    Chiang Mai Hotels

    Chiang Mai Province is located in northern Thailand, with its capital city of the same name being a well-known travel destination about 700 km north of Bangkok in a verdigris valley on the banks of the Ping River. The city is centred around its Old City, which has been restored to preserve its historical charms. Chiang Mai was previously the capital of the Lanna Kingdom, only becoming incorporated into Thailand in the 1930s. Today, with its local mountains, forests, historical appeal, being a meeting place of various cultures, and temples, the city is a well-known tourist destination. Chiang Mai, being as popular and sizeable as it is, has plenty of hotels and accommodations, with over 1500 at last count. You can book stays at more budget-friendly hotels and guest houses, as well as at more upscale establishments.

    The most visited site is the 14th century Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, located within the natural beauty of Doi Suthep National Park. This most revered temple is crowned by a majestic glistening gold plated 24-metre towering monument that dazzles onlookers. The drive along the way to this complex is scattered with mighty waterfalls and tropical rainforest making it a brilliant day out.

    Where to stay in Chiang Mai?  The accommodation is varied across distinct areas and at its heart is the beautiful fortified Old City with its surrounding moat and the bustling Chiang Mai Night Market. Then there’s the quaint Riverside full of old-world charm situated on the banks of the Mae Ping River and the modern Nimmanhaemin Road, laden with boutiques, art galleries and great dining choices.

    Getting around town is best with tuk-tuks or songthaews, although the former will take visitors directly to their destinations at a comparatively higher price. Otherwise, you might want to rent a car. Going beyond the city is easier if you travel by train via Chiang Mai Station. As for flights in and out, the major airport in the area is Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX). The most popular time to visit is October to April during the dry season when there are warm days but cool pleasant evenings.
