Chiang Mai Tourism: Best of Chiang Mai

Thailand's "Rose of the North"
You could spend your whole holiday just exploring Chiang Mai's famous city centre, where the remains of ancient walls encircle over 30 temples. Energetic travellers can climb 300 stairs to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, an ornate Buddhist temple in the hills. But don’t just explore historical sights—witness Thailand’s vibrant present at the Night Bazaar where you can master the art of haggling. The Botanic Garden is also a great place to soak up some local culture and to breathe in the delicate fragrance of Thai orchids.
