Destination Chiang Mai
With a population of over 1 million in the metropolitan area Chiang Mai is Thailand's fifth-largest city. 700 km north of Bangkok, the city is located on a plain by the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains . A dynamic and modern city, combining rich traditions with modern life.
Chiang Mai is known for the skill of the local craftsmen using local resources, particularly in wood carving and silver smithing. Very reasonably priced, visitors can buy teak furniture and silver jewelry in the local markets. In the surrounding hills are a number of hill tribes, such as the Karen, known for their long necked women.
Chiang Mai has more than 300 temples - many dating back to the founding of the principality - decorated with beautiful wood carvings, Naga staircases, leonine and angelic guardians, gilded umbrellas and pagodas laced with gold filigree. The most famous is Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, which overlooks the city from a mountainside 13 km away.
