Don't make a special trip to see the statue, but the story is interesting to hear if you have a driver or tour guide to tell you about it. But not interesting enough to make a special trip to see. It is centrally located, so you will likely drive or walk by it as you are going through town. The... More

If you explore the city on foot, you'll doubtless chance upon the Square. When visiting the excellent Sunday Market you can drift off laterally past the overflow of stalls in the adjacent street and will arrive there. It's not particulary notable but a pleasant enough open area.

This is a beatiful statue. It is a quick trip, but it is right by the night market so once you see it you can do some shopping.

Visited here and walked around the old town. I found it pretty boring as there were no informariom regarding any of the history to the town which is unfortunate.

A nice "walk by" and a good distraction from all the Temples. But very little explanation on premise.

This is a wonderful square on which the three stately statues stand. The three depict the 3 local kings who swore in blood and created Chiang Mai. In the centre is the Kind of Chiang Rai and on his left stands the King who is also considered the father of Thai Language.

Went here as part of the tour, given it a 4 star because there's a large plaza in front of the monument to whizz around on the Segway!!!

I would describe this area as being close to the heart of the old city. The monument itself is OK, but it is more the general area that is interesting. Wandering around the old city, having the occasional coffee or cold drink, is a wonderful way to spend a half a day at least. There are so many restaurants, bars... More
