Art in Paradise is a fun and creative museum experience for Chiang Mai residents and visitors. I heard about it when it opened back in July, but then promptly forgot about it until I had to entertain a friend from Bangkok.
Korean Jang Kyu Suk set up this “illusion or 3D art” museum, along with 14 professional artists from his homeland to create exciting and quirky paintings. Plan at least a couple of hours to take pictures, and get creative.
If tuk tuk or red truck drivers do not know where it is, then them you want to go to the Shangri-la Hotel (it’s on Chang Klan, but no need to say the road). Once at the Shangri-la, keep walking for another minute and then you see it on the same side.
There are different themes or zones, like the underwater zone. But keep in mind sometimes you have to take off your shoes before you participate in a landscape.
Also some pictures look best if you stand on the red dots you will see on the floor. It’s all about creating that perspective or “illusion.”
But I really liked discovering the mirror in the Egypt zone. I don’t think folks understood what it was for. In fact, it took us a little bit to figure it out and then it was hilarious.
Okay. I’ll spare you the other pictures. Go with a charged battery! They have bathrooms/WCs/washrooms along the way, so don’t fret (really soft TP too). Coffee shop and food as well. Did I forget anything else? Here’s their link.
