If you take the road to Mae On and head for San Kamphaeng Hot Springs, there is a road going to the Alpine Golf course. Bear left and it will take you to a sacred place under a dam. There's a well there, the Thais think the water has magical powers.

Might not be a bad place to meet decent ladies, as per another thread.  From the website above:

The one on the left looks like she is enjoying the moment. The one on the right looks a bit embarrassed.

Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens and it's newish canopy walkway, 3.5 kms beyond Mae Sa elephant camp.

And then on to Mon Chem,  which is up in the hills beyond QSBG on the loop road back to CM, via Hang Dong.

Good luck!

Faces Restaurant and The Clay Studio Cafe.  A block into the old city from the south side of the moat.  A bit of quiet paradise in the midst of the insanity.  Highly recommend.

Sweet Garden, north of town near Raumchok Mall area.  Another oasis that you wouldn't know is there if you didn't go in.   Dont forget to buy a bag of fish food for ten baht.  Giant carp and catfish battle the geese for it.

Anna Farm and Eatery.  In Mae Sa, up the hills left from Mae Rim.  Very quiet because most people stop at the popular Sala Cafe before it.  Tucked into a nice corner of nature.  The honey toast is a meal in itself.  Turn left on leaving and in 100 meters you come to a meditation center that's not on maps with some really incredible nagas and sculptures.

Taweechol Garden, on the road to DoiSaket, about two km before DoiSaket. Look for the big orange roof on the left. The gardens are fabulous, with amazing topiary, orchids everywhere, bromeliads, a desertscape, peacocks, swans, ostriches, and deer that will eat out of your hand. Take a swimsuit and enjoy the pool. Get lost in the labyrinth. The museum has weapons and old soldiers' clothes, and hundred-year-old photos of Chiang Mai. They're planning to add KhanToke performances this cool season.

Don't let Prayuth see that, it will be closed and destroyed.

LOL.

The bricks are NOT old. The corner walls are a reconstruction using bricks from last century.

Also not possible to damage them merely by walking on them.

If they care so much, why don't they take more care of it? The excavation site is a disgrace.

The original bricks were used during WW ll to build roads by the Japanese during their occupation of Thailand ( or Siam as it was called then). Hence the reconstructions. I wouldn't mind seeing photos of the original wall around the city.
