Baan Tawai is a traditional woodcarving village in the southern districts of Chiang Mai, with many skilled craftsmen & fascinating showrooms. Today it is popular with tourists and exporters, but it has long been the place for locals to buy stylish furniture and artworks.
Whether you choose to by some souvenirs here, or simply enjoy the beauty of skilled workmanship, this is a relaxing way to spend an hour or two away from the more crowded attractions of Chiang Mai.
