This cultural park is situated on the west of Chiang Rai City and serves as an art and cultural haven. This park houses lush green grounds and has welcomes people who wish to learn about the indigenous culture. Originally known as the Rai Mae Fah Luang, the Mae Fah Luang Art and Cultural Park was part of the Youth Leadership Project initiated by the late princess Mother. It provided lodgings for the ethnic minority youths who came to attend schools and also learn about living in urban areas. Today, the Mae Fah Luang Art and Cultural Park is the region's largest collection of art items from the Lanna culture or Tai culture (the ethinic minorities that live in northern Thailand, China's southwestern region, the Shan States in Myanmar, northwestern Vietnam and western Laos). Opened to tourists, the Park features not only antique artifacts but also beautiful Lanna architecture such as the "Haw Kham" (Golden pavillion), which was built by Chiang Rai people to celebrate the Princess Mother's 84th birthday. Other attractions include "Haw Kaew" where permanent exhibition on teakwood is featured alongside year-round revolving exhibitions and a botanical collection of indigenous plants from the northern region.
With and area of over 150 rai, the Mae Fah Luang Art and Cultural Park serves as a venue for art exhibitions and cultural performances.

A pretty garden and walk around the lake. Very quiet so slightly surreal, when I arrived was the only one there. Half of it was closed so entry fee was reduced but was able to walk through the closed bit anyway. Interesting photography exhibition but limited English signs. Not a waste of a morning but wouldn't recommend going out of your way for it
Excellent place to visit and spend time with nature and enjoy the wonderful workmanship of wood
Very nice place. Two entrances closed. Finally one local guy came on motor bike to help is to show the entrance. Bit overpriced with 200 Baht entry fee. However gardens are good, staff is nice, some old culture. 200 years old Buddha images made from teak wood. Everything here made in teak. Don’t be in hurry. Bring your food spend time with nature.
Wow what a hidden gem in Chiang Rai! Highly recommended! Come spend a few hours here, bring some food and have a picnic by the lake.
Great way to spend a couple of hours, lots of gardens to explore, not for kids though
