Very colorful and picturesque royal garden, located right in the center of Doi Tung. It does have entrance fee, but is reasonable and it’s definitely worth paying. There are additional attractions inside like treetop walk, which is worth doing too.

The gardens and flowers here are fantastic, but the roads to Mae Fah Luang are also great... golden triangle, forested mountains, preaceful villages of the Pahee people, who are friendly and also famous for their coffee

I've been there many times and it's always fresh flowers, new fragrances to explore, and if it's not too many people's it's like a "flower temple", perfect for meditation!

These gardens were built on a mountain slope and offer an enchanting display of exuberant flowers. Very well kept.

This garden and the residence of the mother of the late King are quite far from Chiang Rai, up in the mountain. Interesting, especially for flower lovers, but not top of the list of things to see in this region in my view.
