One of the big advantages to living long term in a variety of places is that you get to explore some of the less touristy attractions. The urban forest at Huay Kaew Arboretum was just such a find!
Kathy and I spent a lovely hour walking around the peaceful and shady grounds.
It was kind of a whimsical place too, with lots of apparatus for children to play on.
I especially enjoyed the signs on the many trees, telling us their names, ages and reminding us to not forget their importance.
There were lots of informative signs too.
Arboretum admission is free and very close to an the busy Nimman area. So if you are in Chiang Mai and want a place to get a good walk in, visit the Huay Kaew Arboretum.
