    Flower gardens

    Hi all,

    Where are the best places to see nice flowers in Thailand?
    I know the Orchid Farm in Chiang Mai, the Botanical Gardens,
    and the Royal project gardens up north (which is more agricultural).

    I heard (and always wanted to see) about the Grandmother Princess' Gardens. on the way to Chiang Rai.
    Has anyone been there and can tell me about it?
    I think this is the one:




    Thanks!!!
    it\'s my party and I\'ll cry if I want to.

    Yes, Doi Tung is located in Chiang Rai, not far away from the northernmost point of Thailand Mae Sai.
    Well worth a visit as is the whole area, which is full of different kind of agricultural projects. It's called Mae Fa Luang.

    question

    1,000,000 thanks Bamboo Grove!
    Knowing the name helps a lot.


    Is there a recommended season for visiting there?
    Is it better to take an organized tour or get there on my own?

    Thanks again

    They say that the north is most beautiful in February, when the cold season is over and many flowers start blooming. I haven't been there at that time but the visits I've made in October and December have been good too.
    If you want to spend more time in the gardens, go by yourself. You should be able to hire a taxi in Mae Sai or Chiang Rai town or if you can drive yourself, rent a car or motorbike and then you can go as you please.
    Check out the tour agencies though as they may have some interesting visits to the hill tribe villages in the area. Going alone to these places may not be so interesting as there is a language barrier between you and them.

    I like the north view in the rainy season. In January-February it was nice and sunny, and some places were blooming so beautifully. But in July-August there was that cloudy weather, so beautiful among those mountains....
    (*Talu misses it soooo much...)
    But my dream is to visit the north in November....

    Another 1,000,000 thanks for you, Bamboo Grove!
