Do not go here unless you have transport to take you to the top of the garden or you are fit enough to walk up. We were staying about a 30 minute walk from the Botanic Garden so we walked there. On arrival I was free (60+) and my son paid 100 baht. So a great price. It looked steep and the garden is large. There were some buses but we were told that they were just for large groups and not us. We were told the walk up would be easy by the girl who sold us the ticket. Obviously she has never walked up herself. The road up is very steep and not suitable for pedestrians. There is nowhere to stop on the way up. After 45 minutes we still had 1.6 km to go. A bus passed us but did not let us on. I stopped the bus on its way down and asked if it would take us to the top. No. So I got on the bus and waited for it to move so that I did not have to walk down the steep road. The driver thought it was quite funny. Eventually we got back down to the entrance. I asked for and got my refund. So disappointing having read the great reviews of this place but I could not walk to the top. It is good to let seniors in free but maybe the garden needs to think about accessibility. I would heve paid a bus fare.
