Tips for you
Went here in the late morning and it was virtually empty of visitors. Tweechol is large, so we rented bicycles to ride around. Besides the orchids, there are various species of palm trees, cacti, bromeliads and more. There are animal shaped trees, peacocks, deer at the petting zoo, a pool, and other random but pleasantly fun things to see and do. Worth a trip at least for the orchids!
There is so beautiful place not far from Chiang Mai. Just 20 minutes driving from the center. It's good for spend the weekend with your family and kids. I recommend it :-)
