Doi Tung - The Royal Villa, Mae Fa Luang
(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Once a summer home of the Princess mother, Doi Tung - The Royal Villa now serves as a museum to highlight her charity work with local tribal people. Somdej Phra Srinagarindra worked to provide education in return for the eradication of opium production, which was replaced with crops of coffee, nuts, and fruit. Upon entering the museum, grab an audio guide for a detailed self-guided tour. Be sure to check out the Mae Fah Luang Gardens below the villa, and admire bundles of tropical flowers.

  • In Doi Tung the newly acctractie from ge tries, walking in the tree tops. It was a fun experience you definitely need to do when you get there. Nice view on some points and there is a good safety, so you don't have to be afraid. I liked it.

  • It is a fantastic place to know the history of The Mahidol Family and their contribution to what makes Thailand an Amazing country. Also to know more about the brave mother of The Late King Rama IX.

  • Like here, friendly, delicious, clean, peace,
  • Breathing the fresh air and seeing the royal garden on top of Doi Tung made me feel relaxed and get ready to work again.
  • This place needs to dress up sleeve and long pants and from 12 noon to 12:30 is housekeeping time. This is a Royal villa where the Kings mother used to stay. Translation in most language is available.
