The municipality of Chiang Mai covers Si Phra Singha, Ya Chang, Chang Chang, Wat Gate and Pa Tan. It also covers parts of Chang Phuak, Suthep, Sun Pung, Nong Hoi, Tha Sala, Nong Pa Phuang and Fa Ha.
Chiang Mai has become a modern city. The city offers many attractions for thousands of foreign visitors. Its historical significance comes from its strategic location near a southern branch of the ancient Silk Road, long before the modern influx of foreign visitors. The city has been a center renowned for its crafts, parasols, jewelry (especially silver) and wood carvings.
