Chiang Mai is the largest city of the northern part of Thailand and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Asia. The city is overflowing with wats, intricately designed Buddhist temples dating from the 14th and 15th centuries, and museums that hold the cultural bounty of this diverse section of Thailand. Traditional festivals such as Loi Krathong in November and Songkran in April dazzle visitors with decorative displays and exciting parades.

Take a break from the hubbub of the city and wander through the many national parks in the area. You can visit hill tribes on food or by elephant, hike the tall mountains of Doi Inthanon and Doi Suthep, and view beautiful greenery in the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden. Expert Thai-style massage awaits within the many parlors scattered throughout the city, and an expansive night bazaar and assortment of craft and food markets invite your perusal.

I absolutely love Chiang Mai. The city is the perfect mix of Thai culture and foreign influence with plenty of attractions, natural beauty, Buddhist spirituality, food from nearly everywhere, trendy coffee shops and cheap prices.

Cool City with a part of the city in the old city walls, with the newer city build around the outside of the moat. Lots of sites, easily navigable by foot , tuk-tuk, or motorbike.
