CHIANG MAI 
The Rose of the North

Founded in 1296 by King Mengrai as the capital of the Lanna Kingdom, Chiang Mai is the second largest city of Thailand. Chiang Mai has had a long and mostly independent history, which has to a large extent preserved a most distinct Thai culture. Beyond the city, the province offers some of the most picturesque scenery in the whole kingdom, and is one of the forested mountains including Thailand’s highest peak at Doi Intanon.

01. The inner sanctuary of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

Chiang Mai’s most famous and most visible landmark, at 3,520 feet above sea level, is Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, which commands an exhilarating view of the city and the surrounding countryside. Attracting Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world, this temple is approached by a flight of 290 Naga-flanked steps and dominated by a golden Chedi (pagoda) containing holy Buddha relics
02. The roof of Thailand: Doi Inthanon National Park

With a maximum altitude of 8,415 feet above the sea level, Doi Inthanon reigns as the highest peak in the Kingdom. This wonderful national park boasts many types of forest, and over 360 bird species, spectacular butterflies, wildlife, orchids and other distinct flora vie for the hiker's attention.
03. The exotic and engaging Elephant Encounter

At various elephant camps in Chiang Mai, elephant shows are generally held in the morning and begin with elephant bathing before continuing with displays of forestry work and other skills. To learn more of elephant and mahout relationships, try a mahout course at the Elephant Conservation Center in the nearby province of Lampang.
04. Experience Doi Ang Khang’s breathtaking scenery

Famous for its cool climate all year round, visitors can explore the Royal Angkhang Station Project, visit hill tribe villages to learn more about their daily life, and enjoy ecotourism activities such as trekking, mountain biking, and bird watching.
05. Discover the secrets of Wiang Kum Kam

A recently discovered ancient city believed to have been built during the reign of King Meng Rai in 1286, the city was once the capital of the Lanna Kingdom until the Ping River flooded and wiped out the whole city. There are more than 20 ancient ruins inside and around Wiang Kum Kam including Wat Chedi Liam, Wat Chang Kham, Wat Noi, Wat Pu Pia, Wat Ku Koa, Wat E Kang, Wat Hua Nong, and Wat Pu Song, which are dated from the 21st and 22nd Buddhist centuries.
06. The festive and vibrant Songkran Festival

The Thai New Year is celebrated with particular gusto in Chiang Mai from April 13 to 15. Among the events are: the parade of the revered Phra Phuttasihing Buddha image around Chiang Mai town for ritual bathing, pagoda-making with sand, blessing of elders, and water splashing. The city is decorated in Lanna style to welcome the festival.
07. The spectacular and beautiful Yi Peng Festival

Coinciding with the Loy Krathong Festival on the full-moon night of the 12th lunar month, the event features the release of lanterns into the sky to worship the gods. Illuminated arches and lanterns usually decorate the houses and temples. There are also Lanna cultural performances and everyone can join in the delightful tradition of the floating of krathong.
08. Take sightseeing to new heights: see our world by air

An alternative way to get a bird’s eye view of Chiang Mai is to board a Microlight aircraft or take a balloon flight to see the city and the surrounding countryside.
09. Rest, relax, and renew: the ultimate Thailand spa experience

Experience spas in Lanna or Northern Thailand style, which combine its nature, beauty, relaxation and purification. Thailand spas in Chiang Mai also offer extensive ranges of holistic therapy, healing treatments, and wellness programs. Top on the list is Thailand’s first world-class destination spa, the Deva Spa at the Oriental Dhara Dhevi, which is world-renowned for its Ayurvedic Treatment Center.
10. Take a charming Mae Ping River Cruise by scorpion-tailed boat

Traditional scorpion-tailed boats have been in use on the Mae Ping River for decades. Made from whole teak trunks, approximately 13-26 feet in diameter, scorpion-tailed boats will cruise you along the Ping River. Cruise trips last about 1 1/2 hours, providing an opportunity to enjoy picturesque scenery while you learn about the Lanna and Chiang Mai history.
11. Experience the highs and lows of whitewater rafting Thailand

Whitewater rafting in Chiang Mai is adventurous and unbeatable. The untouched forests around Mae Chaem and Mae Tang streams are highlights with great excitement and challenges ranging from the easy level of class 2+ to the hard level of class 4+. Activities can also include mountain biking, elephant riding, trekking and even an overnight stay in a hill tribe village along the route.
12. Take a sublime Thai cooking class

Thailand cooking classes in Chiang Mai are a delight and great fun. Classes in major cooking schools and hotels are conducted in English. Recipes include popular Thai dishes as well as northern specialties, where you will learn the etiquette of eating at the unique khan toke table. Some schools have their own gardens where students can pick and use herbs and spices for the course, making the learning of Thai cooking a truly unique experience.
13. Bird watching in Chiang Mai will enchant you

Chiang Mai is a leading destination for bird watching; many bird varieties can be seen all year round. Doi Intanon, Thailand’s highest peak, marks the southern point of the Himalayan range and is the habitat of many rare species. Winter is the best time when indigenous and migrant birds are found, including Eurasian Woodcock, White Wagtail, Grey Wagtail, Yellow Wagtail, Citrine Wagtail, Forest Wagtail, Chestnut Thrush, Scarlet Finch, Little Bunting, and Crested Bunting.
14. Discover great finds while shopping in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is without a doubt Thailand’s major center for quality handicrafts, both traditional and modern, hill tribe handicrafts and antiques. For fast and easy shopping, Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is ideal and offers souvenirs and beyond. If time permits Nimmanahaeminda Road, Wua Lai walking street, Tha Pae walking street, San Khamphaeng, Bo Sang, and Ban Thawai Village are among highlights of the shopping districts.
15. A multitude of dining choices in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai's restaurants offer a wide range of food both Thai and international, second only to Bangkok. It is also the ideal place to sample northern Thai food, influenced by the nearby Burmese, Yunnanese, and Lao cuisines. Anusarn market is best for local specialties. Hunt down for some Sai-Ua (Chiang Mai sausage) and Khao Soi (curry noodles). A must try is Khan Toke, a formal northern meal sharing a variety of main courses with guests seated around low, lacquered teak tables. Most of the restaurants that serve khan toke combine a cultural performance with the meal.
