What people are saying:

Chiang Saen or also been known as a ghost town because still can’t be described as ‘booming’ to this day. As you explore the area, you’ll see ruins of the old ramparts and other glimpses of a bygone era.Sometimes it feel a little bit scary.But still u can enjoy the other things.

    Wish we had longer to explore

    Only a brief visit here, time was tight on our tour and sadly we left feeling we needed much more time to look around and really explore this area. Definitely next time!

    As expected

    Thankful for other trip advisor reviews so I knew what to expect. Some interesting history. Some big piles of stones. Glad we didn't spend long there.

    Very interesting

    I really would liked to have spent more time here as it was unexpected how extensive the ruins are. If you are interested in temple ruins try and schedule some extra time....
