This week we’re traveling to the Chiang Mai areas and visiting the Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens.  You can visit their website here. The gardens opened up in 1992 with the name “Ma Sae Gardens” and were renamed in 1994 to their current name.

The larger permanent greenhouse structures were very impressive.  Designed to last decades they’re very well built and their designs attractive.  The most permanent gardens are inside these structures and I very much enjoyed myself as I walked around taking in the beauty every step revealed.

The grounds are spacious and nestled in lush green rolling hills with a view from three sides.  It takes some time to walk around the entire area, but there are plenty of places to sit down and rest and admire the view.

Inside the smaller greenhouses you’ll find cement forms holding plant species of all types.  These are interesting because there are all sorts of smaller projects and experiments going on that you can read about and observe.

As you walk out one door you might see a vista view of the mountains, and walking in the next greenhouse beautiful ponds with fish and water plants.

If you like learning about plants, looking at flowers, and a nice quiet relaxing stroll around a beautiful garden then I highly recommend a visit.
