Lovely gardens

Very nice garden settings with lots of flowers and tropical plants. Well worth a visit while you stay in Chiangrai, espacially because it's just ashort trip.

Well worth the drive up the mountainside to visit the beautiful villa in a tranquil setting with superb views. The audio guide is informative without becomin boring. A highlight of our visit to Chiang Rai.

The gardens here are magnificent. There were familiar and exotic blooms in every color, as well as a variety of green plants, trees, shrubs, etc. The garden is large, beautifully designed and meticulously maintained. The princes' mother's house was interesting. The building is pleasant, and the views are lovely. The recorded explanation of each facet of the home is detailed... More

Probably one of the highlights of this trip to Thailand. From the tour round the Royal Villa, a beautiful building in a lovely setting, to the walk round the Mae Fah Luang Garden close by, all beautifully laid out and a riot of colour. Just wonderful.

If you have any interest in gardening you must see these gardens. Really nicely laid out , lovely flowers and plants . You will spend a good 2 hrs here just looking at all the plants. It only cost 90 baht entry fee. Well worth it.

What an amazing place to visit, this is well worth the drive from Chiang Rai, the road up is steep but breathtaking scenery. Entrance to the villa is 90 baht and another 90 baht for entrance to the mind blowing Mae Fah Luang Gardens, these gardens have orchids and the most beautiful floral presentations imaginable. Do take a visit you... More

I thought the attraction was only average. The garden was well laid out, but the plants on the boring side. The villa itself was well designed but not that interesting on the inside. Having said that it is a site that is about the royal family so probably worth a visit to understand the family a little better.

The Royal Villa is well worth a visit. It is beautifully maintained and interestingly designed and there are abundant flower displays too. I came here first time in 2006 when things were more relaxed and, for example, people wearing shorts did not have to don baggy trousers to hide one's knees and shins out of so-called respect. Since 2006 the... More

This place is well organized. They provide you with a headset to explain each station with its respective exhibits in the Royal Villa. It gives a window to the life of the King's mother and how she came to the north to help the hill tribes to rise up from poverty. Truly inspiring is her story as you connect it... More
