Creative CNX: Think Park

Think Park, a mixed-use community space on the corner of Nimman and Huaykaew Roads, is the creation of Tan Passakornnatee – artist, entrepreneur and Thailand’s 34th richest person. Working on the project with his daughter, Varisa, the pair wanted to create a gallery space like London’s Tate Modern in Chiang Mai.

Set back from the main road, the park contains a maze of cobbled streets, shop fronts (purposefully built small to keep rent down for independent retailers), restaurants, cafes and bars. 70% of the area has been left open for exhibitions, markets, live music events and sweet statues like these – found outside the neighbouring Eastin Tan Hotel.
