Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand. The city is known as a treasure trove of artistic architecture due to its many heritage sites and temples. In addition to taking a stroll through the historic city to experience the grandeur of the Lanna dynasty, the traditional cuisines of northern Thailand, jungle zipline tours, various natural sights and a pleasant climate all year round have all made Chiang Mai a top destination for visitors to South East Asia.
