This museum/memorial hall is worth a visit. It provides a good history of Mae Salong and an explanation of the Chinese history of this town. It is a stop worth an hour of your time.

For those interested in the history of this fascinating region, the hall and attached museum are a wonderful way to learn more about the Chinese soldiers who settled in this region in the 1960s. Captions are (mostly) in Chinese and Thai with some English translations.
