“This is a great park to just relax, do yoga or exercise. There is free yoga lessons every morning at 9 a.m. (check Yoga in the park Chiang Mai Facebook group for updates), so if you are willing to get started in the yoga world you can just start from here. The evening is also great if you just want to relax after a long day exploring Chiang Mai.”

Buddhist Temple
“ The Wat Phra That Doi Kham is an attractive not much visited temple known for its 17 meters high Buddha image. The temple that was built towards the end of the 7th century sits on top of a forested hill just outside of Chiang Mai. The name of the Wat means golden mountain temple. The oldest structure of the Wat Phra That Doi Kham temple is the chedi (pagoda), that was constructed in the year 687. It shares many characteristics with the chedi of the better known Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple, that is found a little more to the North. Huge golden colored Naga serpents guard the stairs on both sides of the pagoda that is enclosed by a gate. The chedi enshrines a sacred relic of the Buddha. A local legend tells about two giants who lived in the Doi Kham area thousands of years ago and who were said to be cannibals. When the Buddha visited the area he convinced the giants to give up cannibalism and convert to Buddhism. The Buddha gave them a relic of his hair, that is now enshrined in the temple’s chedi. When the chedi collapsed in 1966 after heavy rain, local people discovered a number of Buddha images inside the damaged structure. Funds were then raised and the chedi restored. The courtyard The temple’s courtyard containing the chedi and the viharn is partly enclosed by a gallery lined with square green pillars decorated with golden flower motifs. The gallery contains numerous seated Buddha images in various postures seated on white pedestals surrounded by smaller Buddha images. A number of prayer boxes are placed inside the gallery. The courtyard contains large numbers of bells and very large gongs that visitors can strike. Several large warriors armed with swords similar to those at the Grand Palace in Bangkok and white lion figures or Singha guard the grounds. The viharn contains beautifully carved window panels, its roof is decorated with Naga barge boards. 17 Meters high sitting Buddha image A little bit away from the chedi and the viharn is the Wat Phra That Doi Kham temple’s most noticeable feature, an enormous sitting Buddha image displaying the Calling the Earth to witness mudra. The 17 meters high image on the hill top dominates the area and is visible from miles away. The image sits on white pedestal with a number of smaller Buddha images in front of it. Large warrior figures on both sides of the stairs guard the image. Naga snakes protecting the temple Lanna style ubosot The Lanna style ubosot or ordination hall next to the image is a very ornate structure with a multi tiered roof and Naga barge boards. On either side of the stairs are large golden colored Naga serpents that come out of the mouth of Makaras, a mythological water creature. The facade of the ubosot is particularly beautiful. Over the entrance door is a golden peacock motif on a very lively green background, over that is a beautiful mural painting. Due to its location out of town the Wat Phra That Doi Kham temple grounds are usually quiet. The temple’s setting on top of a hill contributes to the serene and peaceful atmosphere. From the viewpoints you will have great views of the surrounding area including nearby Royal Park Ratchaphruek. How to get to the Wat Phra That Doi Kham The Wat Phra That Doi Kham temple is located on top of a mountain South West of Chiang Mai city in Mae Hia sub district almost 10 kilometers from the town center. It is just North of Royal Park Ratchaphruek. The easiest way to get there is to hire a taxi. Most hotels in Chiang Mai can book one for you. Because of its location away from the city it might not be easy to find a taxi at the temple for the way back, therefore a round trip booking would be convenient. Agree on the price before setting off. Opening hours The temple grounds are open daily from 6 am until 5 pm. Entrance fee Admission is free.”

