Chiang Mai, Thailand
temple — november 2018
This blissfully calm and laid-back jungle city is filled with charm and history. Nestled amongst forested foothills, Chiang Mai is considered the spiritual capital of Thailand and has a totally different feel and vibe than you would experience in the chaos of Bangkok. Despite it’s past, the historic centre of Chiang Mai still feels overwhelmingly residential, more like a sleepy country town than a bustling capital.
A sprawling modern city has grown up around ancient Chiang Mai, if you go outside of the old town in any direction, you'll soon find yourself in the lush green countryside of northern Thailand. A short ride by motorcycle or chartered rót daang will deliver you to pristine rainforest reserves, churning waterfalls, serene forest wát, bubbling hot springs and peaceful country villages – as well as an endless variety of adventure camps, elephant sanctuaries and souvenir markets.
This is your experience and ultimately how you spend your time will be your choice alone. Chiang Mai is filled with numerous cultural gems and discovery, with easy access to nearby cities, adventures and weekend escapes.
