Thailand’s second city and former capital of the ancient, independent Lanna Kingdom, Chiang Mai prides itself for its distinct northern culture and identity.
The Old City with its historical moats and fortifications, and hundreds of ancient temples are its top attractions, but there are also plenty of undiscovered things to do off the tourist trail.
Flanked by mountains and sitting astride the Ping River, this northern city enjoys a slightly cooler and less humid climate compared to the country’s central and southern regions, but also battles with smog problems at the end of the dry season (February – April).
Travel to here by train, enjoying its slow pace while watching landscapes and villages roll by.
