3 Must See Attractions for Riverside in Chiang Mai
The Mae Ping River itself is a major attraction in Chiang Mai, home to countless restaurants, bars and boutiques. But there are some cultural treasures in Riverside as well.
For those looking for more than food and drink, here are three attractions in Riverside that you won’t want to miss:
Uncle Jack’s History Museum (Ket Karam)
Located in a renovated, 580-year-old house, the museum is dedicated to preserving the Lanna culture. On hand are a gramophone with a Dinah Shore album, vintage bank notes, tools and more. The vintage photo collection is considered the best in Chiang Mai. The museum holds free Lanna dancing classes for children on weekends.
Kawila Park and Monument
Kawila was a prince born in 1742 who played a major role in the rebuilding of Chiang Mai, and the monument stands in his honor. A small museum stands behind the statue.
Harris House Missionary Museum
Harris House has a rich history in Chiang Mai and it now serves as the first school museum in Northern Thailand. Largely devoted to picture galleries, the museum also serves as a learning center for people of all ages.
