THE NORTH
The fine weather, the mountainous scenery, the exquisite handicrafts and the rich northern Thai culture are some of the charms of the North. Chiang Mai (697 km), the second biggest province of Thailand, provides visitors with a host of places of interest, such as, Doi Suthep, Doi Inthanon, Bhubing Palace, etc. Chiang Rai (785 km), located at the northern tip of Thailand in the very heart of the Golden Triangle, gains fame from its scenic views, exotic hill tribes and exciting elephant back riding tours. Lamphun (670 km) is a town of beautiful women, bountiful orchards and ancient temples. Lampang (599 km) is the sole province in Thailand where horse-drawn carriages are still used as a means of transportation. Phrae (643 km) is known for the northern costume called mohom and Phae Muang Phi, a small area of weird earth formation. Lying in the north-western corner bordering Burma, Mae Hong Son (942 km) is well known as the "Town of Three Mists" because it is mist-shrouded throughout most of the three seasons. Sukhothai, the first capital of the Thai Kingdom, is known for its historic sites.
