The North Area of Thailand

Chiang Mai Street Food VendorChiang Mai and Chiang Rai are the two best known tourist areas in the north of Thailand

Chiang Mai Province is the second largest province in Thailand, with the city of Chiang Mai as its capital around 700 km from Bangkok. Visitors here can enjoy elephant trekking and visit a wealth of natural and man made attractions, Wat Doi Suthep being the premier pilgrimage location.

Chiang Rai Province is the furthest north of the provinces at almost 800 km from Bangkok. Here visitors can experience fine trekking and seek out the hill tribes of the Golden Triangle. Famed for the excursions that take you from Thailand across borders to Laos and Myanmar (Burma) and back.

Kamphaeng Phet Province on the south edge of the north area is little known by tourists and visitors.

Lampang Province, 600 km from Bangkok, is a little known by tourists. Here time has tried to stand still - and horses still draw carriages are still a form of transport.

Lamphun Province is known for its arboriculture and orchards, as well as the ancient temples. About 670km from Bangkok, Lamphun Town has a reputation for beautiful Thai women!

Mae Hong Son Province to the west of Chiang Mai has a long border with Myanmar (Burma) and the provincial capital is known locally as the "Town of Three Mists" as it is shrouded by mist for most of the year - through the three Thai seasons.
