An absolute must in Chiang Rai

The grounds are tranquil and gorgeously maintained. The temples are superb. We also enjoyed the contemporary art gallery. Great informative displays.

Nice park area with traditional buildings that contain museums. On the day we went there, 2 museums were open. Just a few other tourists there, far away from crowded. The entrance fee is with 200B a little high compared to other places. I think 100B would be more appropriate.

The current Thailand queen's mother created unique and beautiful mountain side gardens while residing on Doi Tung. The garden, the residence and a museum are all open to public so it is a good half day outing to get up to Tung mountain (we did by taxi) and then to spend 2-3 hours walking through the gardens and doing the...

By Thai standards this was little expensive for what it was. However it was only 200 baths each. You have a nice walk from the car park and the first stop is the Haw Khum (Golden Pavilion) where you can view some beautiful artifacts, the most spectacular of these is the central Buddha. Shame you can't take photos. You can... More

This was a fantastic gem- a park-like setting with a museum and gardens to explore. We rented bikes for the morning- it was an easy 2 km ride from our hotel. The setting could not have been more beautiful or more serene. It's not your usual tourist destination- it was a memorable find.

This was a really enjoyable morning. Only 80 baht in a taxi from the hotel. We arrived about 10.30 and were the only visitors there. There is a museum dedicated to the use of teak. It would help if you have a Thai speaker with you as not all the exhibits give an English translation. The museums are set in... More

Different from what western think about Art and Culture - for sure not a must to visit but interesting to have a short visit

I cannot understand why more foreign tourists don't visit these beautiful gardens and the villa of the kings mother, such a lovely half day trip from Chiang Rai. We had such a magnificent trip, easy and cheap to go alone, beautiful sights to see. Particularly loved the audio guide round the kings mothers villa. From Chiang rai bus station take... More

We arrived here quite late in the day and only had time to take a quick walk around the gardens. I wish we had of been able to really explore the whole facility properly because if the gardens were an indication, then the rest must have been equally amazing. The gardens were truly beautiful with gorgeous flowers in bloom and... More
