Makham Pom Art Space

Our rating:

Makham Pom Art Space is a very interesting, well-designed and pleasantly laid-out arts complex, located a short ride across the Ping River to the east of Chiang Dao.





Rising from the surrounding paddy-fields the eclectic collection of buildings incorporates a cafe and coffee shop, gallery space, theatre, library, workshops and lecture room all scattered throughout an attractive garden dotted with various sculptures and art-works. The installations and sculptures are all made from recycled materials and include some surprising and imaginative creations including one reached by a wooden walkway across a paddy-field.

Depending upon the time of your visit there could be plenty going on here and you should be able to check on their Facebook page, but worst case, on a quiet day, it makes for an excellent lunch spot and you can avail yourself of their tempting coffee shop and cafe and find a perch on the terrace looking out over the garden.

It’s a short hop by bicycle from town or perhaps eight or nine kilometres total from Ban Tham, plus the surrounding farmlands and villages of the flat Ping Valley make for an ideal area to explore by pedal power.

Having a look around Makham Pom; grabbing a coffee and winding your way along the country lanes to Chiang Dao Riverside for lunch makes for a perfect morning out.
