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

I really enjoyed seeing the Three Kings Monument and although there isn't much to see or do, it's one of the most important landmarks in the Old City. The square is relatively small but there aren't any trees or shade near the monument so it's quite hot during the day unless there are clouds in the sky. We parked our... More

Located in the centre of old city. We rented a bicycle and it was a pleasant trip in the morning. There is a cultural meseum behind the statue which is nice to understand local history.

No trees to get a shade from the scorching sun. But when I went there the monument was very clean and well respected by the locals. They pray and offer flowers to it. Observed to take off your shoes or slippers in reaching the stairs towards the statue. Facing the monument in the left side is where a modern temple... More

One of the important landmark in Old city. You may start morning alms giving from here. Ample space to stop your bike and wait for the monk passby. Local people might stop and pray there as well. **Please respect the morning alms giving ceremony. (no flash photo and proper attire).
