Granted, the purpose of travelling to Thailand is enjoying the Thai experience, but there's a hidden gem in Chiang Mai that's too breathtaking not to mention: Versailles de Flore cafe. Not counting architecture connoisseurs & history buffs, visitors at the cafe will be transported back in time to medieval Europe in a grand castle.

Ambience at Versailles de Flore

It isn't just the building that resembles Europe, but the entire cafe grounds. Surrounding the opulent Renaissance-esque building is a majestic garden landscape with statues and a gold water fountain. Imagine being royalty wandering around your castle grounds and dining with lords and ladies (aka your friends)!

The building itself is also quite a marvel, designed with columns, arches, intricate gold details.

The extravagance amps up even further inside, where every inch of the space is decorated with vibrant colours, from the arched windows to the painted ceilings.

Although the architecture is seemingly inspired by the Castle of Versailles, it also has some Thai-style elements like highly saturated colours and native plants.
