Newest Review: ... in the old quarter have to be its many temples known in Thailand as wats. For such a small area there really are a large number of temples available to explore. I would recommend doing them all in one go so that you can appreciate the different feel of each individual temple as well as gaining a good understanding of the Buddhist religion. If I had to recommend one to visit I would say Wat ... more

Chiang Mai is the largest city in northern Thailand and second only to Bangkok in terms of facilites and things to do. The city is split in two: the old quarter of the city which is symbolised by the moat that surrounds it and the four gates that allow entry (the old quarter was protected by city walls) and the more progressive new town which contains a vast array of restaurants, bars and shops with the night bazaar a particular highlight. I stayed in the old quarter of the city which is easy to explore because it is a relatively small square area within the city walls. The old quarter is generally pretty quiet but I enjoyed the ambience of the place. The ... Read the complete review

Chiang Mai was an unfortunate disappointment. Having spoken to a relative who'd visited the place, albeit some years ago, we arrived expecting a cultural mecca, a place of beauty, culture and history. Instead we were greeted by back packer hostels at every corner. Western style burger or pizza joints as every other building and tuk tuks charging even more than those or the taxis in Bangkok! Chiang Mai was a tourist swamp, there was little to see that was not touristy or unspoilt. It was dirty, somehow soul-less and the ever present old men with young Thai girls made me feel uncomfortable. Having said that, there were some positive aspects. There ... Read the complete review

Chiang Mai is in Northern Thailand and sometimes referred to as the Capital of the North. We found this city to be a lovely relaxed city to spend a few days. When we were there we stayed in the Old Quarter of the city which is surrounded by a moat and a (now fallen down) wall. Something to experience whilst in Chiang Mai is its famous night bazaar. The night bazaar is an enormous night market, selling lots of local handicrafts, clothes, shoes...pretty much everything you can imagine. A great place to get some souvenirs and presents for family and friends (if you're feeling generous). One disadvantage of the market is its size, we spent approximately 2 hours ...

When I decided to go travelling, everyone who'd been to Thailand told me that I had to go to Chiang Mai, so after I'd done a bit of reading up I realised that it would be ridiculous to miss it. We decided to end our travels in Thailand, mainly to top up our tans! We arrived into Bangkok and after one night there decided to head down to the islands in the south west. We spent two glorious weeks island hopping before heading on up to Chiang Mai. We decided to get the train up from to Chiang Mai as, the buses weren't that comfy and the horror stories about people stealing from your bags were terrifying. We had to get a minibus from Phuket to Surat Thani, where we ... Read the complete review

Chiang Mai is a city of northern Thailand that I visited when I was in Thailand last year. I travelled from Bangkok to get to Chiang Mai. It took about twelve hours on the train. You can fly in about two hours. This is more expensive. From the train you get to see the countryside which is quite worth seeing, and train travel in Thailand is an experience, as I have written it my previous reviews. The train was comfortable and on such a long journey there is no choice but to book a bed. There are two meals offered, dinner and breakfast, and these are good quality although a bit more expensive than normal food. If you want to read more about ... Read the complete review
