to conserve and preserve the vanishing remnants of traditional Lanna arts and crafts, architecture and lifestyle.

Rampad is a pioneer in the revival of Lanna customs and art in Chiang Mai, and Monfai is the heart of her efforts.

The centre is both a living museum and venue for traditional Lanna weddings, traditional food markets, dance and music concerts and workshops.

Considering Monfai’s proximity to downtown Chiang Mai, it is incredibly tranquil with its leafy grounds and quiet location. The museum is full of handmade Lanna artifacts, and the passionate museum staff are more than happy to share their knowledge.

Monfai has a coffee shop and restaurant the Huan Jang Ngam, that serves the best coffees and delicious Lanna inspired food.
