The Tha Phae Gare is one of the best sections of the Old City Wall still intact. It's good for some picture taking. Here is where you would begin to stroll up and enjoy many restaurants and attractions. Sunday night, it is closed to traffic and becomes a big market that you shouldn't miss.

A good place to visit to experience the hustle and bustle of the area. Not a Must-visit, but it you are able to, its an interesting area.

This was a nice area to spend some time around either having a refreshment, feeding pigeons or reading a book. It is a very open space. The wall itself is a beautiful blend of red coloured bricks.

Its nice to see a bit of history, but its basically just two brick walls either side of a space that you walk through... Its not particularly noteworthy and certainly I don't see any reason why you'd want to out of your way to go there. We walked through it a few times to get to where we were going... More

I don’t know how you can review the Tha Phae Gate - it is one of the entrances to the old city. There are usually vendors selling bird seed if you want feed pigeons. You can see the water that surrounds old city like a moat. Plenty of shady trees and a metal/stone guide to what's inside the walls.

Thae Phar gate is a good starting point for looking at Chiang Mai City. From there it is very close to the Walking Street markets and many other attractions in Chiang Mai City. Not really that much to look at itself, but it is the most well known spot in town.

Tha Phae is a central point and one of the main meeting places in the city. It is right on the moat and there are many coffee shops, restaurants, and bars nearby. It is also where many of the Thai celebrations and festivities take place, especially on Sunday nights. In fact you can often go by Thae Phae gate and... More
