Royal Flora Ratchaphruek Gardens
Enjoy a relaxed morning in the southern districts of Chiang Mai strolling through the magnificent Royal Flora Ratchaphruek gardens.
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.
