You’ll be amazed at the incredibly detailed woodwork found here. From antique wood, gold leaf wood, wood strips, and other beautiful pieces of art; you’ll find it here. However, the best part of visiting this place is being able to watch the artists demonstrate how they make a wide assortment of handicrafts.

Choose from various demonstrations such as wood merchandise, lacquerware, carpentry, cultural shows, and more. They are simply fascinating to watch, especially considering how woodwork is a highly specialised skill that has been passed down from one generation to another. The local craftsmen are among the best woodcarvers in the world!

If you find a large piece of furniture that you just can’t forget about, they can arrange for professional packing and transportation to your address overseas. There are so many beautiful large pieces that will make a great addition to your home. In fact, you can easily decorate an entire apartment with the sheer variety of dacor available here without breaking the bank.

Aside from wooden handicrafts, Baan Tawai Village is also a great place to find antiques, silk products, candles, incense, handmade soaps, oils, earthenware, bamboo products, lamps fames, wall art, and so much more. This is where shops from Samui, Phuket, and Bangkok source many goods but it’s sold in Chiang Mai straight from the source at much lower prices.

The village is found just off Hang Dong Road, around 12 kilometres south-west of the city centre.
