There are some spectacular sightseeing and tour experiences for the visitor, and indeed residents to savour — no matter your interests, the ‘Rose of the North’ offers something for you.
Chiang Mai is steeped in history from the remnants of the Old City walls to the historic temples and notable sites. Outside the city, nature beckons with forest-covered mountains, spectacular viewpoints, hot springs, rivers and waterfalls. There are many areas of outstanding natural beauty to explore but also different cultures to discover. Many of the hill tribes living in Northern Thailand have different customs both each other and ethnic Thai people.
You can see the sights yourself, but for most visitors, the best way is to join an organised tour. Many companies offer an enormous range of tour experiences from extensive group bus tours to personal private guides who will take you to rarely visited communities deep in the mountains.
