Currently Closed - Was a lovely resource

A wonderful garden with an encyclopedic owner. The amount of information available was rivaled only by the flora.

I visited the gardens today after reading a blog about them. I called the number on the website and was told we could visit but it would be a self guided tour for 200 baht each. I think we got ripped off. The gardens are very run down, haven't been mown or trimmed in ages. I was scared I was... More

For whatever reason this beautiful establishment is now closed. The owner has apparently returned to Europe. The website mentions concerns about politics in the region. Fingers crossed that it opens again. Please check teh website first!

The gardens are beautiful and definitely worth seeing. However, the real attraction for me was the beautiful restaurant. The food is good (not out of this world great or anything), but it's a beautiful quiet space to eat, which is nice after all the hubbub of street eating in Thailand There is a beautiful store here as well that supports...

The wonderful reviews of this place are all completely true. My friend and I were planning on taking a cooking class when I stumbled apon Dokmai Garden online. We decided that a day with a market tour and botanical edible garden would be more interesting than just hanging out in a kitchen all day. I love to visit local markets... More

Definitely one of the highlights of our last Chiang Mai escapade. Eric, the host, is an excellent communicator: he'll provide with enormous amounts of interesting information, and very amusing anecdotes all throughout the 2 hours tour. His passion and enthusiasm is contagious. Even you're a total beginner in botanic matters, as I am, you'll enjoy every bit of it. I... More

We did this tour on Saturday so Eric was able to take us to the Saturday market to see locals buying and selling everything from food, clothes and electronics to water buffalo and chickens and ducks. A great experience and well worth the early start! Dokmai garden is extremely interesting with a large array of native species which Eric and... More

This is a wonderful way to spend a half/whole day. Eric is super knowledgeable and very personable at the same time. He has a great sense of humor and can answer even the questions posted by myself, by far the lest knowledgeable member of the group.
