of Chiang Mai to the Queen Sirikit Gardens, but well worthwhile. I combined it with a visit to an orchid ranch and a stop & walk to the Mae Sa Waterfalls & park. The gardens , grounds and fountains are beautifully done. The many big, well kept green houses had every group of plants... More

We hired a driver for 4 hours and used a good portion of the time getting out of the city. There was horendous congestion caused by road works. The locals thought it was a good idea to repair the road at peak hour. We spent quite a bit of time in the glass houses. The two best ones were the... More
