Wat Rong Khun is different from any other temple in Thailand, as its ubosot (Pali: uposatha; consecrated assembly hall) is designed in white color with some use of white glass. The white color stands for Lord Buddha’s purity; the white glass stands for Lord Buddha’s wisdom that "shines brightly all over the Earth and the Universe."...MoreCollapse
Mae Sai รs the northernmost district (amphoe) of Chiang Rai Province in northern Thailand. The town of Mae Sai is a major border crossing between Thailand and Burma.

The city was founded by King Mangrai in 1262 and became the capital of the Mangrai dynasty. However, it lost this status soon after to a new city built by Mangrai at Chiang Mai. Subsequently, Chiang Rai was conquered by Burma and remained under Burmese rule for several hundred years. It was not until 1786 that Chiang Rai became Chiang Mai vassal. After Siam or Thailand annexed Chiang Mai in 1899 Chiang Rai was proclaimed a province of Thailand in 1933. In 1432 during the reign of King Sam Fang Kaen of Mangrai dynasty (1402–1441) the Phra Kaeo, or Emerald Buddha, the most revered Buddha statue, was discovered in Chiang Rai when an earthquake split the Chedi at Wat Phra Kaeo of Chiang Rai City. The beautiful jade figu...MoreCollapse

About the owner: My wife and I are retired civil servants. My wife is an Associate Professor, who has had a long teaching career at the Sathit Chula Demonstration School, Chulalongkorn University. Her specialization is Teaching Social Studies and Environmental Education. I myself was a senior environmental expert, who for the last 9 years before retiring from the Civil Service, had been the Chief Inspector-General for the Environment at the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. My fields of specialization include Climate Change, Environmental Impacts of Development Projects , Environmental Education and Environmental Pollution Control.
Why the Owner Chose Chiang Rai:
We chose Villa Darakorn because it possesses many features that cannot be easily found elsewhere. Firstly, it is amid one of the very few top-ranked private botanical gardens in Thailand. Secondly, the Villa is in a unique location in Northern Thailand, where the weather is pleasant all the yea r round : in winter, the temperature varies between 18- 21 degree Celsius in the evening and 13-16 degree Celsius in the morning , from May onwards, there is hardly any need for air-conditioning. On the average, the real-time temperature is 2 degree Celsius below the temperature in Chiang Rai City Center. Thirdly, the Villa’s surrounding environments are endowed with mountain view , natural landscape and scenic beauty. My parents built this villa and its botanical garden in 1989. Now, the botanical garden is a mature one, which has a fine collection of over 300 tropical and exotic plant species from all over the world. In 2007 my wife and I acquired the property, which hitherto belonged to the family members. It took us 3 years to renovate the villa and to revitalize its botanical garden. Our Villa is in Ban Pang Or, Amphoe Muang, abou t 25 minutes driving to Chiang Rai City Center. Within 1 – 2 hours one can reach numerous places of interest. For example, the renowned White Temple (Wat Rong Khun) is 15 km. away from our property, and Khun Korn Waterfall, the highest waterfall in Chiang Rai, is only 4 km. away, the Royal Doi Tung Garden and the Golden Triangle can be reached within 1 ½ hours.
