Royal Park Rajapruek in Chiang Mai

Spread over about 200 acres and located about 20 minutes from either the Chiang Mai Airport or downtown Chiang Mai on Rajapruek Road is this royal botanical park. I am not sure what the connection is to royalty, we couldn’t seem to find an answer to that while we were visiting but Thai people certainly enjoy this gorgeous park featuring flora not only Thailand but from many tropical regions. There are numerous country originated pavilions or region based gardens. This small sampling of iPad taken images don’t do it justice but for lovers of tropical architecture and lush tropical gardens the Royal Park Rajapruek makes a great day trip from Chiang Mai.
