Have you heard of Chiang Mai? This beautiful city in the mountainous parts of northern Thailand was once the capital of the Lanna Kingdom. While the empire is no longer around, Chiang Mai continues to reign as a destination for travel in Thailand.
Visitors from all over the world have made their way to this gem in Thailand’s north for lavish temples, bazaars, locally made arts and crafts and elephant sanctuaries.
While the possibility of discovering old traditions, historic architecture and ancient culture is part of Chiang Mai’s allure, this 700-year old city established by King Mengrei in the 13th-century is also filled with more modern attractions too. An exciting metropolis has developed around the Old City.
Foodies will love Chiang Mai’s blossoming culinary scene, and design lovers will find unique creations and art being showcased in spaces that are every bit of the 21st-century. In December of 2017, UNESCO awarded this Chiang Mai the title of Creative City.
During the day you can spend your time taking in the Chiang Mai’s past, present and future by observing a mixture between the intricate art that adorns the beautiful old temples and exploring the contemporary art and design scene.
Once the sun goes down the city comes to life with night markets, buzzing bars, hip restaurants and hubs for street-food. A little bit outside the old city walls and bustling cosmopolitan area, you can explore idyllic villages and peaceful countryside, beautiful waterfalls and other beautiful scenery.
It’s time to start planning your escape to Chiang Mai, a land in the north where Thailand’s past, present and future come together and create an experience like no other!
