Mae Fah Luang Art and Cultural Park

An Ideal Outing for the Lover of Art and Architecture

From visiting the Bang Sai Orchid Garden and the Nong Yao Forest to exploring agro-tourism in Thailand, there are many educational experiences to be had in former Siam. Upon perusal of a Chiang Rai travel guide, for instance, travellers will find iconic attractions such as the Baan Dam Museum, also known as the Black House, the Wat Klong Wiang, a lesser known temple, and the Mae Fah Luang Art and Cultural Park: sites of importance that merit a visit. For tourists who wish for luxurious and comfortable accommodation in Chiang Rai, the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort is an excellent option for it is located centrally to a number of major tourist attractions.

The Mae Fah Luang Art and Culture Park is one such destination that is a perfect attraction for those interested in art, artefacts and architecture for it houses one of the largest collections of Lanna artefacts in the country as well as a number of other sites of interest.
