Monument Landmark
In the center of town stands Three Kings Monument, a bronze sculpture signifying the alliance between the three kings of northern Thailand to design the city. This popular monument is an icon of Chiang Mai and is spiritually important for locals. Be sure to remove your shoes before approaching the attached shrine, as the locals do when making devotional offerings, and be careful of the hot floor around midday. If you have time, also check out the city's art and cultural center while in the area.

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.

  • Nice historic monument of chiang mai. Hipsters area I love it
  • What you see is what you get. The Three Kings are a neat cultural icon of Chiang Mai. Come here and take a selfie before seeing the Lanna Folklife Museum across the road.
  • Nice square and buildings with the statue of the 3 Kings as a nice centrepoint. Worth a couple of minutes of your time to take photos..
  • Just a square with a statue of the 3 founding kings of the old city. Opposite to the old court room turned culture museum which is well worth a visit. Close to modernized cafes, and it is withing walking distances to many beautiful Buddhist temples and massage parlors.
  • The place have a open air space and it would be more nice if the weather was cool windy
