A CULTURAL & NATURAL WONDERLAND DESERVING EXPLORATIONChang Mai is Thailand’s ‘Rose of the North’, a cultural and natural wonderland with ethnic diversity, a multitude of attractions and welcoming hospitality. The old city of Chiang Mai is a showcase of the north’s fascinating indigenous cultural identity that includes diverse dialects, a delectable cuisine, distinctive architecture, traditional values, lively festivals, numerous handicrafts workshops, northern style massage, and classical dances. Chiang Mai is also blessed with pristine natural resources including mountains, waterfalls, and rivers.
The quieter neighbour of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai is a land of outstanding natural beauty, where visitors looking to avoid the hordes can visit remote hill tribes, spot rare wildlife, and check out the golden triangle, the former centre of the world’s opium trade, where Thailand, Laos, and Burma come together. Recently tourism has boomed in Chiang Rai, where visitors have come to explore the pristine natural beauty of the countryside and immerse themselves in the indigenous culture, including those of a variety of different hill tribe communities. Fortunately for tourists, Chiang Rai is also a centre for community development projects, helping rural villagers develop their attractions without adversely affecting their natural and cultural assets.
