Royal Park Rajapruek : Chang Mai

After 14 years of being away I made my way back to where it all began – Chang Mai, my first stop on the 14+ years travel journey. I revisited places I’ve already been to, but also got a chance to see new things. I rented a scooter for a couple of days, and on the second day ventured south, an area I have yet to explore. Visiting a temple up on the mountains I saw a large park centered around a large temple and decided to come down and explore.  Turns out these are royal gardens – the Royal Park Rajapruek – which also hosted international expo exhibitions. It’s a very large park, filled with goodies, and gardens and pavilions from all over the world, kept long after the expo was done.

I spent almost three hours walking around and enjoying the park. Aside from a few locals here and there it was mostly deserted, felt like I had the entire park for myself. Definitely wasn’t expecting any of this here, it was absolutely gorgeous.

 

Shall we enter?
