Chang Mai, Thailand

Even if you have never been there, you know that Thailand is one of the most popular destinations in the world. Culturally and historically interesting, the country’s diversity continues to attract travelers with its exotic charm and captivating allures.

While its capital Bangkok has already positioned itself among the most visited cities in the country, the country has so much more to offer. For those who want to experience a much greener and quieter travel, head on to Chang Mai, the biggest and most significant city in Northern Thailand.

In 2014, TripAdvisor listed Chang Mai as one of its 25 Best Destinations in the World. Any traveler or tourist who visits this destination can take advantage of its delightfully calm and laid-back atmosphere.  Here you will witness old and historic wats (temples) nestled amongst healthy forests and peaceful countryside.  Views of lush mountains and vibrant hills promote your such riveting and relaxing vibe. 

Locals, naturally friendly and warm, will introduce you to their unique customary activities.

Apart from its majestic wats (temples),  tourists can also visit elephant sanctuaries. Here you can watch elephants perform several tricks.  

Young and playful elephants are also there to melt your heart. It's truly fun and entertaining.

Orchids are also popular in Thailand and a lot of them can be found in Chang Mai orchid farms. Colorful, stunning, and mysterious at the same time, Thai orchids are adorned by many, making them the unofficial flower of the country.

Food is also among the many highlights not just of this city but of the entire country. It's no wonder Thai food has become a common choice of people in various countries, including the US.

Chang Mai dates back to 1200s. You will be amazed by its collection of ancient structures spread out across the city. Memoirs of the past still linger, giving you a glimpse of their historic past.  

Truly, this Northern gem is not just remarkable in its own way, I can easily say that this destination can be anyone's cultural and natural nirvana.

Until next time, I am you friendly global traveler, Johnny, inspiring you to keep on traveling until you satisfy your wanderlust.
