Interesting History of Royal Family

The tour of the villa and the accompanying garden grounds was fascinating, educational and very beautiful.

Definitely a highlight of our visit in Chiang Rai - I believe that this place is a must, not only, and not so much, for the beauty of the building itself and of the surrounding grounds (although they would be worth a visit on their own), but especially because of the story behind the place, and of the outstandingly positive...

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
