700 years of history

Chiang Mai, or New City, was founded by King Mangrai in 1296, its location on the Ping River and on the trading routes contributing to its enduring prominence. Faded rose-red brick walls and a tree-shaded moat surround the city, classic architecture defines the temples, and distinctive arts and crafts descend from earlier eras.
