Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden




  The Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden is located in Chiangmai, Thailand, within the lush mountains of Doi Pui-Suthap.  The property of the garden covers over seven miles, and features collections of rare and endangered species of native flora.

 

The garden was opened in 1992.  Today it features 4 exhibitions and 8 glass houses.  These include a rain forest plant collection, cacti collection, and aquatic plant collection.

 

For those of you who like to hike, there are a large number of trails on the property that lead through the forest.  Most take one to two hours to hike.

  The garden is open daily from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
