It's a great place to go to see how paper and umbrellas are made and decorated, as well as being able to get anything else you want painted (e.g., clothing, book, cel phone case, laptop, pocket knife, whatever). Also, this should be just one of...More

Good to see the art of making paper umbrellas, which is rapidly facing decline after the introduction of modern umbrellas. The skilled artisans are really good in making the umbrellas, as well as hand painting them with various themes like nagas, dragons and elephants!

Its great pleasure to see the processing and making the umbrellas. After completing the umbrellas they also sell there.

I thought this would be a lot more organised. Don’t know if I arrived at the wrong time but nothing seemed to be happening. A couple of people doing the odd thing but not much. I would like to see the various steps of making...More

It's amazing that these women don't cut themselves as they are making the bamboo umbrellas. It's special to actually see them making and painting the umbrellas. Artists on site will paint whatever you want on your phone, purse, shirt, or whatever. Shop while they finish...More

On our way into Chiang Mai we stopped at a few outlets, this being the first and I was surpised at how enjoyable it was. The umbrellas are made in sections and you can watch the hand made process as it makes it way through....More

What an amazing place! OK so it's set up, to a certain extent, for tourists but nevertheless it is a fascinating place to visit and see the whole process of making beautifully decorated umbrellas. Each "station" shows each individual process in the manufacture of the...More

What a riot of colours. We just missed the parade, but there was still plenty to see. From locals creating their own magical designs, vendors selling all things Thai and of course it would not be a festival without the eats. Everything you can imagine,...More

The crafts are scattered in a large area, your driver can take you directly to the parasol making [we did not go there] and the silkworm factory. In July is better to have somebody take you directly because is raining... More

Easy to get to by Tuk Tuk. You could arrange for the driver for say 3 hours to take you to each craft centre and wait for you. Would be cheaper than arranged tour and more freedom to stay as long or as little as you... More
