Future Regional Destination
Chiang Mai is the land of beauty, warm hospitality and good manners; the land of fascinating, mist-shrouded mountains and fertile valleys; the land of religion with over 1,100 Buddhist temples; and the land of Thai arts and handicrafts. More than 700 years old, Chiang Mai has rooted its culture so deeply that it has its own dialect, its own architecture, its own costume, its own dances and its own cuisine. Though modernization has crept into this faraway region for decades, Chiang Mai still retains its natural charm and old culture. If you have a chance to visit this tourist paradise, you will understand why people call it "The Rose of the North".
