Mae Fah Luang Art and Culture Park, Chiang Rai

4.2
#3 of 6 in Parks in Chiang Rai
For a mix of art and nature visit Mae Fah Luang Art and Culture Park, where you can casually stroll through the spacious compound and admire the architecture and gardens. The center of the park is dominated by a monumental tower, built in 1984 from remains of wooden houses. It contains a selection of Buddha sculptures and other religious items. The museum is dedicated to teak-based artifacts and traditional art, but contemporary art is also represented. You might enjoy a leisurely stroll through the impeccable gardens, Buddhist temples, and other interesting structures. A cafe and washrooms are available for refreshment. Mae Fah Luang Art and Culture Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Chiang Rai Edition.
