The City of Chiang Rai was founded in 1262 by King Meng Rai as the first capital of the Lanna Thai Kingdom. The Capital was later moved to Chiang Mai. Over 150 years (1786 to 1933) the region of Chiang Rai officially became a province of Thailand and it is one of 77 provinces in Thailand, even though Chiangrai is a small city but delightful one with a relaxed atmosphere, good value accommodation and some tasty cuisines and it’s also the logical base from which to plan excursions to the more remote corners of the province.
