About Chiang Mai Attractions

Chiang Mai used to be the province of the Lanna kingdom. In the present time, it is a blissful and laid-back city ideally chosen by travelers to relax and recharge. You can either take part in a host of activities performed here to simply discover the vastness of the city. The atmosphere and ambience of the city will never disappoint you.

Chiang Mai is located 700 km (435 miles) from the north of Bangkok and outlooks a lush valley running through the banks of the Ping River. It was in the year 1296 that Chiang Mai was founded and named as the capital of the ruling Lanna Kingdom. At present, it is an example of that city where the past and present seamlessly merges into a wonderful city with modern buildings, heritage and green landscape. You might feel that Chiang Mai is a quiet city amidst the bustling capital but still be surprised by its rich tourism. The city of Chiang Mai is flecked by virgin rainforests and gurgling waterfalls along with peaceful, little villages. Chiang Mai, Thailand is also famous for its markets and distinguished elephant sanctuaries.

Chiang Mai etymologically refers to “new city”, and has been doing justice to its name since 1996. History has it that King Meng Rai founded the city as the capital of the Lanna Kingdom during this year. It was also that time when the Sukhothai Kingdom was established. As King Meng Rai himself was a religious person by nature, he supervised the construction of the city’s famous temples that still find a place here. One can experience the wonders of two worlds simultaneously in Chiang Mai - the historical and the modern. You will find pagodas and temples which are centuries-old. Chiang Mai also offers some of the best adventure activities such as trekking and rafting. You can also locate some modern convenience stores and custom-made hotels. The people of Chiang Mai are true to their culture and thus one can find a number of elephant camps around the place. Chiang Mai remains one of the most beautiful destinations in Asia. For a traveler, Chiang Mai simply has a host of experiences to offer. For a resident here, Chiang Mai is the home one returns to!

Chiang Mai is bordered by Myanmar in its north. The Shan state of Myanmar is actually the border state of Chiang Mai in Thailand. The interesting thing is cross-border trade takes place here between the Kew Pha Wok checkpoint and the Ban Lak Taeng checkpoint. These places are also major tourist sites. On its South, Chiang Mai is engulfed by Amphoe Sam Ngao, Amphoe Tha Song Yang of Tak Province and Amphoe Mae Ramad. Some of the major attractions here are - Sam Ngao Cliff, Bhumibol Dam, Mae Kasa Waterfall, and Thee Mo Bo Waterfall.

    • Trip to Chiang Mai

      Thanks to travel triangle full team and special thanks to Gurpreet and Pooja for the memorable trip to Bangkok and Pattaya. It was my first foreign trip and believe me it was amazing and one of the best trip. Everything was well organized as per our preferences. Really appreciate the whatsapp group which was active for 24×7. Hats off to the services provided it made our stay very smooth. Hotels are good..but pattaya's hotel was little far from the market where we ended up in spending a lot in transportation as dinner was not available in hotel or nearby. Specially on first day, upon arrival on Pattaya hotel at night after being so tired we had to go market to have some food though we are damn tired. Day 2 in coral island is highlight of our journey. Bangkok hotel's location was good but little small compared to Pattaya's hotel. Trip was worth of penny and yes we returned home with wonderful memories. Looking forward for more trips with your team and will also recommend travel triangle to my family and friends as well. Thank you!!☺️

    • Trip to Chiang Mai

      A professionally arranged and perfect planned trip for 7 days. Good Job team Travel Triangle led by Gagan. The pick ups and drops at each airport was ontime. The resort in Phuket was good, but still they could have some tie ups with better resorts. The resort in Bangkok was very bad. They made us wait for one hour and half hours in the lobby for the room. Inspite of us reaching at 2.00 pm in the afternoon, we got the keys only at 3.40 pm. The rooms were not rich and we were forced to adjust for two nights. The travel itenary and the the arrangements at the tourists spots was too good. Overall nice memories we had to carry back to our country. Improvement required is only on the selection of resorts.

    FAQ's of Chiang Mai

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Before heading to Chiang Mai, pack the essential and emergency kit. If visiting during monsoon, carry umbrellas; if visiting during summers, pack sunblock lotions and cotton garments. Do not forget to pack your first aid kit.

    Local transport system is very efficient in Chiang Mai. The LRT and MRT are secure and cheaper modes of transportation.

    Chiang Mai is definitely one of the safest travel destinations in Asia. Nevertheless, it is suggested to look after one’s own safety during travels and tours.

    A well-planned tour of Thailand may include Chiang Mai tour. However, if one wishes to cover only Chiang Mai then it is advisable to book a separate tour for the same.

    Due to its strategic location in the Northern part of Thailand, Chiang Mai may be visited any time of the year. Factually, the Winter months are most favored by tourists.
