About Travel to Chiang Mai
In terms of its population, Chiang Mai is the 8th largest city in Thailand, however, in terms of popularity with foreign tourists, Chiang Mai ranks 3rd after Bangkok and Pattaya. What makes Chiang Mai so popular is combination of the historic buildings in the city centre, the excellent facilities for tourists and pleasant atmosphere, and the mountainous surrounding countryside. Chiang Mai has its own culture, different to that of Bangkok and the Central Plains, as a consequence of its long history as a separate Kingdom, only assimilated into the larger political union of Siam (Thailand) in the 18th Century.
For visitors arriving by bus in Chiang Mai the first thing they need to do is to navigate their way to the city centre from the long distance bus station located several kilometres to the East of the city centre. The easiest option is to take a tuk-tuk, which will cost around 100 THB depending on where in the city you are going and your negotiation skills. A cheaper option is to walk to the nearby Chiang Mai Bus Terminal 3 to the shared taxi desk and wait for a shared taxi into the city which costs 30 THB per person for any destination. There are two main areas in Chiang Mai where most tourists chose to stay: the Old Town and the riverside area near the Changklan Road. Shared taxi services from Chiang Mai Bus Terminal 3 pass by the turning to the Changklan Road on route to the Old Town. The Old Town is where the city’s main historical attractions are located as well as the most of the budget accommodation, and as a consequence it tends to be popular with younger backpackers. The riverside area has more Western style amenities and better quality hotels and for this reason this is where families and older visitors often choose to stay. The nightlife on the Changklan Road is centred around its night markets, such as the Anusarn Market, which feature restaurants, bars and live entertainment as well as stalls selling souvenirs.
