"City Walls & Gates" City Walls Tip by Willettsworld

City Walls, Chiang Mai: 2 reviews and 6 photos

Chiang Mai's historical centre lies within the walled city (City is chiang in the northern Thai dialect while 'mai' is new, hence Chiang Mai - "New City"). Sections of the wall dating to their restoration a few hundred years ago remain at the gates and corners, but of the rest only the moat remains. The old walled city is virtually square measuring 1500m by 1600m.
