The 4th Colors of Doi Tung Festival at the Doi Tung Development Project in Chiang Rai is now welcoming visitors once again. Held under the theme “Inspired to Carry On”, the festival pays tribute to the royal initiatives of HRH the Princess Mother to improve the well-being of the local hill tribe villagers. The official opening ceremony, which took place on 2 December 2017, was presided over by M.L. Dispanadda Diskul, CEO of the Mae Fah Luang Foundation under Royal Initiative. Also in attendance were representatives from local government agencies, the Local Administrative Organisation and event sponsors.
Visitors to the festival will not only be able to enjoy experiential tourism through various activities offered by the Doi Tung Development Project. These include a visit to Doi Tung Royal Villa, the residence of the Princess Mother; the Hall of Inspiration that compiles the stories of the Mahidol royal family, all of whom dedicated their lives to improve the well-being of the Thai people; the Mae Fah Luang Garden, a beautifully landscaped garden covering an area of 30 rai which also contains the popular Tree Top Walk that offers a 360° panorama of the mountains; and the Mae Fah Luang Arboretum on Doi Chang Moob that boasts a large variety of rhododendron as well as a view of the Golden Triangle where three countries meet; and the Hill Tribe Market on a walking street located 1,100 metres above sea level, featuring over 80 stalls offering local food and handicrafts products from various ethnic hill tribe villages.
Visitors will also be able to create their own unique works of art at the Handicraft Workshop, with ceramic painting and handmade mulberry paper notebooks. And don’t forget to try the fun and unique ethnic formula-racing and stilt-walking activities.
