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.

  • With my private tour guide from Chiang Mai, I was allowed to visit this incredible place. The the was built with the inspiration from the mother of Thai King's Royal Villa.

Right below the House is also very beautiful park of which today is still maintained with a lot of love.

  • You pay as a student only 45B to take a look here (90B for adults). After a short but stiff climb you reach the villa with a beautiful view! There you get an Audio Tour provided you throughout the House. Nice to once having seen-be forbidden to take pictures! However, I found the most beautiful the view..

  • 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.
  • Misplaced.
  • Lovely place