“Wiang Kum Kam Between the old and the present courses of the Ping River, 5 km south of Chiang Mai, the ancient city of Wiang Kum Kam was discovered. The city once prospered in a 3 km2 area that is now Tambon Thawangtan and Tambon Nongpung in Amphur Sarapee, and in Tambon Bahdad and Tambon Nonghoi, which are part of Amphur Muang. Documentary evidence has accounted for the royal lineage, legends, antiques, and ancient remains of Wiang Kum Kam. The archaeological findings indicate that there was an ancient settlement in this area before the time of Lanna, (before the mid 13th century). Archaeological evidence discovered at Wat Chang Kham, such as engravings, Buddhist images, and earthenware etc. were all in the Hariphunchai and Lanna styles, indicate that this area was once the locality of the Shaicob community (periphery) in the Hariphunchai region, which remained inhabited until the rise of the Lanna Kingdom. After King Mhangrai had established himself as the first king of Lanna, he was able to expand his empire by acquiring the city of Hariphunchai in 1281 A.D. King Mhangrai then established the city of Wiang Kum Kam during the years of 1286-1295. While governing Wiang Kum Kam, the King was actively encouraging Buddhism as a means of creating a peaceful society for his people. He established trade contacts with other neighboring regions, and enacted the ‘Mhangrai Sastra’ (King Mhangrai’s Law Code) as a guide for governing the citizens. Thus, King Mhangrai’s people began to prosper, especially in agriculture. They began to trade with other regions, and they demonstrated their faith in Buddhism by constructing Buddhist temples. In the year 1296 A.D. King Mhangrai established the city of Chiang Mai. He intended for Chiang Mai to become the center of the Lanna region, while keeping the southern city of Wiang Kum Kam as a twin capital city. Many stone inscriptions revealed some of the history of Wiang Kum Kam. The inscriptions indicate that Wiang Kum Kam was once a large community, equal in population to Chiang Mai at the time. This prosperity continued until a significant change occurred when the Ping River changed its course at a point where it flowed from the north to the west very near to Wiang Kum Kam. However, according to the evidence recovered from the soil layers of Wiang Kum Kam by the Fine Arts Department, it is clear that the destruction and abandonment of Wiang Kum Kam was not initially caused by floods. Rather, it was primarily caused by the upheaval of war, which occurred as Myanmar sought to acquire Chiang Mai and Lanna. Myanmar forcibly relocate the people of Wiang Kum Kam as slave labor. The city was left uninhabited. Gradually, the city was transformed into a forested area. Subsequently, the continuous floods and currents of the Ping River eventually covered the precinct of Wiang Kum Kam with 1-2 meters of sediment. The old area of Wiang Kum Kam had now become a farming and agricultural area. The largest expansion of people living in the area of the Wiang Kum Kam community occurred just ten years ago. As people arrived, they began planting Longan trees, and many did not realize that ancient relics were also buried in the area. The ancient remains of Wiang Kum Kam include much remarkable archaeology in the area of the Ping River. The Fine Arts Department has discovered 42 historical monuments both inside and outside the city periphery. Some areas have already become popular historical tourist attractions of Chiang Mai.”

“Enjoy the Original Chiangmai Khantoke Dinner Show The very first ever Khantoke Dinner Show was created right here at Old Chiangmai on 1970. It was started in order to showcase the traditional Northern Thailand, Lanna, culture. This has evolved over centuries and much of what you will witness here is timeless. Many of the dances were created in the last 150 years, the most recent in 1957 but they all have their origins in traditional dance that is very much older.”

“There are many things to buy. Recommend to go in the evening Before respecting the national flag When it was time to respect the flag, it was a very impressive event. People who walk to buy goods or vendors will stand up to respect the national flag at the same time. Like a standstill There are a lot of tourists, both Thai and foreign, visiting a lot of places to eat. If visiting the Wualai Walking Street, do not forget to visit Sri Suphan Temple, a temple that has the whole silver temple and is the first in the world. Very beautiful.”

“At Beer Republic we believe that it is time to get back to the roots of traditional based dishes; professionally done, tasty and definitely healthy. Naturally, this required months of research and effort to find many “time-forgotten” elements used in Thai cooking in order to re-introduce them to our modern day palates. We are excited to introduce you into what we have re-found, discovered and created. Because we are a draft beer house, we have also paired our dishes with our 16 import draft beverages to enhance each menu item’s flavor.”
