Following the passing of King Bhumibol, there has been a renewed interest in the royal projects around Thailand. The TAT has produced a book about 70 of the most popular and accessible of these projects which are open to tourists. Starting this month, I will be visiting many of these projects. However, please be warned, many do not have easy access by public transport and you may need to rent a car or driver. The following are the photos that I tweeted live from day one of my trip to Chiang Mai. By the way, I came here on the overnight train and you can see those trip photos here.
The restaurant at the Royal Rose Garden has a really good menu using organic produce from the Royal project pic.twitter.com/tex6P1TymG— Richard Barrow in Thailand (@RichardBarrow) December 12, 2016
The temporary show at MAIIAM in Chiang Mai is by Kanin Lertchaiprasert. His solo exhibit is here until 6 February. Very thought provoking pic.twitter.com/EDxVdTuS6Z— Richard Barrow in Thailand (@RichardBarrow) December 12, 2016
