"Why You Need to Train in Thailand"
Chiang Mai is one of the most fascinating cities not just in Thailand, but in the whole of Southeast Asia. Bangkok has its neon nightlife and 24/7 buzz, Pattaya and Phuket are home to some of the finest beaches in the world, but Chiang Mai is the spiritual heartland and roof of Thailand.
It is the backdoor to the Himalayas and houses all of Thailand's tallest mountains and over 300 temples: some of which list among the most impressive in the world. You might relax at the beach, but Chiang Mai is where you come to truly chill out and discover yourself.
From its walled old city, to its mountain temples, to its numerous city-wide festivals - Chiang Mai is the best place to go to see traditional Thailand at its most glorious. But this ancient tradition and history comes together to meet the modern world in Chiang Mai.
You will discover a thriving art and music scene, some of the most delicious food to be found in the entire Kingdom, and a local population that knows how to entertain guests and celebrate life.
In recent years, not only has tourism to the area grown quickly, but so has the ex-pat community, with artists, pilgrims, and travelers from the world over making Chiang Mai their new home. This means that local knowledge is not restricted to just being told in Thai anymore.
Unlike most Thailand travel guides where you are given huge swathes of information that you can't possibly use, here you will get to know just the city of Chiang Mai as a local does. Don't get caught out by tourist traps or touts, discover the best sites, tastes, beds, and entertainment, and pay the right price for them.
