Nan Riverside Art Gallery

Our rating:


A slightly surprising find – it’s rather in the middle of nowhere – is the nicely laid out Nan Riverside Art gallery.

Attractive, well maintained gardens host some sculptures, as well as a coffee shop, souvenir store and spacious, two-storey, principal gallery building. The gallery shows paintings by local artists and though we’re no expert we found some offerings to be of very good standards. Although it’s no Baan Dam, the spacious gardens are pleasant to wander around and full marks for the initiative of setting something like this up in the middle of nowhere and giving local artists the opportunity to showcase their talents. You might not travel 40 kilometres there and back just for the gallery, but it could be combined with Tham Pha Tup Forest Park, halfway between here and Nan city and certainly makes a good stop on your way to or from Pua on our Nan motorbike loop itinerary.
