We visited the gardens twice, on a very quiet day, and on a public holiday with the KIngs birthday's celebration, when there were thousands of visitors. Both times were great. The Thai people are extremely well behaved and even though there were really thousands of visitors, there were not a paper laying around and everyone was behaving well. The gardens... More

The grounds of Royal Park Rajapruek is utterly magnificent - it was quiet and not ridden with tourists like all other attractions in Chiang Mai, yet this was definitely one of the most beautiful places I've had the pleasure of visiting. The temple stands on a beautiful river-moat and just magnificent. The whole grounds are soo well maintained and elegant,... More

We visited on that day, it's very happening that you can see all Thai people gather in the park for picnic while waiting for the celebration. Some attractions already torn down. You might spend a whole day in the park as in its very big. We take tram ride few times to speed up our visiting but still can't manège... More

Went there on a weekdays morning. Not many people. Admission B100 per person. Nothing impressive except for the Orchid Pavilion and the Royal Pavilion. It is flat and devoid of landscaping. Good for a stroll. Not much place for families to picnick.

The Royal gardens are a wonderfully laid out park with exotic flowers and plants. In September the place was almost empty which allowed us to wander round without crowds and to see the plants close up. Some beautiful buildings and displays. There is a train you can get around the garden which allows you to hop on hop off. if... More

If you like parks, then this is the place to go. There is a bus that goes around for familiarisation, and then you are free to travel around by foot. Good views of the mountains too. Good to combine this park with a visit to the Night Safari, which is virtually next door.

Relax, stroll or sit on the green grass. Look at the gardens and dream of what you need at home. Feel the breeze and watch the happy birds, flying and singing without a care in the world.

Visited on 6th Nov 2014. Its was drizzling throughout the day. Rented a scooter and rode there with my wife. Wasnt too hard to find though but got to look out for the signs as they are sometimes being 'camouflaged' by the shops and other signs. The park was huge and beautiful. Locals pay B$50 and foreigners B$100 for entrance... More
