Bhubing Palace is a royal winter residence built to accommodate the royal family during their visits to Chiang Mai. We reached here, as part of a taxi tour of Wat Doi Suthep, and other temples on the west of the Chiang Mai Old Town. It is about 6km from Wat Doi Suthep. Entry to the place is by purchase of a ticket priced at 50Baht. You must be properly attired, shoulders covered and with long pants, or you may be given a pants to cover up before entry to the compound. There are a number of buildings here. There is a log cabin which is the seasonal residence of the royal princess, a eucalyptus wood log cabin which is the seasonal residence of crown prince, a two storey royal Guesthouse, a teak wood pavilion, a fern garden, and a water reservoir. The gardens with various flowering plants, including roses are well landscaped, well maintained, clean quiet and peaceful away from noise. There are sign boards explaining the various buildings here. We were there in the morning, and the weather was pleasant due to the elevation and the surroundings. We spent about one and a half hours, here to look around and capture some pictures. Our visit here was worthwhile.

We went in the rainy season and the place was shrouded in cloud but it was hot, so much like walking around in a sauna. The palace was closed as where many parts of the garden which was frustrating. Glad I went but would only go again if I could see more of it!!

It is very beautiful with the plants and fliwers. A definite plus is the free parking. As foreigner you have to pay a higher price-even with a work permit. They are very strickt with the clothing, stricter than in a temple.

After a long ride up to the tallest peak in Thailand you are rewarded with a beautiful view and a lovely garden.

Hiked from Doi Suthep to Bhubing Palace. We got to Doi Suthep by red truck and then we walked on main road, later the road narrowed. There is no trail and traffic is higher but ok, walking πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ is ok due to relatively good space on wider road. Later on narrower road it is only for one car so people, motorbikes 🏍 and cars πŸš™ need to be careful. It is hiking πŸ₯Ύ from 1,000m to 1,600m. Good shoes πŸ‘ž, water and snack needed. You can continue to Doi Pui view point- great place to see the jungle from top. It is short walk for 15min. Bhubing Palace we saw from outside as we forgot to take proper dress πŸ‘—
