I am lucky enough to have visited Chiang Mai a number of times and always found it to be a city that is well worth a visit. It is only a short (cheap) flight from Bangkok and, whilst it is still a city it is only a fraction of the size of the capital. The benefit of that is that it offers a...

Thais call this city the Rose of the North and it certainly is beautiful place to go and visit. I have added an update at the end of this review. It is about 370 miles north west of Bangkok. This means a 70 minute flight, or 12 hour ( or longer ! ) train, bus or car ride. Personally, if you have...

ProFitter, Happier, Cleaner.

ConsThe Overnight Train.

Chaing Mai is the capital of the Northern Thailand province of Chaing Mai. With a population of just over 160,000 people it is the perfect urban getaway from the strangling density of Bangkok. The weather is also a little cooler than the capital and its centre is beautifully contained within a...

Chiang Mai is one of the biggest cities in the North of Thailand and I’m lucky enough to have recently returned from there. I visited Thailand for a fortnight as a break from a trip to Singapore visiting relatives, and although I’ve been to Thailand before, this was my first trip to the North and...

Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand and the 'capital' of the north, it was also my destination of choice in seeking to escape the horrendous pollution of the nation's capital. Northern Thailand and Chiang Mai in particular are mostly visited by those that wish to go trekking through...

Just because it hasn't got a beach, don't whatever you do put off a trip to Chiang Mai if you visit Thailand. This place is the friendliest and most vibrant place in the whole of the Kingdom. Its situated about 8 hours from Bangkok be it by train or coach.There are also regular flights direct...

ProCultural, busy, great shopping

ConsPollution

As part of our honeymoon in 2000, my new husband and I journeyed to Thailand. We wanted to avoid Bangkok, but still wanted to experience a Thai city and so headed for the famed ancient capital, Chiang Mai. The first thing that greeted us when we got off the plane was the heat, although the clouds...

Consmight not have a pretty view

I paid 800 baht a night which included a buffet style breakfast. But I later discovered that I had made a mistake as I had booked the acomodation through the official tourist agent of thailand at Bangkok railway station. I would have got a better rate booking it myself by just turning up. The...

ConsNot alot

People say that bangkok and the Thai islands are the culture capitals of the country but I beg to differ. Way up North after a different nights rest on a sleeper train lies the most beautiful, busy Thai city called Chang Mai. I was only given four days here as the time limit on my trip permitted...

Chiang Mai is known as the Capitol of the North and is the biggest city in the north. Unlike Bangkok, Chiang Mai has trees and clean air, and the main areas are relatively uncrowded. There are many Wats (Buddhist temples) in the city, but the best one, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, is on a nearby...
