Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web
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.

  • the visit is made up of two parts: the visit built House that was the mother of the King and who already died and, to the side, the botanical gardens she designed and of great beauty and in formation of ladder on an adjacent Hill. the House is a mixture of Central European style (specifically Swiss, because she lived in Lausanne) and Thai, all in teak with a sober but superb elegance. the House can not be photographed inside. Visit dependencies main others look relatively good. The gardens if they can be visited in its entirety and place it is very frequented by tourists from Thailand. The gardens are well-maintained and worth the visit. I see this place as one site more to visit, for many reasons, if you are that Thai for European tourists or outside of Thailand. It is interesting but NOT essential, from this point of view.
