Chiang Mai is the economic heart of Northern Thailand and Thailand’s second largest city. It’s a far cry from Bangkok’s hustling and bustling. Because of its fresh and peaceful atmosphere, it is known as the “Northern Rose.” Chiang Mai, the capital of the Lanna Kingdom, has a lovely, traditional ambiance.
Inside and beyond the ancient city, there are numerous charming and lovely temples. The grand and beautiful Northern Thai-style pagodas are home to modest and kind monks who are glad to speak with guests.
Along the criss-crossed streets, there are numerous shops full of one-of-a-kind finds, as well as restaurants, coffee shops, and massage parlors. The vibrant night markets are a fascinating feature that is popular with tourists.
