Tapeimen is a landmark of the ancient city of Chiang Mai and one of its entrances. The ancient city is a square, square, so there are gates on four corners. Tapeimen is the most famous, probably because it is the most complete existing gate in the ancient city. The whole wall is brick red, very primitive and simple, with a historical charm, so many tourists like to take photos here, even wedding photos, the effect is very good, especially feel. Tapeimen is not only a city gate with walls, but also a square. It often holds various celebrations and performances here. The day we arrived was the Flower Festival in Chiang Mai, so the whole square was decorated with flowers. Another unique feature of Tapeimen is that pigeons can be fed. Crowds of pigeons shake their wings in front of the brick-red wall background. It's a beautiful picture to imagine, but it's not easy to capture such a scene. Most of the time, visitors sit on the stone bench next to them to rest, while pigeons in twos and threes swing leisurely on the ground. There are many restaurants, massage shops and barbershops around Tapeimen. Of course, there are accommodation. It's 11 p.m. after massage, but it's very busy. There are many tugs and bicycles. There's no need to worry about traffic at all. Then there are many local people riding motorcycles to shuttle. In addition, Tapemen is also the starting point of the Saturday night market. As soon as Saturday evening comes, the long stall troop takes action, so it will be quite busy here.
The first time I went to Chiang Mai, I made some strategies before I went to Chiang Mai. I learned that Tapeimen is the center of Chiang Mai. TJR Boutique Hotel recommended by friends is quiet and comfortable. Tapemen impressed me most with the mango glutinous rice on the street corner, the super spicy meat meal, the Chinese-speaking drugstore landlady, the 7-11 massage everywhere, the Lila massage, and the night market which started at 5:00 on Sunday evening. You can go there once a year when you have the chance. Sky blue, clear water, the local people are also friendly. In addition, Fengfei Pig Foot Rice in Beimen is also good. This order is rather urgent and the price is more expensive. We will order it in advance later.
In Chiang Mai, this place is more suitable for living, playing and shopping. Traffic is very convenient and there are many foreigners. On Sunday, Tapemen Night Market must be visited. There are many kinds of things. They have a high cost performance ratio. They go early and are crowded with people late. Ningman Road, full of petty bourgeoisie, modern city, things are more expensive, but also more exquisite. Exchange is very convenient. If you take a short walk, there will be a place for exchange. You can exchange RMB directly. The juice is delicious, add something to it. Guess it's honey. Pineapple is very sweet. Half lounge and half rest, there is no plan for the next time. Well, there's massage everywhere in Quantai. If you have time, you should come every day, because the price is too suitable, the technique is gentle, and you can also come and click.
This year's Lantern Festival went to Tapemen. There are performances in the morning and evening because Chiang Mai and Kunming are friendly cities. It's good to have a festival at home. In the morning and evening, pigeons come to Tapemen to fly with pleasant scenery.
Tapeimen is the only relic left by the ancient city of Chiang Mai, which was built in 1296. When the ancient city of Chiang Mai was built, the walls made of red bricks stood two meters high and were very elegant. Unfortunately, due to the storms and the vicissitudes of time, the magnificent ancient city of Chiang Mai only left that gate as a shadow to be remembered by future generations. This historic gate, the white pigeon in the square, and the fountain of the river beside it. There is a night market in front of the door on Sunday evening.
The landmark building of Chiang Mai is just outside of a city gate, where pigeons can be fed and photographed. It is opposite the city gate. It is Tapei Road. It visited once in the day and once at night at a weekend night market. There are three small shops on Tapei Road, one horse killing chicken in five steps, one coffee shop in ten steps, the small shop is a little expensive. The horse killing chicken is quite comfortable. There are many temples and distributes. With mysterious and persistent strength. Although you don't know Buddhism, you can be quiet when you go in.
Tapeimen in the morning is pleasant, passing to see a girl in the pigeon flock, weekend night market is indeed huge, crowded, but not cheap imagination, may be speculated by foreigners into the commercialization of the outside, rather than to meet the original way of relaxing local weekend shopping, because basically can not see the local consumption, but can also see in the middle of the road. To the rich humanistic style of sketch, music, dance, a variety of handicraft... Retained things are still better than China, did not take any photos, visit better, fly Hongkong this morning, but this trip in Thailand really feel a lot of things, slowly learn to understand the humanities, understand the precious meaning of travel, language exchanges, cultural inclusion, you will really be infected, naturally go home and do as the Romans do, met many precious people, these precious people are really true. I like traveling, will stay in the place for a long time to experience, taught me how to harvest, their experience and experience really let me envy, although they all said that they envy me, can see from my eyes that they were pure, and curious about the world, dare to try to do what they want to do, more fortunate than they did, thank them, to leave, suddenly. If I find that I don't want to leave here, maybe I will come again and look forward to the next meeting.
Tapemen's history can be traced back to 1296 when King Menglai of the Lana Dynasty built Chiang Mai City. Tapei Tha Phae means "where the bamboo raft goes ashore" and refers to the gate outside the East Wall near Wat Saen Fang, Sacred Square Temple. Tapemen is now rebuilt in 1985-1986 based on historical records, including photographs taken in 1899. Feeding pigeons in Tapeimen Square is really interesting. You can snap a beautiful picture of the pigeons staying in your hands by gripping the crushed biscuits between your fingers. Haha, I'm so happy.
