The Botanic Festival 2019 has kicked off in Chiang Mai, with fresh garden ideas blooming at Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens.
The Botanical Garden Organisation is showcasing the beautiful plants and designs at the festival under the theme “Home Garden” theme until next Wednesday, January 2.
The festival offers tours of the gardens, where visitors are invited to learn more about cultivating stylish displays and also growing their own vegetables.
Thailand’s very first botanic gardens are now a major travel destination in Mae Rim district, where they cover a mountainous area of 560 acres and showcase a vast collection of plants from different climates around the world.
Established in 1992 to honour HM Queen Sirikit, the gardens’ highlights include a Rainforest Glasshouse where you get to walk among a dense array of plants from tropical forests all over Asia.
Visitors can also take a bird’s-eye view by strolling among the tree tops on a Canopy Walk, where lush mountain vistas greet the eye.
