ThaPaeGate-Gate
May 25, 2016

Chiang Mai prides itself as a historical city, and at 720 years, it is one of the oldest constantly inhabited cities in Thailand. The old square mile moat has five gates, with the most well-known, and distinctive one being Tha Pae Gate, the only gate which still has a door…even though the latest version is less than 30 years old. The public square in front of Tha Pae has long been used for public events and the area was the first to have been developed, as tourists began to pour into the city three decades ago. Many urban shops flourish around Tha Pae Gate with Tha Pae Road leading from the Governor’s Residence by the river straight to the iconic gate.
