Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand after Bangkok and has in excess of 300 temples including the breath taking Doi Suthep Wat which is second only to Bangkok’s Grand Palace.

Chiang Mai is also the home to interesting and colourful ethnic minorities, known as the hill tribes. Because of its size and character as the central city of the north, Chiang Mai also hosts many immigrants from Burma, many of whom are Shan and Karen. They have their own language and their own culture, and many are hoping to eventually return to Burma.
