Botanical Gardens Of Northern Thailand (Part 2) Northern Thailand has numerous points of interest that might be of great interest to gardening and botanical fanatics. Just outdoors of Chiang Mai, Thailand's second biggest city and also the gateway towards the northern provinces, are two outstanding botanical gardens - Full Sirikit Botanical Garden and Bhubing Structure and Garden, among the estates from the royal family. The optimum time to visit is soon after the finish from the wet season at the begining of November, when many flowers are flowering. Full Sirikit Botanical Garden Situated in Mae Sa Valley, a well known mountain resort area just forty-five minutes - one hour drive from Chiang Mai - Full Sirikit Botanical Garden at 960 hectares (2,372 acres) is undoubtedly the biggest and many important Botanical Garden in Thailand. If you are a botanical enthusiast, no visit to Thailand is done unless of course you schedule finally a couple of days going to this fascinating facility. As there's a lot ground to pay for here, It is best to remain at among the fine mountain lodges close to the Garden in Mae Sa Valley instead of remaining in Chiang Mai. Opened up in 1993, this garden were produced like a botanical research center as well as for site visitors who wanted find out more about the flowers and plants of Thailand. Trust me, QSBG is big. After I visited these gardens a couple of years back, I didn't have plenty of time to completely tour the home, maybe the next time. You will find numerous interesting botanical walking trails that crisscross and circle the hilly property featuring prominent shows of tropical flowers and plants. One route will expose you to Thai plants and native medicinal herbal treatments, another route features climbers and vines. Or possibly, you want to have a hike to some small waterfall, in route you'll go by the Thai Rock garden. This trail eventually ends up in the Thai Orchid Nursery, which hosts over 350 native orchid species. Although, I didn't have plenty of time to understand more about these trails, I'm told each trail takes 40-an hour to accomplish. As I was there, I visited the glasshouse conservatory, which houses the jungle exhibit. Filled with an electric powered artificial waterfall, this exhibit features most of the plants that thrive within the jungle - gingers, anthuriums, ferns, cycads, impatiens, begonias along with other species. You will find a number of temperature-controlled green-houses situated around the hillside, each having a different grouping or group of flowers and plants. Among the green-houses features an incredible assortment of begonias a different one features mostly Thai medicinal plants and herbal treatments. Probably the most unusual and exotic plant which i experienced there is the Softball bat Plant (Tacca chantrieri), that is native to Southeast Asia. The green house exhibit featuring a varied number of water lilies and lotuses was most impressive. Browse the stark contrast between your very unique and austere marble planters and also the large black containers (see picture). Factoid - Water lotus is really a sacred plant within the Buddhist religion. Bhubing Structure and Gardens Bhubing Structure and Garden may be the winter residence for that Royal family. When her Royal Highness, Full Sirikit, makes her periodic visits to Northern Thailand to operate on a variety of community projects, she always returns to Bhubing Spot to relaxation up.
