Chiangsaen was an old city and used to be the greatest city before merge with Chiangrai. Many century ago, this city considered the forefront of trading post between the three countires: Thailand, Myanmar and Laos. Now only the ruin of the city wall, lots of temples scattered around the city and mixed with other newly created buildings. So sad because it should have been well preserved than this..It should have been like Ayudhaya City (The former Capital city of Siam-Thailand). Anyway, the place is still nice to visit & roaming with bicycle or strolling along Maekong River and the town. I recommended to go only you will visit Golden Triangle as well ( it's very near each other, just a few kilometres) because nothing much to see in Chiangsaen alone. If you do not have time, skip it.
