We came here twice. Just sat there and feed the pigeons. Pigeon feed 20 bahts per pack. Enjoyed live performance there by an old man playing his handmade drum sets.

This gate is very popular in ChiangMai. Every new year they celebrate Lantern Festival and this location is the one of the most popular place for joining the Lantern Show. It's a very nice experience for me to. Even here.

If you're around on the weekend, the night market at the gate is pretty cool. but the gate itself is nothing to write home about. if you miss it, it's no biggie.

We walked around to enter through that gate. Interesting to see but don't worry if you miss it, not the end of the world!

The Tha Phae Gate is a quick place to visit and take a few pictures. There is people selling food to feed pigeons and then also someone that sells a basket of baby pigeons you can release which is unique.

This is one of the central locations in the old city of chiang mai. Its a large open square. Often it is used for festivals or shows etc. It is a starting point for visiting the Sunday Walking Market . Go through the gate and enjoy the car free pedestrian walk on sunday evenings.
