Temples appear on every corner of this wonderful city in contrast to the bustle, aromas and colours of its picturesque streets. The majestic natural environment is also a paradise for hikers.
In an idyllic setting in northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is a must-see destination if you’re interested in seeing the peace and calm inspired by hundreds of temples on its streets. Two that you absolutely must see are the Silver Temple, Wat Sri Suphan, and Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, submerged in the jungle and offering spectacular panoramic city views. You’ll also love the explosion of aromas and colours at the Ton LamyaiLas flower market or a hike through the mountains with rivers, jungle and small indigenous villages.
