CHIANG MAI

The city of Chiang Mai, the largest in North-East Thailand, boasts a long and proud history that is distinctly theirs. This relaxed city sits in the shadow of the surrounding mountains and is a great place for those seeking some solace from the partying in the South. This is not a quiet city as there is always plenty to do and plenty to explore.

ABOUT

Chiang Mai is one of our favourite cities, not only in Southeast Asia, but the world. Thailand’s second largest city has a completely different feel to that of Bangkok and these relaxed vibes have turned the city into a haven for travellers.

GET THERE

Arriving by overnight bus or train from Bangkok is popular among backpackers and locals. There is also a local bus network that operates between many local areas.

The most popular and efficient way to arrive into the city is via the cities International airport which accepts flights form all over Thailand and many local international destinations.
