Thailand - Chiang Mai Province (Chapter)
This is the Chiang Mai Province chapter from Lonely Planet’s Thailand guidebook.
The province of Chiang Mai, with its cooling mist-shrouded mountains bursting with dense jungle, has long enticed visitors. Highlights of the region include the laid-back city of Chiang Mai, with its moated, partially walled old city; its celebrated ancient temples; and a traveller-friendly scene. Activities such as cycling, hiking, elephant trekking, bird-watching and river rafting offer an escape from the steaming plains.
- Glimpsing the cultural side of the city at the sacred temples of Wat Phra Singh and Wat Chedi Luang
- Picking up some bargains at the Saturday Walking Street and Sunday Walking Street
- restaurants & accommodation
- Stretching out for a traditional massage or meditation course
