The region of Southeast Asia is home to a wealth of breathtaking and fascinating travel destinations. In this guide to Chiang Mai, Thailand, I am going to show you why this mountainous city in the country’s north has long been considered one of the region’s top destinations. It is Thailand’s second largest city and is home to over 300 different Buddhist temples. Because of this, the city has been nicknamed the “Temple Capital of Thailand”.
In addition to the staggering number of spectacular temples to explore, the city also has some of the most delicious food in the world for visitors to enjoy. With daily markets around town, finding freshly cooked, authentic Thai food is never difficult. Not to mention, because Chiang Mai is one of the most affordable places to visit in the world, shopping and eating out every day won’t break the bank.
