Thailand - Northern Thailand (Chapter)
This is the Northern Thailand chapter from Lonely Planet’s Thailand guidebook.
Northern Thailand’s mountains may not be large, but their impact and significance on Thai culture are immense. Whether exploring a Buddhist temple in Phrae, taking part in a homestay in rural Sukhothai, or sampling a dish at Lampang’s evening market – northern Thailand’s cultural attractions are generally low-key but are eminently rewarding. And the region’s rugged geography ensures that there is also ample opportunity for trekking, rafting or visiting a national park.
- Exploring one of the region’s numerous and diverse national parks, such as Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park or the rugged Salawin National Park
- Hiking and rafting in Um Phang, where the end of the road leads to Nam Tok Thilawsu, Thailand’s biggest, most beautiful waterfall
- restaurants & accommodation
- Cycling around the awesome ruins of Thailand’s ‘Golden Age’ at Sukhothai and Si Satchanalai-Chaliang Historical Parks
