Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden
A beautiful Chiang Mai attraction, the first genuine botanical
garden in Thailand was the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden in the Mae
Sa Valley. It now also serves as a centre of botanical research and
studies. The main feature of this attraction is the Glasshouse
Complex, made up of four exhibition conservatories and eight
display glasshouses. A lovely river runs melodically through the
grounds. The Thai Orchid Nursery and Rock Garden are other
highlights of the gardens, as well as various walking trails and
shaded rest areas. Facilities for visitors include a restaurant, a
first-aid station, souvenir shops and toilets.
