Chiang Mai has it all

Chiang Mai has for many years been a popular stop on round trips in Thailand. We often stop here for two nights, but the city has a lot to offer and can definitely be recommended for a longer stay as well.

On a trip to Chiang Mai in the north Thailand, you most often visit the Karen people - better known as the 'long necks' - and spend the evening at the night market in the popular tourist district east of the old town. This is also how I first became acquainted with Chiang Mai, so of course it is also included in this travel guide to Thailand.

Chiang Mai has it all: top-class cinemas, shopping malls like in Bangkok, a gigantic selection of cozy cafes and restaurants. The city is an ancient capital as well as the cultural and commercial center of the kingdom of Lanna. Chiang Mai is rich in culture, history and not least scenic areas. Here is the beautiful nature just outside the city.

It is also in this area that you meet a population where you quickly recognize the true kindness and helpfulness for which the Thais are so famous. As long as one behaves respectfully, of course.
