The best time to visit Doi Tung Palace is in the morning. The weather will be cool and relaxing. You will feel quite comfortable.
The admission fee is only 90 Baht for one person, except for an elderly person, which will be 45 baht.
Beside of the palace itself, you will want to visit Mae Fah Luang Garden too. This garden is just in front of the palace. It is 16,000 square metres. Just pay for 90 Baht and you will see the area full of colorful cold weather plants. These are rare plants, really. Just admire them, take their photos, but don’t pick them or tease them.
