Chiang Mai



 


What :

Offering a distinct mix of cuisine, language, and culture, Chiang Mai blends these unique flavors into an East meets West, ancient meets modern cocktail delightfully consumed by travelers on luxury tours of Thailand.

The capital of Chiang Mai Province, and the economic seat of power for the Golden Triangle Region (where the borders of Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar meet), Chiang Mai’s history dates back to the 13th century when the capital of the Lanna Kingdom was moved here by King Mengrai.

Travelers here enjoy the luxury and opulence found in Bangkok while experiencing the distinctive cultural flavors of Northern Thailand. The food and architecture, influenced by trade with China, Myanmar, and Laos, is as distinct as the Northern Thai dialect spoken in outdoor bazaars by the vendors on Walking Street.

With the lush, green mountains as a backdrop, visitors have access to a plethora of activities in Chiang Mai. Excursions like the eco-friendly trip to the jungle canopy with Flight of the Gibbon, elephant treks, and visits to the ethnic hill tribes are all popular itinerary items.


When :

The best time to visit is November to February to enjoy the surprisingly brisk weather near the mountains. August through September rains make the jungle bloom with life.

The Songkhran festival, April 13-15, is particularly popular time to come to Chiang Mai for the Thai lunar calendar New Year. For three days the so called ‘Rose of the North’ celebrates the end of the summer heat with a city wide water fight.


Where :

Located in Northern Thailand, the best way to reach Chiang Mai is via flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai International Airport.


Who :

The unique blend of old Thai culture and modern development make Chiang Mai a must-see destination for tours in Thailand.


Appropriate Attire :

Western wear is acceptable for most excursions, but if you plan to visit any of the hundreds of temples in the area, it’s best to dress conservatively covering shoulders, arms, and legs.

Jason & Cindy Burgess - October 2013

My family and I took a two week long tour of Thailand with Easy Tours of Thailand and the trip truly could not have been any better.

Our guide was very personable, knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. In addition to offering a unique and local perspective throughout the tour, we were completely at ease with her and felt that she truly wanted to make our experience the best it could possibly be.

The private driver and vehicle that was set up for us was also excellent. I knew prior to our trip that it would probably be best to reserve this type of service during our travels, but I had no idea how invaluable this ended up being for us. He maneuvered through crowded streets and unexpected roadblocks with ease, and knew which areas to avoid driving through and efficient alternative routes. To top it off, the vehicle was always very clean, air conditioned, and there were cold drinks waiting for us after visiting a site.

The tour itself was completely tailored to what we wanted to see and what our interests are with assistance from their U.S Sales Office prior to arriving in Bangkok. They provided a day by day itinerary for us which was great, but the best part was having the freedom to change things as needed, or make unexpected stops to explore, as the tour unfolded.

I would definitely use this company again if we go back to Thailand.
