Sai Nam Phung Orchid Farm

60-61 Moo 6, Old Mae Rim-Samerng Road, Thailand, 50180

The Basics

Thailand is rightfully famous for its orchids—more than 1,300 documented species grow in the country, and it’s the largest exporter of tropical orchids in the world. Sai Nam Phung Orchid stands out as one of the most colorful and unique gardens in the area, complete with its own butterfly garden, koi ponds, and a few antique cars. Most travelers visit the garden as part of a guided tour of the Chiang Mai countryside, often with activities like a Long Neck hill tribe visit, swimming at the Sticky Waterfall, or white-water rafting on the Mae Taeng River.

Bringing Orchids Home

If you’d like to bring something home with you, it’s a good idea to read up on the latest regulations first to avoid disappointment.
