Welcome to Dokmai Garden!
DOKMAI GARDEN IS CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF 2013!
Dokmai Garden is a private Chiang Mai botanical garden, providing a gateway to the understanding of the nature and culture of northern Thailand. Our biologist Dr Eric Danell and the Thai family Seehamongkol live in this private 4 hectare (10 acres) botanical garden. After the introduction you get from us we believe you will be better prepared to understand other Thai gardens, local food markets and the nearby national parks where thorough information and English and scientific names may be scarce. Multilingual information signs with scientific names are placed at points of interest around the garden.
"Dokmai" means flower, and we have over 1000 plant species, but we focus on all living beings, including birds, fish, butterflies and mushrooms. You are very welcome to enjoy our Thai botanical garden!
