Enjoy a relaxed morning in the southern districts of Chiang Mai strolling through the magnificent Royal Flora Ratchaphruek gardens.
Royal Flora Ratchaphruek
The Royal Flora Ratchaphruek gardens were opened in 2006 as the site of a horticultural exposition. The site covers 200 acres, which includes the public gardens, exhibition halls, a restaurant, and government research buildings.

Walking in the Ratchaphruek gardens can be warm and humid work, so we recommend visiting in the late afternoon.
If you don't want to walk everywhere, a hop-on/hop-off tram operates with 5 regular stops within the gardens. We can also arrange hire of a golf cart if you prefer.
Royal Flora Ratchaphruek is close to the Baan Tawai wood carving village, so you can easily combine a visit here on a half day tour of Chiang Mai's southern districts.
