Northern Thailand is a complete contrast to the bustle of Bangkok, and the areas main town, Chiang Mai, is an excellent starting point. Chiang Mai is Thailand's second city, and is far smaller than the capital, retaining a more traditional atmosphere, despite recent growth. Elsewhere, the towns of Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son, plus the area known as the Golden Triangle, are all worth exploring. Chiang Mai is around an hour's flight from Bangkok.

Chiang Mai offers a good insight in to Thailand's fascinating culture, with dozens of accessible temples in the city, craft villages demonstrating local trades close by, and a wide range of foods on offer. Try a cookery course if you have time! Evenings are a great opportunity to buy a few local crafts in the excellent night market, or try traditional food at a Kantoke evening of traditional Northern cuisine.
Chiang Mai is a relatively small city in comparison to Bangkok, so location isn't as important. Many of the City's hotels are located close to the walls of the Old City, with those to the east - closer to the river - also offering easy access to the renowned night market. Other towns in the area have more limited options in terms of hotels.
A few days in Chiang Mai will give you enough time to visit the highlights of the city - or allow longer if you want to explore the countryside around. It's easy to combine Chiang Mai with other parts of Thailand, including Bangkok and the beaches of Thailand. Our holidays to Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand are very flexible so just let us know what you have in mind!
Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son are all reached by flight from Bangkok in about an hour. Chiang Mai has the most regular connections, with onward direct flights to Phuket and Koh Samui. Flights to Bangkok are available from various UK airports - holidays shown here are based on direct flights from Heathrow, for the most straightforward journey. Flights from Gatwick and Manchester are available, often at a lower price, while departures from other UK airports are also available.
