Phu Phing Palace


What :

Nestled in the forests of the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, the temperate gardens of the Phra Tamnak Phu Phing royal palace entice travelers on luxury tours of Thailand to stroll through fragrant paths dotted with cold-weather flowers.

The royal palace was constructed in 1961 as a winter retreat and guesthouse for visiting dignitaries and royalty. While the palace structures themselves are off limits to the public, when the royal family is not in residence guests on luxury tours of Thailand can walk around the park-like grounds.

While the cool weather gardens are a rare sight in this part of the world, the fountains that dance in rhythm with music composed by members of the royal family is particularly memorable.

When :

June through October rains make the year-round gardens here particularly beautiful. The best weather in the area is November to January, and the grounds could be closed to the public if the royal family is in-residence between January and March. The hottest temperatures for the area are from March to May.

Where :

The Phra Tamnak Phu Phing royal palace is located in the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park on the edge of Chiang Mai City in Northern Thailand. The park and palace are best accessed from the city by private vehicle.

Who :

Lovers of culture and natural beauty find the palace grounds to be a wonderful destination on their Thailand tours.

Appropriate Attire :

The palace has a strict dress code, and visitors wearing clothes that do not cover their shoulders, arms, and knees can be denied entry.

Candace Washington - October 2013

If you want to get the most out of your trip to Thailand and have a personalized experience that you will enjoy the entire way, book with Easy Tours of Thailand. We had a fantastic time.

The Thai food was amazing and our guide knew the best local and authentic places to dine. The amount of knowledge and insight our guide had about each site, and Thai culture overall, was so helpful. We could have visited these sites on our own, but having our guide along the way really gave us an entirely different perspective and made our experiences seem "full."

Our guides made sure we arrived to popular sites ahead of big tour groups so that we could get the best photo ops (they acted as great amateur photographers too!), and also guided us to amazing 'off the beaten track' areas that I am so glad we didn't miss. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel in the morning everything was expertly taken care of the whole way.

We were also provided a private driver and vehicle that was air conditioned (very important!) and safely driven. All things considered, the price of the tour is very reasonable and well worth the money.

I would highly recommend Easy Tours of Thailand to anyone thinking about doing a similar tour.
