Visiting Chiang Mai in the North of Thailand generally means Elephants, Temples and Thai cooking lessons. Chiang Mai was the penultimate place of the trip, we were poor and we were templed out so when we came across a 3D/illusion art museum ‘Art in Paradise’ we were obviously going to go. (And yes, that is the name of the museum and not just me trying to sound pretentious as someone has stated..)
The museum encourages you to take photo’s and get involved with all of the fun artwork, there are even footsteps to stand on to make sure you take the best possible photo. We visited on a sunday afternoon and were pleasantly surprised as there were hardly any visitors around so we didn’t have to queue at all. You can easily spend a good couple of hours here as there is so much to do. It’s a great way to escape the intense Chiang Mai heat and see something completely different.
The admission fee is $10 for us tourist folk, much cheaper for locals but I’ll try to not let that annoy me.
I would very much recommend it, you’ll get a great facebook profile pic from it!
