Tue-Sun 8am-6pm
313, Moo 7, Ban Pa Ngiew, Chiang Rai, Thailand

The basics

Also within the park sits the Golden Pavilion (Haw Kham). Rising from the center of the park, this temple-like royal residence was built in 1984 from the materials of 32 Thai wooden houses. You can come to the park independently or with a guide as part of a larger area tour; the latter option is useful if you want to learn about the history and significance of the Lanna Kingdom.

The Hall of Opium

The Mae Fah Luang foundation also runs a museum north of Chiang Rai, on the border with Laos and Myanmar, known as The Hall of Opium. The focus here is on the opium trade that dominated the region until the 1990s, and focuses on both the history of the opium trade, the opioid addiction epidemic, and its legal, political, and social implications.
