Park
“In 1950 the US government sent military advisers to train tribal police along the border of Thailand. Among them was Harold Mason Young, son of American missionaries, who had been born in Burma. Young started helping injured animals, and his collection started getting visitors. The Chiang Mai provincial government set aside 24 acres (9.7 ha) at the base of Doi Suthep, the mountain immediately adjacent to Chiang Mai, and the facility was opened to the public in 1957. When Young died in 1974, the property was taken over by Chiang Mai Province. The zoo was expanded to its current 200 acres (81 ha) footprint, transferred to the Zoological Park Organization under the patronage of the King of Thailand, and opened as the official zoo of Chang Mai Province in 1977. ”

Historic Site
“Tha Phae Gate or the former name of Chiang Rai Kor Gate It is the eastern gate and is one of the 5 inner city gates of Wiang Chiang Mai. Currently, it is the only city gate with gates. But Thapae Gate is a new construction. Not ancient in any way Tha Phae Gate has been reduced in size and height because of the different environment in the past.”

Buddhist Temple
“This is quite a must-go place in Chiang Mai, which means crowds spoil it a little bit. But actually there is a moment when this place actually recovers its uniqueness, it is right after the sunset. At night Doi Suthep is an amazing place to feel the importance of the place. Tell us to go there at night, we will never say no!”

Bar
“Part of a complex of open-air bars at the corner of Th Ratchaphakhinai and Th Ratwithi, Zoe is where backpackers come to sink pitchers of cold Chang, sip cocktails from buckets, rock out to cheesy dance-floor fillers, canoodle and swap travel stories until the wee hours. There are a few Indian food places between the bar joints.”
