Travel Highlights: Chiang Mai Thailand

Travel Highlights Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is a city located in the northern region of Thailand.  The city is known for its beautiful scenery and landscapes, as well as its shopping markets.  It is also a very popular tourist destination. Many people from all over visit this city, and has been known as one of the best destinations in the world.

After our trip in Bangkok, my family and I took an over night train going to Chiang Mai.  The ride took about 8 hours.  When we reached Chiang Mai, we had a driver picked us up from the station.  My first impression of Chiang Mai was that the weather was much cooler compared to Bangkok.

Where we stayed:

We stayed at the Rimping Village hotel.  The hotel is located at a neighborhood behind a main high way.  It’s a relaxed and well maintained resort with friendly staffs.  There’s a pool, restaurant and other services in the hotel.

FYI:  Rimping Village was on the top rated hotels in TripAdvisor, that’s how we found out about it.
