During a business trip to Chiang Mai, I and my colleague decided to make a short visit to Bhubing Palace. We have organized the tour from the hotel - Shangri La - where we were staying. Since, the palace is up on the mountain, you better take a tour. It is a curly road, and it will take you almost 45-60 min. driving. The palace garden and also the "Water Reservoir" area is nice and picturistic. However, since the palace is under renovation no one is allowed to go inside. Renovation will last one year as we were informed. I recommend that you take some food with you. Although there is a kind of cafe inside the garden, you can't be sure about the hygiene. Dressing is important as well. If you do not have long sleeves or panths, they provide you in the entrance.
