Located 700km north of Bangkok is the city of Chiang Mai. Within the ancient walled city, there are over 30 temples to visit. Chiang Mai is a good base from which to explore the tribes of the surrounding hills.
Chiang Mai is Thailand's second largest city, known as the "rose of the north". Located in the mountainous north of the country, Chiang Mai and surrounding area are blessed with rich historical and cultural heritage, a pleasant year round climate and charming people in addition to exciting entertainment and shopping. Chiang Mai is also the gateway to the ancient Lanna kingdom and is a perfect base from which to explore northern Thailand and the ethnic minorities and hill tribes that still inhabit the area.
