About Ancient City Of Chiang Saen, Chiang Rai

Situated within the province of Chiang Rai, Chiang Saen is a small district and is also one of the oldest settlements in the Kingdom of Thailand. It is located along the Mekong River. This area is quite interesting to visit as you can see the contemporary residences peeping themselves through the ancient structures that still grace the city. One of the World Heritage sites, this district. Many of the finest buildings of these bygone times are, sadly, little more than dilapidated ruins poking forlornly through a green cloak of vegetation, but there are still many fine examples of preserved or renovated temples and stupas that reflect the architectural history of Chiang Saen. These structures reveal the external influences on building styles during the city's past, such as Khmer, Singhalese, Lao and Sukhothai forms, that pertain to the different periods in Chiang Saen's history.
