Bhubing Palace, Chiang Mai

(480+ reviews on the web)
Castle
Tour the royal family's winter residence at Bhubing Palace, built in 1961. In addition to hosting royalty, the attraction also receives foreign dignitaries during their visits to Thailand. Be sure to stroll through the rose gardens, which thrive here thanks to cooler temperatures in the mountains. Take a guided tour if you want complete details on the palace, and remember to dress warmly. Note that when the royal family is in residence here, the attraction closes to the public. Check the website before you go to avoid disappointment. Plan to visit Bhubing Palace and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Chiang Mai attractions using our Chiang Mai itinerary maker.

  • Bhuping Palace is enroute to Doi Suthep, so, easy to visit both on the same day, should you desire.. It's a lovely long walk around the grounds, best done early morning before it gets too hot. A writt...  more »

  • I went along December 2016. Face palm moment as soon as I got there... no shorts allowed ! But no problem, free trousers provided so was ok. Once I I walked around the gardens and took in the sights. Nice well kept gardens here of course. The main palace was shut off? not sure it it is always shut? but was when I went. Am not into gardens as such but still was nice to walk around. If you are into plants etc then go along you will enjoy it.
  • It's a nicely kept garden in the ground of a palace that you can't enter. Very strict dress code; no shorts, shoulders or flesh. Farang pay to enter. Nice greenhouse as well. Take an umbrella for protection from the sun. Lots of flowers and buildings to walk around. Not that memorable.
  • Beautiful flowers and gardens, but not worth the trip up. Not only is the trip up the mountain long and winding, but there is a 50 baht entrance fee. You can't go into any of the buildings, and they are hardly impressive from the outside. Again, the grounds are pretty, but there are other beautiful places to go in ChiangMai that take less time, effort, and money.
  • Nice grounds and fairly well maintained. Not allowed inside the palace which was a little disappointing anyway. Ok for a morning walk. Bring long pants or you will be sharing clothing with the mobs of Chinese tourists that flock here.
  • Well look after Royal Garden. Has many beautiful flowers. Good for family week end trip or photographic.
