Chiang Mai: Chiang Mai is located in Thailand’s largest region - the mountainous north. Here, elephants still work the forest and winter temperatures are sufficiently cool to permit cultivation of temperate fruits such as strawberries and peaches.

Chiang Mai has a striking mountain backdrop, over 300 temples and a quaint historical aura. It's also a modern, friendly, internationally-flavoured city with much to offer the visitor - food, accommodation and shopping are all top quality and cheap, and the nights are relatively cool.

Unless you don't mind almost daily torrential rain, the best time to visit Chiang Mai is between October and April, with the other months a virtual monsoonal washout. Festivals occur throughout the year, with the bulk of them between November and April. These provide a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the color and spectacle of traditional Thai culture.
