CHIANG RAI
 
Chiang Rai is Thailand's furthest northern province, high 580 meters above the sea level. This is the land of ancient Lanna Kingdom founded by King Mengrai in 1262 A.D.
 
The statue of King Mengrai, the city founder, can be easily seen on the way to Mae Chan. This city used to be the first capital of Lanna Kingdom. Once, it was conquered by Burmese but was later brought back. It was proclaimed as a province during the reign of King Rama VI in 1910 A.D.

The land of Chiangrai is mostly covered with mountains and beautiful forests. It's most important river is Mae Kok, which runs about 130 kms. through the city. The Golden Triangle, Doi Tung, Chiangsan and Sob Ruak ancient cities are some of famous attractions here.
