Wow what a fantastic place for nature lovers. Please ensure all your camera batteries are fully charged. I didn't & used one battery just chasing butterflies around the garden. So this means I'm going back in the morning to continue. But I'm happy to go back as it is worth it. It is inexpensive & not far out of Chiang... More

This is a huge botanical garden, well maintained, well managed. After paying entrance fee you will be given a map of the garden. The highlight is the Glass House which beautifully presented. What I love the most is the Orchid House, very pretty!

This is not for older people who cannot walk long distances especially in the heat. For those who love botanical gardens, this place is beautiful but it will feel too manicured if you'd rather be exploring the jungle -- maybe try Doi Inthathon or ask your hotel desk about trekking?

Lovely place to walk around and enjoy the peace. Lots of different paths. Take your walking shoes and insect repellant. Not expensive

If you have only limited time to visit any attractions in Mae Rim, this is the one. We recommend that you go there with a driver. So you can drive the car up to conservatory. Else, you have to wait for shuttle train but it can be a long wait. Start the visit with conservatory close to the fountains and... More

There are some really cool areas. It's mostly outdoor though and it's so hot it's hard to enjoy it fully. The greenhouses had a lot of variety of plants, which was neat to see. The waterfall wasn't all that impressive, and neither was the skywalk. There are many pretty flowers and some walking trails, but it was just too hot... More

We were disappointed that the Canopy walkway was closed, but we walked the nearby outdoor gardens that appeared to need a little taming. We took the not-quite-finished road to the Ginger garden. The showcase Glasshouse complex was quite impressive, although some of the exhibits were under development. The finished museum revealed the country’s interest in the environment and there was...

The cactus zone is awesome!!! I really like it. Moreover, I heard that it has new zone called Canopy walkway but it is temporary closed. Because it was rainy season (July-September). However, overall is good. I like everything in there. ^^
