Nestled amid misty mountains and the scenic landscape is the beautiful city, Chiang Mai. The city is surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful architecture and is a relaxed answer to all the chaos of Bangkok, Phuket and other cities of Thailand. The city attracts and captivates its visitors with its sightseeing activities, trekking expeditions, spiritual awakening or traveling from one temple to another. The place has inherited its rich culture from the communities living deep in the mountains. But the city is not just about traditions but has a unique blend of modernization too. The nightlife of Chiang Mai (although is of shorter duration than Bangkok, Phuket & Pattaya) keeps visitors, as well as locals, entertained. There are a lot of places to explore when in Chiang Mai, namely Wat Phra That Doi Suthep- a must-see place where you reach after hiking up the mountain, Doi Pui- a small touristy village, Doi Inthanon- the highest peak in Thailand, Bua Thong Sticky Waterfalls, and many more. When in the city, tourists need to savor their taste buds at Chiang Mai Gate Market where vendors set up every night and sell spicy meat and basil dish to perfect mango and coconut dessert. Apart from Sunday Chiang Mai Gate Market, the Sunday Walking Street is a must visit place in Chiang Mai for all the foodies and shopaholics. Night Bazaar is another shopping market that attracts a lot of tourists. So, eat, shop and roam like a local in this small yet captivating hill town of Thailand.
