|Why go on holiday to Chiang Mai?
Named the 'Rose of the North' for the abundance of flowers that thrive in the cooler mountain climate, this city represents the best of modern Thailand – with superb cultural and natural beauty on offer. To go with all the sophistication – it's got a huge number of superb temples but it's still seen - by the Thais - as a quaint, walled and ancient city surrounded by mystical hills.
How much will it cost?
Prices vary dramatically but as a guide, a basic six-night package is around £500 in low season. Flights-only start at around £350. You can get a room for a night for as little as £9, but the average would be around £20. A night in a five-star hotel would set you back about £214, although there are plenty of package deals.
When should I go?
Between October and April. For the rest of the year it's monsoon and therefore very wet! The mildest temperatures are in December and January. Nights in Chiang Mai are regularly cooler than in southern Thailand. It can be quite hot in April with an average of 36°C (95°F).
Who's it for?
Culture vultures will love its rich history, the temples and the superb scenery. Nature lovers will love the walking trails, the hikes and the scenery. Those on a tour of Thailand should make sure this awesome city and province is included in their itinary.
What are the must-sees?
The Wat Phra Borommathat temple at the peak of Doi Suthepn, 3,520 feet above sea level, is Chiang Mai's most visible landmark. Climb, drive or take the funicular for superb views across the city and the Ping River valley. It dates back to the 16th century and its golden chedi (pagoda) contains many sacred Buddhist relics.
There are a number of trails on Doi Inthanon – contact the Park Headquarters before embarking on a walk. Try the Gew Mae Pan Trail, from the main summit road into the forest along the top of a steep slope bordering the Mae Pan River.
The elephant camps in the Chiang Mai Province are a huge draw. These include the Mae Sa Elephant Camp near Chiang Dow. It's about 30km north of the capital. You can watch the elephants show off their forestry skills every morning and then enjoy a jungle tour on elephant back.
The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar on Chang Klang Road is undoubtedly the city's most famous shopping location and is a must for all visitors. It buzzes till midnight - and a few stores open all day. Keep an eye out for a bargain - but remember there are a lot of fakes on sale too.
What should I buy?
Clothes, hats, watches, jewellery...you will find everything you've ever wanted and a whole lot more in the Night Bazaar and other markets. Make sure you haggle.
Any special events?
The The annual New Year celebration, or Songkran, which falls on or around April 13, is a high spot on the Thai calendar. The word 'Songkran' means 'beginning of the solar year' in Sanskrit, and the festival has turned into a water-throwing funfest. And the wettest and wildest celebrations take place in Chiang Mai where the water throwing goes on for three days. The festivities also include setting off firecrackers, parades and a variety of religious ceremonies based around the many temples.
Thailand's "Rose of the North" is a cultural and natural
wonderland with ethnic diversity, a multitude of attractions, and welcoming
Chiang Mai is one of the few places in Thailand where it is possible to experience both historical and modern Thai culture coexisting side by side: the city features centuries-old chedis and temples next to modern convenience stores and boutique hotels. This dichotomy is best appreciated within the moat-encircled old city, which retains much of the fortified wall that once protected the city center as well as the four main gates that provided access to the former Lanna capital city.
Strangely, for many years tourists had mistaken Chiang Mai simply as the base from which they could plan trekking and rafting trips to hill tribe villages and explore other provinces. Once in Chiang Mai however, tourists are surprised by the fact that there are so many things to discover other than its beautiful and historic temples.
Intriguing diversity among ethnic tribes, a number of elephant camps, many cooking & massage schools, numerous outdoor activities, a variety of handicrafts workshops, various cultural performances, and breathtaking scenery make Chiang Mai one of Asia's most attractive tourist destinations. The phrase "a day in Chiang Mai is enough to see things around town" was once a common expression. Today, two weeks in Chiang Mai may not be long enough for travelers to experience all that Chiang Mai has to offer.
The old city of Chiang Mai is a showcase of the north's fascinating indigenous cultural identity that includes diverse dialects, a delectable cuisine, distinctive architecture, traditional values, lively festivals, numerous handicrafts workshops, northern style massage, and classical dances. Chiang Mai city features old-world beauty and charm as well as modern luxury and convenience.
In addition to centuries old temples and some outstanding shopping opportunities, Chiang Mai is also blessed with pristine natural resources including mountains, waterfalls, and rivers. The presence of numerous hill tribes that feature a wealth of unique cultures enhances Chiang Mai's distinctive diversity. Hill tribe trekking, often combined with river rafting and elephant riding has always been one of Chiang Mai's greatest tourist attractions. Nowadays there are innumerable activities and attractions both in the city and the surrounding province, including massage instruction and golf.
Moreover, visitors can visit workshops where they can learn about the production of silk or silver, and purchase memorable, hand crafted souvenirs. With such a diverse range of attractions and an equally grand selection of dining and accommodation options, Chiang Mai is a place where both backpackers and luxury tourists can enjoy the ultimate Thailand holiday.
If you plan on arriving in Chiang Mai during the Songkran festival (April 13-15) make sure you pack everything in plastic prior to placing it in your luggage :)
