Chiang Mai Sights
The Moat of Chiang Mai
One of the first things anyone notices in Chiang Mai City is the vast moat that runs around the old city in it's entirety.
Recently the moatway has had wider, pedestrian-friendly pavements laid and more tree's planted so as for people to walk around it. This is a bit of a white elephant though; as for most of the day, with hundreds of vehicles buzzing past you, the last thing you'd want to be doing is walking around the moat sucking in heat and fumes.
Chiang Mai Walls
For ancient Chiang Mai, the city walls would of given the inhabitants amble reasurrance in times of war and strife. The locals could man them and only a serious attack posed a problem.
