Map of Chiang Rai1. Where is Tigerland Rice Farm located?

Tigerland Rice Farm is located in Ban Huay Khom, a Karen hilltribe village in Thailand's northern most province of Chiang Rai.

Our farm is about 25km from the Chiang Rai International Airport and the Chiang Rai city. Although a mere half hour drive from the city, you will be pleasantly surprised to find yourself transported into a serene farm countryside with little signs of modernity.

 

Pick up from airport to Tigerland Rice Farm2. How to get to Tigerland Rice Farm?
