When visiting Chiang Mai in the northern part of Thailand, my friend and I found a wonderful 3-D museum called "Art in Paradise". Both my friend and I love to take photos and we spent hours there. I saw people of all ages having a great time at this unusual museum. I will continue to visit the 3-D optical illusion museums as much as I can in the future. As a matter of fact I am going to be seeking them out and may plan a trip around visiting them as I had such a fantastic time.
In the photo where it looks like I am on the cover of National Geographic magazine. I am sitting on the floor up against the wall. Part of the painting is on the floor where I am sitting and the cliff is on the wall behind me. If you look closely you can see a crease where my right hand is placed.
There were so many funny pictures/ optical illusions that it's hard for me to choose which photos to share in this article. I will try to choose some of the ones that I thought were more interesting and or realistic looking. I have many others that I will be sharing on social media or perhaps in another post down the road.
The cost of visiting Art in Paradise is very reasonable in my opinion. The admission price for an adult is 400 baht which is currently equal to a little more than $11.00. Children cost only 250 baht which is about $7.00. This museum is currently ranked number 5 out of 235 things to do in Chiang Mai. Most people say they like to spend 2 to 3 hours there if you like to take photos like me you might want a little more than three hours.
Their are similar museums located in Bangkok and Pattaya which are also in Thailand. This museum is a good place to visit with someone, but you could take pictures of yourself with a tripod or ask people to take your photo. The staff were very helpful to us at this location.
And finally here is my Cover shot on the magazine "TIME":
Thank you for visiting my little blog. I'm doing a lot of traveling lately so it's not easy to keep up with processing photos and blogging. I plan to take a break and will hopefully catch up then. Although I may have to revisit Bangkok and Pattaya now that I know they have one of these museums there ;). I hope you all have a fantastic week!
