Chiang Saen

A calm, reserved town along the Mekong River, Chiang Saen entices those interested in early East Asian history. The site of an ancient 7th-century Thai kingdom, today the modernized town still holds landmarks and surviving ruins from this bygone era. It's no wonder, then, that top Chiang Saen attractions include ancient temples and Buddha statues. One of the most popular ways of traveling to and from Chiang Saen is by boat, so consider traversing the waters of the mystical Mekong to other towns and historical sites nearby. Whether you only want to go to Chiang Saen, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Thailand trip planner .
