Huai Tueng Thao Sculpture Park is a popular scenic location.
Before the sun began to cast its scorching rays over Chiang Mai, we took a transport over to Huai Tueng Thao Sculpture Park. Huai Tueng Thao Sculpture Park is indeed a hidden gem nestled amidst the lush landscapes of northern Thailand. It has beautiful mountains as backdrop and located along the Huay Tueng Thao Reservoir. We caught sight of bamboo huts right along the reservoir for people to relax in while enjoying the view!
The heart of the park has magnificent collection of sculptures which straight away caught my attention. The largest and tallest were the family of King Kongs with stairs allowing visitors to climb up. Standing on the palm of one of them, I could see sculptures of varying designs scattered across the plains. These animal sculpture creations were beautiful on its own way, seemingly each having a story to tell. I marveled at the craftsmanship and creativity that had gone into crafting these works of art.
Further down the rocky road, one could see a lone straw windmill and a flock of sheep in their enclosure. The sight instantly reminded me of a fairytale scene, right out from a fairy tale story and I could not wait to get up close with those sheep. Paying a small fee would allow you to feed them and they can be rather noisy.
In conclusion, Huai Tueng Thao Sculpture Park is definitely one of the top interesting places in visit in Chiang Mai. It is a perfect place for family gatherings or an outing with a group of friends. Aside from the opportunity for bonding, this is also a place where you could take tons of photos with various animal sculptures of your choice too!
