Welcome to Chiangmai
Northern Thailand, with its temperate climate, mountainous terrain and colorful mix of hill-tribe peoples, is a very special destination for all travelers. Located 700 km north of Bangkok overland, Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second most important city, and the heart of this historic and beautiful region.
Northern hospitality opens its arms to visitors as they walk among the old wooden temples and two-story houses of the ancient walled city. Wind your way along a steep mountain road to Wat Prathat Doi Suthep for a magnificent view of the entire valley.
The region is home to many minority villages with intriguing traditional ways of life. The exquisite weaving and handicrafts worn, traded and sold by the villagers are typified by rugged quality and unique design. There are also a number of local handicrafts that make Chiang Mai an interesting shopping destination. The city is yet cosmopolitan and offers all that western visitors can demand, including movies, restaurants, shopping malls, international schools, museums, cultural places and a wide selection of hotels and accommodation of all categories. Chiangmai is today one of the favorite destinations in South East Asia, for all categories of travelers.
Chiang Mai, with its surrounding valleys and mountains, offers a wide range of great adventure opportunities!
