Chiang Mai spoils travelers with its natural beauty and its range of history
and culture. The mountain scenery can simply be an inspirational backdrop or
offer an adventure, with guided treks to discover indigenous tribes and the rich
flora and fauna. The 14th century wats can simply be admired for their intricate
Lanna architecture or they may inspire a more meditative experience with
exploration of Buddhism, practiced by 90% of Thais. And then the craft that can
be viewed in factories, markets and the famous night bazaar is not only a
cultural display but can become a rather addictive shopping experience. These many
diversions are detailed by our concierge under Things to do and see.
