Chiang Saen was one of the major cities of the Lanna Kingdom; originally called Wiang Hiran Nakhon Ngoen Yang it served as the capital before King Mengrai established Chiang Rai in 1262. The town was captured by the Burmese in the 16th century and sacked by King Rama I in 1803. Left as a ghost town for a hundred years, it was repopulated around 1900 but still hasn't really regained its importance. Traces of old double city walls and many other antiquities still remain in and outside the town.
