The Basics

The Tweechol Botanic Garden is a popular destination for travelers looking for a short escape from the hustle of Chiang Mai. Visitors can walk through wild-orchid displays and collections of unique succulents or ride bikes through the topiary of palm trees. Travelers will also learn about the traditions of the Lanna people, and children will love the small but impressive zoo—home to dozens of animals including ostriches, deer, camels, and peacocks. For an afternoon of adventure in the Thai countryside, opt for a tour that combines a visit to the gardens with some cycling down rural country roads and ziplining through the Mae Sa Valley canopy.
