Tung Park and Koam - the Old Prison

Almost just across the street from the PDA Hill Tribe museum is Tung Park. The park stands on the land that used to be the town prison. You can still see some of the walls, guard towers and a few buildings from the old use. Now, it's a park and there is also a long wooden building displaying the costumes of the various hill tribes.

The park was created in the late 1990s to celebrate the king's 75th birthday. It underwent extensive renovations in late 2012 in preparation for the city's 750th birthday.
