Beautiful Garden with Walking Trails and Impressive Display of Plants and Flowers Jun 08, 2014
I had a lovely morning wandering around the gardens and I would recommend it to anyone interested in flora and fauna, hiking, or relaxing. Be aware that if you take a tuk tuk from Chiang Mai as I did you will be on foot throughout the expansive property unless you want to pay additional for your driver to drive you around. It is about a 45 minute drive from Chiang Mai. The greenhouse complex is set atop a long steep hill. I was very impressed with the greenhouses and the overall beauty of the mountainous area, and how large the grounds. There are local as well as tropical species within the gardens and lots of variety. Two of the larger green houses have manmade waterfalls inside accessed by a wooden footpath. The entry fee for an adult is only 40 Baht and the garden is open every day from 8:30 until 16:30.

Serene. Not a must visit. Apr 06, 2013
Visited the botanical gardens with a group of classmates on a short-term study abroad trip. It was pretty and very scenic being up in the hills. I thought the greenhouse plants were okay but I enjoyed the outdoor scenery much more: the best photo opps were in the rose garden and down near the entrance by the clock & water fountain. We also stopped at the waterfall on the way out, which was fun to climb (and slippery!). If you're not a huge plant freak, don't put this on your must-do list... but overall, it was peaceful and I'm not disappointed to have had this experience!

(as always in Thailand, bring tissue with you for encountering bathrooms with no toilet paper!)
