Apart from the spectacular temples, visitors come to Thailand mostly to admire the natural sceneries of the parks, one of which is Singaha Park in Chiang Rai City.

Singha Park is the property of the owner of Singha beer group in Thailand. Singha Park is not a vibrant and splendid place, but the clarity of nature, vegetation, fresh air and the spaciousness of a vast farm are the only feature you will feel at Singha. You will surely scream in surprise when you see thousands of green tea beds lined up in steps like stretching to the horizon and vast purple lavender fields on the prairie.
The houses and cafes follow the classical European architecture scattered on the farm will make you fascinated by the scenery identical to the Western countries. With its wonderful natural surroundings of green tea fields, classic European architecture, fresh air and peaceful scenery, Singha Park is an extremely ideal place for one to relax and immerse in the wonderful nature.
