Chiang Mai

Discover the diverse history and culture of northern Thailand during a holiday in Chiang Mai, the largest and most significant city in the region.
Visiting Doi Inthanon National Park and Zipline will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Wat Phra That Doi Kham (Temple of the Golden Mountain) and Ban Hmong Mae Sa Mai. Change things up with a short trip to Wat Kukut in Lamphun (about 50 minutes away). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Art in Paradise, Chiang Mai 3D Art Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wat Phra Singh, take in panoramic vistas at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, and explore the ancient world of Wat Umong Suan Phutthatham.
