Singha Park Chiang Rai (สิงห์ปาร์คเชียงราย) Thailand #SMSnotes

Formerly known as Boon Rawd Farm, Singha Park was once a family-run farm, owned by Boon Rawd Brewery. The founding family produces Singha Beer, a famous beer from Thailand. The land on Singha Park was where the family once grew barley to produce their beer. Singha beer was Thailand’s first brewery beginning in 1929. The company is now run by the third and fourth generations of the Bhirom Bhakdi family. The word Singha means lion, which is the logo for Singha beer. The King of the jungle is considered a powerful beast in Thai and South-East Asian mythology.

Singha Park is located in Mae Kon countryside, 12kms from Chiang Rai city. The park features flower gardens, lakes, meadows, plantations, orchids, and vegetable crops. If you feel like a peaceful day out away from traffic and noise, Singha Park is the place to visit. Its gardens are well maintained with blossoming flowers and vast green landscapes.

There are plenty of quiet places to relax and enjoy the fresh air in peace. The agro-tourism park works closely with schools and colleges in Thailand. College students come here to learn and make up a large percentage of visitors during the week. The weekends are popular with Thai families and cyclists, who come to enjoy the scenery. The whole park is enormous, consisting of different zones to explore. All of which you can enjoy within the harmony of nature.

At the end of the day we ate at their restaurant, the views at the restaurant are just amazing. The food was very authentic northern and tasted great too. The trip to this farm was memorable and would go again when given the chance.

There are many places to see and enjoy at Singha Park. Walk around the gardens, and landscapes along the pathways provided. Or take a picnic and stroll around the lawns. If you would like to explore more, there are bicycles for hire where you can follow the many bike trails. Along the cycle paths, there are information maps. The maps also inform you of the length of the ride and the level of difficulty of each route, as some are a little hilly. By taking the electric tram you can relax and enjoy the scenery without much effort. The tram stops at different spots giving you time to explore and walk around in nature at your own pace. Trams run every half hour around the park where you can hop on and off.
