    Art Bridge Chiang Rai

    Shop for local and regional artwork

    • ขาช้อป

    Art Bridge Chiang Rai is located right next to – you guessed it – a bridge that crosses Nong Khua Kara Lake. Take in the gallery’s minimalistic, nature-inspired exterior, which is a work of art in itself. Inside, you can view a wealth of artwork in various mediums. Most of the displayed artwork is created by local artists.

    Art Bridge Chiang Rai is a great place to shop for paintings, sculptures or carvings. If your travel budget doesn’t quite include a unique work of art, you can stop by the onsite souvenir shop to pick up something a little more affordable, but just as beautiful.
