The area around this gate is a park-like setting. Feed the pigeons, watch the people, look at the gate, and move on.

There is really nothing there. Just people walking around and through this gate. It is just a tourist landmark of Chiang Mai.

It is 'centrally located and is convenient to use as a landmark for meeting people, orientation bearing and access to everything catered to tourists. It is also the heart of old city where you can feel the buzz of tourists and local vendors, especially on Sunday evenings from 430pm (vendors begin their... More

Thapae Gate is the busiest entrance to the Old City through the moat. There are always vendors or some kind of celebration here. Recently there was a colorful celebration of Chinese New Year. A few weekends ago, the Flower Festival parade passed by here.Great people watching! Don't drive here. Take an Uber or a tuk tuk or songtauw.

This place is not only a historical place, but also gathering spot for many events happening in Chiang Mai. We just seen some events from 2nd annual China Chiang Mai festival, but it also hosted Jazz Festival and many big sport events are shown here on big screen.

We found the gate after walking through the Sunday market. We had to come back to visit during daytime and we could enjoy some pictures and feed the pigeons. Definitely a place to check out and stop by to visit and know about the Chiang Mai History.

Used to have a really good market there on Saturday which was great - kind of an empty area now which is a shame.
