Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited at about 10 in the morning when the temple, which is at the heart of this ancient town, was pretty much deserted. We were able to wander at our own pace, undisturbed around the ruins. The temple itself is being restored, and murals of everyday village life being painted on the walls, were quite absorbing. I much preferred this place to the more frequented temples we saw.

Nice place to visit during the day. The best way is to hire a 45-minute horse carriage tour with a broken English local guide & driver.

Lots of 14th. Century ruins . These are spread out over a large area and are easily accessible by horse buggy. A lot of known and unknown history of this area. Do it early because it does get hot.

Ancient city with wreckage of temples to pagoda. Not much to see but the sourrounding was great. Good to take a ride on bicycle or horse carriage for a relaxning afternoon.

We visited Wiang Kum Kam, our first stop of a circular cycle tour from Chiang Mai. A lovely restful area full of local colour with an interesting history attached.

So, at first we thought "may be a bit blah" but actually was quite interesting to reflect on how fact becomes legends and then disappear into thin air until one day the veil lifts and the legend becomes fact once again. The horse and carriage ride around was a great way to see it, ruins mingled with local living. The cost only 300bhat to enter, please tip the horse and driver at the end, and only 150bhat for a photo in a nice frame. Great way to wonder through the imaginations of the mind and quirks of history for an hour or so.

Waing Kum Kam is the site of an ancient city which was the capital before Chiang Mai. It was abandoned many years ago due to flooding as it was too close to the River. In my opinion, the fascinating thing to do is to explore the fields that surround the current temple and see the many (sometimes hidden away) ruins of temples and other buildings. The floors and are very often quite intact. Some maps and signage will help with make for a good exploration of the area. The current temple is very beautiful and there is the opportunity to relax there at one of the cafes. An interesting day out away from Chiang Mai city.

The historic capital that was abandoned due to flooding, it covers a huge area with multiple wats, chedas and civil buildings. Most are only foundations now yet they still hold the imagination with what once was. Very well kept with information panels by each of the sites giving you an idea of what used to be.

This attraction is definitely worth a visit. The ruins of an ancient city that was buried and forgotten until fairly recently. You will want to bike or ride a horse drawn cart to get around the complex easily.
