Popular Attractions in Mae Wang District

Tha Phae Gate
4.4/5
2,072 Reviews
Historical Site
Part of the eastern wall, Tha Phae Gate is a highly intact city gate. Originally, the ancient city of Chiang Mai was surrounded by a wall about 2 meters high enclosed in red brick walls. Later, most of the buildings disappeared over the years. The surviving Tha Phae Gate became a very well-known attraction in Chiang Mai and a landmark. The red wall and blue sky are beautiful in the morning or at dusk when few people are around. Photographers from all over the world have come here to capture the beautiful scene of the city gate from different angles. On Sunday, the market stalls start here. When the market is closed, tourists and locals feed the pigeons in the square in front of the Tha Phae Gate. The environment is very comforting.
Wat Chedi Luang
4.6/5
1,276 Reviews
Temple
The Wat Chedi Luang, also known as Chedi Dragon Temple, is a particularly famous temple in the city of Chiang Mai. It is located in the heart of the ancient city of Chiang Mai. This square shaped Lanna style sacred stupa was built in 1411 and is nearly 80 meters high. A major earthquake once happened in Chiang Mai, and the spire of the stupa collapsed overnight. After the rebuilding of the stupa, the apex could not be completed because no one knew its original appearance. The stupa has four sides, only one side has steps, and the other three sides have been restored into slopes. The stupa is engraved with exquisite guardian spirit snakes on all sides, and there are six elephant sculptures on the tower. The building is magnificent. But the atmosphere is very natural and leisurely.
The Chiang Mai Night Safari
4.6/5
2,377 Reviews
Zoo
The Chiang Mai Night Safari is located at the foot of Doi Suthep, about 12 kilometers from the city of Chiang Mai. For carnivorous animals are active at night, the zoo opens night tours. Visitors can take a sightseeing bus to get a closer look at animals such as lions, tigers, bears, and wolves. Seeing these animals up close is a rare and exciting experience. Of course, the zoo is also open during the day. Activities include hiking in the Jaguar Trail Zone and going on the Day Safari. However, the highlights are still in the evening, when you can observe the night activities of carnivores. At night, you can also see performances such as the Tiger Show and cabarets.

Temple
The Phra Singh Temple, the Ssangyong Temple and the Great Buddhist Pagoda Temple are called the “Three Great Temples of Chiang Mai” and are located at the western end of the ancient city of Chiang Mai.

The decorations in the temple are splendid, with many exquisite wood carvings and murals narrating Buddhist stories. They are detailed, exquisite and lifelike and worthy of careful viewing. Phra Singh Temple are full of lush trees and rich with incense. There are many tourists here. If you visit here in the morning and evening during scripture time, you will see the monks chanting the Buddhist scriptures. They look very devout.
