Chang Mai, Thailand
What to see in Chiang Mai
There is a magical city in the north of Thailand - Chiang Mai, it is called the cultural capital of Thailand
Chiang Mai is located in the north of Thailand, near the border with Laos and Burma. It is the second largest city in the country, after Bangkok. Shining in the sun temples, colorful markets, amazing nature and a lot of cozy coffee shops where you can try delicious coffee grown in the north of Thailand - many travelers believe that authentic Thailand opens here.
On the territory of this small province live various ancient tribes and nationalities with their own history and customs, whose small villages are not even marked on the map. They are mainly engaged in the cultivation of tea and rice, hunting for wild animals and raising livestock. Doi Suthep Temple is one of the most famous Buddhist temples in Thailand. Built back in 1328, it is considered the hallmark of the province. Wat Chedi Luang is the oldest temple in Chiang Mai. One of the oldest temples of Chiang Mai - Wat Phra Singh (Temple of the Buddha-Lion) - is considered the most beautiful temple of Chiang Mai. This temple complex has many statues of Buddha and a large golden stupa.
Going to attend temples, do not forget to dress properly - your knees and shoulders should be closed
There are more Buddhist temples in Chiang Mai than anywhere else in all of Thailand. Chiang Mai is a city with a truly rich history that goes back more than 700 years. It is considered one of the most significant in all of Thailand. Lanna Kingdom, which covers a huge part of the north of Thailand, has always been prosperous, and the area where Chiang Mei is currently located is amazingly picturesque.
Founded by the Rattanarithikul couple, the Museum of Natural Wonders presents an extensive collection of various tropical insects and minerals. Also there are mysterious natural objects. Chiang Mai is located on a hill, among small mountains, and there is no such humidity here as in coastal cities and, especially, on islands.
There is no sea here, and therefore Chiang Mai is significantly less popular with tourists, compared to other regions of Thailand. But those for whom the presence of the sea is not the main thing when choosing a place of residence, Chiang Mai does not leave indifferent. There is enough entertainment in the vicinity of the city - riding on elephants and swimming, rafting, kayaking, eco-tourism, extreme jungle parks, etc.
The rainy weather is September and October, in Thailand it is the rainy season. In March, the fields under rice are burned around the city and permanent smog over the city, therefore March is the worst month to visit. April is a hot month, but very beautiful, Chiang Mai turns into a garden city, everything is blooming. In April, there is a very funny Songkran festival - the Thai New Year.
