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.
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.
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.
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.
The shopping trip in Chiang Mai I used to live near Chiang Mai Men. I really regret that I haven't been here on foot. This morning, a person, a mobile phone, would like to walk where I want to go. It's really not easy for the wall built in 1296 to be so well preserved. Taking pictures under the wall will have a sense of traversing. It seems that I have returned to that era again. I don't know if it will have a sense of substitution. Pigeons are Tapemen's most perfect partner, as long as you come here, you will be intimately touched by pigeons, always thinking that the morning should be relatively quiet, I did not expect that there are still so many people, so many pigeons. You can buy 20 baht pigeon feed and feed the pigeons safely. The pigeons here are not afraid of the crowd at all, but will go to the crowd. It's really amazing. Today's weather is super fine, so I can enjoy watching the sunshine and looking at the crowd and pigeons, but I'm leaving soon. I'm reluctant to part with it. Next time I'll go to the UGO restaurant across the street and enjoy Tapemen slowly. I feel sure the evening will be beautiful too.
The ancient city of Chiang Mai is small and surrounded by rivers. It has been in disrepair for a long time and no longer exists. Tapeimen is the only relic left by the ancient city of Chiang Mai. It was built in 1296. At that time, the walls made of red bricks were up to two meters high. It was very elegant. Unfortunately, as a result of war, storms and years of devastation, the magnificent ancient city of Chiang Mai at that time only the gate as a shadow is remembered by future generations. In front of this historic city gate, there is an open square where countless pigeons play and feed with tourists. Folk artists play and sing to attract tourists to stop. Tapeimen is in the flourishing area of the city center. After dinner, it walks here and takes a picture with the vicissitudes of the old city gate in the sunset. If it coincides with the March Water-splashing Festival, the scene of mutual Water-Splashing and mutual blessing in the river is quite spectacular. The Thai Water-Lantern Festival in November or so, the scene of the Water-Splashing lanterns around the river has a special interest.
Come on December 20, 2017. Tapeimen is the east gate of the ancient city of Chiang Mai. It is the main entrance and exit of the ancient city. It can be traced back to 1296 AD at the earliest. But after reading the introduction, we know that the door in front of us is actually a "fake antique" rebuilt in 1985, and it has only been more than 30 years. Apart from the relocation of the location, the Tapeimen is now basically old, so it is still a landmark of the ancient city of Chiang Mai. From morning till night, the square outside Tapei Gate was very busy. During the day, there were many pigeons and many new couples taking wedding photos here. In the evening, there are some street performers and students dressed up to gather here. Of course, both day and night, tourists will come here to take pictures. If you come to the ancient city of Chiang Mai, it is necessary to take photos and punch in.
