Visiting Enchanting Chiang Rai University Park after Our Drive Back to Chiang Rai from Mae Sai in North Thailand

Filed Under (Chiang Rai, North Thailand, Travelling) by Janet on 28-08-2008

We’re now back in Chiang Rai after more than an hour’s drive from Mae Sai here in North Thailand, & our Thai friend just drove us to the amazingly enchanting Chiang Rai University Park.

Our Thai friend loves this Park alot & she used to often come here during her university days to walk & pinic with her bunch of friends! And upon arrival at this Park, she runs around so excitedly & happily starts showing us around!

Below are 2 huge replicas of Thai Inserts in the Park – what uniqueness!!

We’re now looking at the below Thai Lanna Zodiacal Banners of the late Thai Royal HighnessPrincess Mother (Srinagarindra), which stands at the main entrance to the Park.

Well, Chiang Rai was the hometown of the late Princess Mother, to whom the Thai people fondly calls “Somdet Ya“. Instead of the title “Queen Mother”, the title “Pincess Mother’ was given to her by her son King Bhumibol Adulyadej cos her husband (Prince Mahidol) was never King & only had the title of a Prince.

As she was actively involved in numerous charitable activities, the Princess Mother was beloved & highly respected in Thailand as a person with good morals & integrity – the Princess Mother passed away in 1995 at the age of 94.

A closer view of the Thai Lanna Zodiacal Banners of the late Princess Mother – The zodiac sign of the Princess Mother is the Rat & it’s shown at the top of each of the 4 Banners, with the animals of the other zodiac signs displayed too :

Below elegantly sculptured tablet shows the descriptions of the Thai Lanna Zodiac Sign & Zodiacal Banners of the late Princess Mother in Thai langauge :

And the following is another tablet with the same descriptions in English, but the wordings are kinda small & blur :( (

We start walking the Park, which is adorned with many beautiful lamp posts of elegant sculptures of Garuda, the mythical bird from the Lanna period.

Then we see plants shaped in different animals - cool :

And cos Mom & Dad are a little tired from walking, we have them rest in one of the Pavilions near the Park entrance before our Thai friend, my brother & I, continue on our walk – now approaching the Water Fountain of the Park :

The Park is really beautiful, with very neatly grown trees & plants – too bad it’s not December now cos then I’m sure we’ll see many many colorful flowers blooming everywhere (just like what I saw last December when I visited Chiang Mai).

Beautiful Palm Trees

And here below we see a gorgeous Thai Lanna style Pavilion :

This Pavilion is big & it’s got really intricate designs & colored Thai banners on its ceilings!

Now, there’re huge beautiful empty grass patches infront of the Lanna Pavilion which overlooks a large tranquile Lake & the views from here is simply spectacular :

Lots of enchanting trees & bushes, & I’m amazed by how big this Park is!!

Enchanting Trees

And cos we’re worried that Mom & Dad are waiting too long for us while resting at the Park entrance Pavilion, & that they may be attacked by mosquitoes cos of the hot weather, we decide to quickly end our walk.

Along the way back to meeting Mom & Dad, there’s another beautiful garden with a Statue of the late Princess Mother built to her true height :

Below are 2 Stone Memorial Tablets with Thai inscriptions :

We meet up with Mom & Dad & luckily they say they’ve got no mosquitoes bites!!

And I shall now leave you my following Slideshow which contains the rest of my photos taken in enchanting Chiang Rai University Park :

 

Well, it’s really nice coming here today & we’ve to thank our Thai friend for bringing us here to see such lovely & enchanting natural beauties of Chiang Rai here in North Thailand!!
