Chiang Mai Travel Guide


Chiang Mai Travel Guide

Also known as the “The Rose of the North”, and with an enchanting location mostly on the west bank of the Ping River, the city and its surroundings are blessed with stunning natural beauty and an uniquely indigenous cultural identity.

Located approximately 700kms from Bangkok, Chiang Mai is the principal city of northern Thailand and capital of the province of the same name. Chiang Mai has had a long and mostly independent history, which has to a large extent preserved a most distinctive culture. This is witnessed both in the daily lives of the people, who maintain their own dialect, customs and cuisine, and in a host of ancient temples, fascinating for their northern Thai architectural styles and rich decorative details.

Today, Chiang Mai is renowned for its outstanding handicrafts that illustrate their exquisite cultures, producing items in silk, wood, silver, ceramics and more, which make the city the country’s top shopping destination for arts and crafts. Aside from relaxation and shopping for handicrafts, the city offers some of the most picturesque scenery in the whole Kingdom. Surrounded by rolling hills and the province as a whole is one of forested mountains ( including Thailand’s highest peak, Doi Inthanon), jungles and rivers. Here is the ideal terrain for adventure travel by trekking on elephant back, river rafting, four-wheel drive safaris or exploring the colourful region with its many ancient temples. At the same time, visitors to Chiang Mai will find deluxe hotels, mountain resorts and other facilities that ensure today’s comforts and convenience.

Chiang Mai is best reached by flight from Bangkok. Flights are also available from Chiang Rai, Hua Hin, Koh Samui, Krabi, Phuket, Hong Kong and Singapore making it ideal for a combination trip.
