#6 of 35 in Parks in Chiang Mai
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. Start your trip to Chiang Mai by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

  • is a Thai royal family garden, not a small, all indoor can not be inside to visit, just stroll around the garden, the vegetation is still good, if it is a scenic spot, then the park in your city is better than this, but here it is the Thai Royal Summer Palace where the place to walk after dinner.

  • After being last to the botanical gardens sponsored by the Queen (beautiful) this garden here not excited in any way, obvious that being just a few km from there by car is worth going but it is nothing. Eye to maneuver in the parking lot, if you are with your car, which is very tight.

  • This was basically a tour of some different roses and flowers. The actual palace was not open. The remaining buildings were all under renovations. Steep hills and steps. Not suitable for young childre...  more »

  • The flowers are beautiful! Alot more time here so you can go around without rushing. 3hrs would be generous enough with all those picture taking. The trail is a bit steep so it's best to just take your time while walking. Comfort rooms in the area are very clean even at places where people rarely go. Be well dressed/covered when you visit. Shorts and sleeveless tops are not allowed. You can bring a jacket or a cardigan but they don't allow scarfs and shawls to cover your arms. If all else fails, you can rent a proper attire just outside the gate for a very reasonable price. It would be perfect for your photos too!
  • A botanical garden is a better description, with walkways through massive trees, fern gardens, a orchid nursery, colourful rose garden, immaculate lawns and well tended flower beds. The Royal Winter residences are situated in these massive ground so there is “No Entry” to many pathways or entrances. Note the closing at 3:30pm and all visitors must have covered shoulders and long dresses or full length trousers. Facilities like Visitor Information, toilets, first aid, wheelchair hire and security. During the Royal visit to the north, the palace is closed from January to March.
  • If you come here, you are wasting your money and time. The gardens were small, they don’t let you go into the palace and you cannot wear shorts in there so they will ask you to rent one for 40 baht. This place is definitely not worth a visit. Chiang Mai is filled with many attractions so why choose this?
  • Busy visiting on holidays. Need about 1.5 to 2 hours to walk the entire palace grounds. Wear pants and shirt that covers shoulders. Beautiful roses and orchids.
  • This is a the Royal summer palace, I guess it was a good place to escape the humidity and heat of Bangkok before the advent of air conditioning. You can definitely notice how much cooler it is up there when you head up there from Chiang Mai. The grounds are absolutely massive and immaculately kept. It's a beautiful place and an absolute delight to visit.
