About Travel to Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations, despite not having a beach. Many international travellers choose to combine a visit to Chiang Mai with a visit to a beach front destination during a holiday in Thailand.

Reasons Why Chiang Mai is Popular

The reason why Chiang Mai is such a popular destination is threefold: it has great facilities for visitors at value for money prices; an historic Old Town area; and the surrounding countryside is hilly with large areas of forest. There are lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy for at least a week in Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai Old Town

If you are staying in Chiang Mai for only 1 or 2 days then you should prioritise exploring the Old Town which has other 70 temples and a very lively night market on Sundays. Chiang Mai was established in 1296 as the new capital of the Lanna Kingdom, which ruled over much of Northern Thailand in that period. Chiang Mai’s Old Town is bounded by the remnants of a city wall and a moat on all four sides. Some of the temples in the city date back to the period the city was founded. The two largest and most visited of the temples are Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Phra Singh.

Chiang Mai Riverside

Whilst interesting to visit in the daytime and for the night market, many visitors choose to stay in a hotel in the riverside area near the lively Changklan Road instead of in the Old Town itself. This area has some large and great value for money international standard hotels, night markets which are busy every day of the week, fantastic restaurants and many of the city’s most lively bars.
