The city of Chiang Mai, situated on the banks of the Ping River, is undisturbed by modern times; it is a treasure trove of mountain ranges with vast rugged vistas, waterfalls, and trails where one can discover remarkable sights. This region is rich in traditional culture and architecture, including some of the country’s most majestic temples.

The countryside offers adventure travel by trekking, elephant-back, river-rafting, or four-wheel drive safaris. The North’s hilly ranges are also home to most of Thailand’s hill-tribe population, who are famous for their traditional handicrafts in silk, wood, silver, ceramics, and more.

Lampang is the only town in Thailand where horse carts are still found—don’t miss the horse-cart tours and a stop at the City Pillar Shrine!
