Considered Thailand’s cultural capital, the 700 year-old city of Chiang Mai offers a plethora of experiences from the historic to the cutting edge of artful. Our favourite Buddhist temples around town include Chiang Mun, Chedi Luang and Phrasingh. These ancient worship sites give visitors a feel for Lanna, Burmese, Mon and even Sri Lankan influences on Thai Buddhist art and architecture. Kindly note, in accordance with local custom, females must cover their shoulders and legs for these visits.

Seriously fit travellers should mount the 290-step Naga serpent staircase to the gilded Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Temple, Chiang Mai’s most sacred Buddhist temple. Those more devoted to shopping will find their nirvana just ten minutes by taxi from The Chedi Chiang Mai along Nimmanhaemin Road, where young Chiang Mai designers integrate traditional weaving techniques into the latest international clothing styles and innovative home wares.
