Chiang Mai Overview

Chiang Mai is Thailand's second city, but in terms of quality of living, tourist attractions and development potential, it is second to none in Southeast-Asia and - arguably - the world.

The city is famous for her friendly people, beautiful women, refined handicrafts, cool climate and stunning mountain scenery.

More than three-hundred temples, among them some of the most beautiful and revered in the entire Buddhist world, give the city an atmosphere of calmness and timeless elegance.

Chiang Mai has a distinctly international atmosphere with many foreign businesses and organizations (NGOs) locating in the city over the past decade due to her excellent infrastructure with international direct flight connections to all countries in the region including Korea, Japan, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Burma, Cambodia and Taiwan.

The quality of living is neigh unsurpassed. Accommodation and food are of the highest standard and available at a very low cost. Entertainment is plentiful with numerous festivals, outdoor activities and a great nightlife.

Genuine adventure is to be found in the immediate vicinity of Chiang Mai with jungle tours, rafting, elephant riding and hill tribe villages to visit.

Shopping is great, be it for handicrafts, clothes or luxury items. Everything can be found at great prices in stores ranging from small family-run shops to world-class luxury outlets and shopping malls.

In a 2002 survey by Asiaweek Magazine Chiang Mai was ranked as the 9th most livable city in Asia east of Kabul. Everyone visiting or living here would attest that it's in fact Number One.

We hope that this web site will help you plan your visit to this amazing city and to Northern Thailand! We are convinced that you will stay in Chiang Mai longer than you initially planned!
