Mae Fah Luang Botanical Garden

  • An orchid at the Mae Fah Luang Botanical Garden

    Mae Fah Luang Gardens is an award-winning garden, acclaimed as the most beautiful temperate flower and plant garden in Thailand. The gardens are located on land that was originally the Akha village of Pa Kluay. This village used to be an important route for opium caravans and those involved in heroin-related weapon trafficking until it was resettled by the Doi Tung Development Project of the Mae Fah Luang Foundation. A garden of mostly temperate flowers was built over

    10 acres of land in accordance with the Princess Mother’s wishes to give Thai people who have never travelled.

  • A flower at the Mae Fah Luang Botanical Garden

    overseas an opportunity to enjoy a temperate flower garden. In the middle of this garden stands “Continuity,” a sculpture by the late Misiem Yipintsoi. The Princess Mother gave this name to the sculpture to draw attention to the fact that continuity ensures the success of any endeavor. The flowers in Mae Fah Luang Garden are grown and nurtured by local villagers. The landscape designer, Pravit Boonmee, has been untiringly devoting his talents and experience for the 17 years since the beginning of the development of this garden. He is still faced with the constant challenge of how to keep the garden in full bloom all year round. Among his unique creations are the special color schemes for the different days of birth of the royal family such as red for the Princess Mother who was born on a Sunday, and yellow for His Majesty the King who was born on a Monday. The Garden brings substantial income to the area, directly as job opportunities for the locals, and indirectly as a tourist destination that on some days welcomes more than 10,000 visitors.
