You will passby when you enter Chiang Saen old city. Chiang Saen is worth visit and this wall is worth a stop and look aorund.
The wall was around different parts of the city so only saw some of it. The moat had it been full of water woud have looked impressive, but it doesnt fill up until the rainy season May - Sept

somewhere nearby the Temple, this is the ruins of Chiang Saen. Do dropby and have a feel. Till now, they do pray to some kind of spirits and you can see the mini house and meats to sacrifice for the spirit in the house.
great education our kids loved it we are traveling around for 2 weeks & have a full schedule booked with lots to see & do great photo opps here & very peaceful
Impressively constructed red brick walled town with moat and vertical wall on outside and sloping brick ramp onto walls. lots of trees growing in walls through bricks. Lots of plaques detailing each wall or old building but limited information explaining history at the sites
For the history buff. Also, being on the river, nice breezes and some fish restaurants. Some good but expensive textiles in the market outside the museum. The museum has never yet been open when I've been there. I look foward to seeing it one day.
