Chiang Mai is in the north of Thailand and is the second largest city in the country. Chiang Mai is very different from Bangkok. There are few high-rise buildings, but all the more small streets and squares. The many temples shape the image of the city. The weather in January is excellent for European visitors. Chiang Mai is never too hot and never too cold. We found that very pleasant. The traffic isn’t quite as crazy as in the capital either.
The area in and around Chiang Mai has a lot to offer, but we did not have enough time – a reason to come back.
