About Chiang Mai

Once the capital of Lana Kingdom, Chiang Mai is the answer to all your travel desires. It is very much like the Thailand capital Bangkok but peaceful. The charm and beauty of the Chiang Mai binds the travelers and you will find a superfluous craving to stay for some more days here.

The city holds almost everything for all types of travelers. Whether it is natural ambiance you want or the sight of majestic human creations, Chiang Mai got you covered.

The relaxing walks in the astonishingly beautiful gardens of Chiang Mai are known to calm the mind and soul. The nature dwells in full force here and in the surrounding villages.

Doi Pui in Chiang Mai is a place where you will find nature emanating its beauty in form of tree laden hills and breathtakingly beautiful flowers. The village as a whole is a large garden which does not only have awe inspiring natural sceneries but also enriches in cultural items on sale along with restaurants with exotic local food.

Doi Inthanon is another place inundated with the natural beauty. It is the longest peak in Thailand which is surrounded by astonishing waterfalls, hill tribe villages (which calls for trekking) and a national park.

Going for the man made architectures, Wat Chedi Luang will not disappoint you. Constructed in the 1401, the ruins of Wat Chedi Luang are outstanding in all aspects. Chiang Mai does not only contain a large number of historical ruins and monuments of architectural importance but it also holds a large number of brilliantly designed temples. Some of these temples have special rules for those who want to visit.

Dining:Sunday walking street might be your best bet at getting your hands on a variety of dishes of Chiang Mai. It is held every Sunday at the Wualai Road. Apart from that there are restaurants in the city which offer the signature dish of Chiang Mai, Khao Soi which is a must try. There is food available in all price ranges.

Respect: Chiang Mai is enriched with the culture of Thailand. You can see it clearly in the temples and the local markets here. You should follow the rules they have set so as to preserve their culture and faith.

Stay Safe: Although Chiang Mai is safe but not all people are nice. You should refrain yourself from going into dark places alone carrying valuables. There have been many cases of tourist related crimes like bag snatching. Stay away from fights and get rid of the greedy locals who try to take advantage of your lack of knowledge of area.
