“In 1950 the US government sent military advisers to train tribal police along the border of Thailand. Among them was Harold Mason Young, son of American missionaries, who had been born in Burma. Young started helping injured animals, and his collection started getting visitors. The Chiang Mai provincial government set aside 24 acres (9.7 ha) at the base of Doi Suthep, the mountain immediately adjacent to Chiang Mai, and the facility was opened to the public in 1957. When Young died in 1974, the property was taken over by Chiang Mai Province. The zoo was expanded to its current 200 acres (81 ha) footprint, transferred to the Zoological Park Organization under the patronage of the King of Thailand, and opened as the official zoo of Chang Mai Province in 1977. ”

The exposition was extremely successful. There were a total of more than 3 million visitors including foreigners visited the Exposition. In 2008, the Cabinet, in order to extend the success of the exposition and to make use of the International Horticultural Exposition area for maximum benefit, has authorized the Highland Research and Development Institute (Public Organization) to manage the area since December 11, 2009 as a learning centre for botanical agriculture and the site for agro-tourism and culture at the international level of Thailand. Subsequently, His Majesty the King has graciously given the name of this area as “The Royal Park Rajapruek” since January 23, 2010.

At the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2006, the Royal Pavilion was the architectural highlight, the heart of the show, prominently positioned and attracting visitors symbolizing the way His Majesty the King remained at the heart of all Thai people. Built on a raised mound over 3,000 sq.m, the Royal Pavilion proudly displayed the glory of traditional Lanna architecture. The entire support structure was built, without a single nail, using wooden bolts as in the traditional method. Wiharn Sot or the swooping multi-tiered roof tiled was a basic feature of the ancient pavilion which represents the monarchy and distinguishes it from those of normal citizens. The Sao Luang or the royal pillars supports the roof of the pavilion, these huge wooden pillars is cylindrical in shape, printed in black and adorned with drawings in Thai motif and golden leaves. The gold motif on each royal pillar was different to show the various patterns of traditional gilded lacquer work of northern Thailand. Naban refers to the triangle shaped roof and entrance pillars perhaps the most stunning feature built by the 60 Sla, or Chang Sin Moo (10 types of Artistry) selected from each of the sub-district in Northern Thailand, who came together to construct the Naban. Apart from the structural aspects of the Lanna style, the Royal Pavilion also includes numerous decorative elements the reflects the wisdom and beauty of the Lanna architectural tradition, Cho Fahs, a bird-like decoration placed on the ends of the pavilion roof, take the form of the pointed-beak, Nok Karavek (a mythical Thai bird). The Nakkatan, or Kantuay (curved roof-ends) are curved in the shape of the Hasadi Link, or “great elephant bird” In additional to the gorgeous structure of the Royal Pavilion, visitors could observe the detail of various master piece of native Lanna artisan in Chiang Mai, Phrae, Nan and Lampang provinces, whose master pieces can be found throughout the structure. Many additional Lanna artworks surround the Royal Pavilion, such as the Prasat Fueng Khonfai, a castle-like sculpture representing “the Glory of Light”, the Phum Mo Dok (a Northern style in porcelain signifying loyalty) and numerous sculptured giants and elephants positioned as guards of the pavilion. The Royal Pavilion was a master piece of the prominent Lanna architect, Master Artisan Rung Chanthabun, who designed and supervised the construction.”

“Exploring the jungle is one of the must thing to do in Chiang Mai. The Wat Pha Lat Hike is an easy 40 minutes hike that starts at the end of Chiang Mai University and takes you to Wat Pha Lat Temple. Once in the temple if you are feeling energetic you can make your way to the top of the mountain and visit the iconic Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (2h more hiking). Make sure you have enough time to come back before it gets dark. ”
