Getting to the Black House is simple - go to Chiangrai Bus Station and get the local bus from stand 5 or 6 (check with conductor) it costs only 20 Baht one way about half an hour. To return cross the road from where you got off the bus and flag a bus down to go back to Bus Station. I have included some photo's of a shortcut when you have got off the bus to get to The Black House - along the side of the wall are some planks - go across and follow the grassy path - it leads straight to the site. We were told of this by the bus conductor.
Entrance is free..
The Black House is closed between 12 & 1 pm but does have an arty exhibit and a small shop - + benches to wait out of the sun and clean toilets.
The small area is a collection of buildings filled with mostly skins / horns / shells - it can be walked around easily within an hour. The setting is lovely with lots of trees / shade / grass. The exhibits are a bit different and quirky - several of the buildings are closed but there is still enough open to get a good feel for the place. It would be ideal to do The White Temple and The Black Temple in one day to see how really different they are from each other.
