Chiang Mai Holidays Overview


Northern Thailand's hub and one of the most popular tourist destinations of the country, Chiang Mai is a laid back, scenic and cosmopolitan city. This urban area is surrounded by lush countryside and piercing mountains. Compared to Bangkok, it is much quieter and greener with a large expat population. The city also has a youthful feel because of the large student population.

Chiang Mai is a historically and culturally important city and was once the capital of the Lana Kingdom. Its isolated location has helped the city retain much of its ancient charm. The historical centre is its walled city. The moat is the only part that remains intact today but restoration efforts were made to retain some parts of the wall. Inside are over 30 beautiful temples in a combination of Sri Lankan, Lanna Thai and Burmese styles with beautiful Naga staircases, wood carvings, gilded umbrellas and angels.

Chiang Mai is also quite cosmopolitan and has expanded a lot over the years. Chang Klan Road is where most hotels in the city are located. It is also the location of the popular Night Bazaar. The night life in Chiang Mai is centred on Loi Kroh Road while the large Sunday night market is located on the Ratchadamneon Road.

Chiang Mai holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Doi Suthep

www.doisuthep.com/english.html
What is it? Some 10 miles (15km) west of Chiang Mai lies the Doi Suthep Mountain, famous for the Wat Phrathat temple perched on the summit. Legend has it that in the late 14th century King Ku Na was looking for somewhere to house a collection of holy relics. He placed them in a howdah on the back of an elephant and let the animal wander. The elephant proceeded to climb Doi Suthep, on top of which it trumpeted, turned round three times and knelt to indicate that this was the spot. Wat Phrathat can be reached either by a flight of 290 steps, or by funicular, and offers breathtaking views of the countryside. Hours of Operation: Daily 6am to 8pm Phone:

1. Naga Fireballs

From 2007-10-07

To 2007-10-07
 

What is it? One of the world's most awesome phenomena is this natural event which coincides with the end of the Buddhist Rains Retreat. Hundreds, often thousands of balls of fire rise out of the water to a few hundred metres before disappearing. It is not yet known how exactly this occurs and though scientists may dispute, the locals believe it is the work of Naga, a serpent living in the Mekong River. Where is it? Mekong River, Nong Khai region
