Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very pleasant garden, good for a long walk, with a selection of interesting works of art placed in the garden grounds (as of Jan 2024)

This is a very lovely venue; the gardens are very well done. It was nice observing the domestic tourists enjoying the day, too.

This was my second visit to this place, the first being 5 years ago. The museum was interesting, with most exhibits being described in both English and Thai. The largest "house" has exhibits from the different regions of Northern Thailand set in an amazingly beautiful feat of architecture. Unfortunately no photographs were allowed inside this building. The gardens are beautifully landscaped, and nicely shaded. Surprisingly few people were there, considering it is only 7km from the clock tower area. An easy scooter ride. I did feel it was overpriced though, at 200 thb, basing this opinion on the fact that I have traveled extensively in thailand going back 20 years and have visited many museums and national parks for comparison. Worth a visit though, despite the high price.

Quite frankly it was underwhelming considering that my expectations were high after reading good reviews. You have to walk a lot to see so little. It wouldn't be so bad if this was a beautiful park with lovely flowers and beautiful statues. Instead you get lots of grass and trees with some seemingly abandoned and dusty buildings. For a better experience, go to Oub Kham museum where you can see more and walk less.

I absolutely loved this place and consider it one of the highlights of our trip to the area. It was nearly deserted when we went, the grounds are beautiful and the exhibits are stunning, especially the one nearest the entrance that houses a rich collection of temple decorations. Don't let the entrance fee dissuade you; it's well worth it.

The attraction comprises a villa where the mother of King Rama IX lived. You can visit it, and although it is large and well made, for royalty it is kept quite modest. On the other side of the road is the beautiful park, laid out on a hill. There is also a museum, however prensently under renovation.

This is defintely a must visit in Chiang Rai if you want to know a little bie more of the history and culture of the northern part of Thailand and Lanna culture.
It is hidden, it is out of the usual path of travellers but please do read a little bit about it and you will be happy and content with this unusual place in Chiang rai.

Although the people might mistaken this place with Doi Tung, they are all under the project and patronage of Mae Fah Luang, the art and cultural park is in Chiang Rai City, a bit out of skirts.

If you want to have a pure "thainess" experience, this is the place. Secluded location, the trees and careful crafted gardens, takes you to the heart of this unique Thai country that we love.

When you start driving inside the park, seems to be "another park", "another view", another lake, but no... there are two beautiful hall-pavilions, large, one with a permanent gallery and changing exhibitions and another one, with lanna kingdom memorabilia.

Last but not least, you will find a lot of unique spots to take beautiful photos and very detailed information provided by the carers and well trained staff that will provide you with all information needed.

It is a quiet place, slow motion, to enjoy and walk around.
Need to spend, if you like art and nature, a couple of hours to visit.

Enjoy it and dont miss it!
