Best Hotels in Chiang Mai, Thailand: Cheap & Luxury Accommodations

by Accommodations, Thailand2 comments

Discover the charm of Thailand’s “Rose of the North”. Compared to buzzing Bangkok, Chiang Mai is much more laid-back with its surrounding countryside (making it a favorite amongst remote workers). After all, it is in this place where you can gaze upon stunning mountain landscapes, hidden waterfalls, abundant wildlife, and lush rainforests. (Hotels in Chiang Mai)

Once the capital of the Lanna Kingdom, it is also home to a multitude of ancient temples like Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and Wat Chedi Luang. But make sure to soak up the city’s sights too, taste some authentic Northern Thai dishes, and shop from the diverse street markets.
