This is an important monument and a central spot in Chiang Mai. There are museums and restaurants nearby, so check out the monument, visit a traditional museum, and grab lunch at Khao Soi Sirichai next door.

This was an interesting place. Outside beside the monument it is a nice area to spend some time relaxing. On the inside there is a good museum where you can learn all about the history of Lanna through information, photographs and costumes etc. It is worth spending even an hour in there to learn some new things.

There are so many better things to see and do in Chiang Mai, that this was an afterthought as we happened to walk by it one evening. Not sure what all the fuss is about to be fair, maybe we were missing something as to why this would be a popular place to visit other than for people who come... More

This is a wonderful place in Chiang Mai to go to with a lot of history of Siam. Thailand is a wonderful place to go and the people have a lot of love for their kings, have you ever wondered why? Go here to learn why the thai love for the king, you might be pleasantly surprised

We were able to comfortably walk to the Three Kings Monument. At the time we visited, it was closed due to renovations until mid-December so, if you are planning a visit in the near future this is the latest info as of Nov.24, 2916

The square outside was very beautiful during the nights of the Loy Krathong festival with a stunning array of lanterns display.

I used this place as a meeting point to meet up with friends. It's easy to find and pretty much in the center! I was here during the Yi Peng Festival and it was beautifully decorated with candles and lanterns. There was even a carousal with the late Kings pictures upfront!

Went there during the YiPeng/Loy Krathong Festival and they had lots of lanterns around the open space in front of the monument. Didn't get to see much else as I was told the place was closed. Or maybe I was there late. Well, at least I got to see the statue. Didn't get to read anything about it, but I... More
