Chiang Mai Holidays

Thailand's second largest city steeped in history

Chiang Mai is an outstandingly attractive, ancient city situated within easy reach of northern Thailand's beautiful mountains and lush tropical forests. Holidays in Chiang Mai can be spent exploring the unique walled old town, boating on its tranquil moat, visiting Buddhist temples and museums or relaxing in the high quality, great value hotel accommodation to be found here. However, most travellers come for the world-class trekking opportunities. Second only to Bangkok in size, Chiang Mai has a completely different feel to the capital. Chiang Mai is compact and less frenetic and whereas Bangkok is around 200 years old, Chiang Mai dates back to the 13th Century. Around 700 kilometres north of Bangkok, Chiang Mai is less than an hour from the capital by air and is served by several daily flights. You could also choose to directly through the city's own airport - Chiang Mai International (CNX).
