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.
Travel Highlights of Chiang Mai
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.

We got a tour guide and rented a van to take us around Chiang Mai. We went to see the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, Orchid Jade Factory and visited the Wat Chedi Luang Temple.
What we ate?
There’s lots of food places around Chiang Mai. Nearby the hotel, there was a burger place that we tried and it was really good. And we also ate dinner at the hotel, they had curries and other Thai dishes.
Overall, I had a great time visiting Chiang Mai. My favorite was going to the night market. And seeing the different temples. I hope to visit Chiang Mai again.
