Travellers who have had enough of the noise, traffic and bustling hustle of Bangkok, and need a change from stunning golden beaches, should head to Chiang Mai. A stimulating yet relaxed city in the north of Thailand where a common phrase is “sa-baai sa-baai” meaning, “it’s all good”. Offering a range of attractions, from elephant trekking, to Muay Thai, Chiang Mai is a must stop in a Thai travel agenda.

Most Farrang (foreigners) stay in one of the budget guest houses, and whether arriving by plane, train or bus, there will be plenty of tuk tuks waiting to get their commission by dropping travellers off at one. Most of these accommodations also offer tickets for the popular trekking tours and will organise everything with a minimum of fuss.
