The ‘culture capital’ of Thailand is a charming and laidback 700-year-old town famous for sightseeing, trekking, soft adventure, shopping, spas and mountain resorts.
In 1296, King Mengrai founded Nophaburi Sri Nakorn Ping Chiang Mai as the ‘new city’ of his thriving kingdom known as Lanna (million rice fields).
Without losing its ancient charm, entertainment and leisure are two certain priorities among the people of Chiang Mai.
The mountainous northern region of Thailand draws plenty of visitors to its charming combination of genuine culture, wilderness adventure and unbeatable scenery. One particularly distinctive character of Northern Thailand is the presence of the colourful and unique minority hilltribes.
