Paid entry is required from foreigners, and no shorts or tights are allowed into the grounds. The traditional long skirts for ladies and Thai trousers for men can be hired if you arrived not dressed to its code. Inside the grounds the numerous gardens are more spectacular than the various palaces that are dotted within. Due the Mediterranean-like climate in Chiang Mai an abundance of flora and fauna flourish here, ranging from the large variety of orchids to roses, and from giant stands of bamboo to cold climate pine trees. The lake/reservoir is spectacular with terraced rows of red blooms on the far side. This is a rather large garden so allow a good 2 hours to cover all the main parts, and more if you intend to pause to smell the roses. Refreshments are available at the pit stop beside the lake where you can tuck into various varieties of street food and rest those weary legs. There are security personnel in almost every corner to ensure no wandering visitors trespass onto restricted areas - this is afterall the winter palace home of the royal family when they visit.

Due to its proximity a tour out to this part can be combined with a visit to the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai's most famous temple, a worthwhile visit to. And on the way back into town, if time allows, a stopover at the Tiger Park is also possible.

This is a place to walk around and enjoy the flowers. Flower lovers will like this place. Tights and short skirts, etc not allowed. Skirts and pants can be rented for 15baht to gain entry in addition to the entry fee from a separate vendor

The place has well kept gardens. There are a lot flowers like roses and orchids and several other indigenous trees. It is also very close to Doi Suthep temple and Doi Pui Hilltribe village, we combined these three places for our day tour as they are located in the same area.

Spent a lovely few hours wandering the lovely landscaped grounds of Bhubing Palace with our family. Beautiful rose gardens and greenhouses full of orchids. Nice spot by the man-made lake to stop for a snack.
