Warm hospitality and good manners.....the land of fascinating, mist-shrouded mountain scenery and fertile valleys....the land of religion with nearly 1,100 Buddhist temples....and the land of Thai art and handicrafts.

These are some attractions you can find in Chiang Mai, an old city of 700 years which still retains its natural charm and old culture. If you have a chance to visit this paradise on earth, you will understand why people call it " The Rose of the North."
