Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai literally means "a new city" but it is not. It was founded by King Meng Rai more than 700 years ago and it became the center of Buddhism in North Thailand. Chiang Mai is famous for its chedis and temples, its access to hill tribe villages nearby and its fabulous artcrafts and markets; but it also features great boutique hotels,cooking schools and breathtaking scenery.

Among the many things to do there are elephant and tiger camps to visit; river rafting; hill tribe trekking and of course spa indulging.
