Welcome to Chiang Mai

 Hello all travelers,

My name is Chris, the local people of Chiang Mai, northern Thailand as you know Chiang Mai is a city in mountainous northern Thailand. Founded in 1296, it was capital of the independent Lanna Kingdom until 1558. Its Old City area still retains vestiges of walls and moats from its history as a cultural and religious center. It’s also home to hundreds of elaborate Buddhist temples, including 14th-century Wat Phra Singh and 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang, adorned with carved serpents .

The reasons why you should visit Chiang Mai?

There are no beaches in Chiang Mai;
Chiang Mai is the second-largest city in Thailand but the cost of living is incredibly;
Good atmosphere, friendly people, beautiful places surrounded by forest and mountains…or whatever reasons; 

You may learn some information of traveling to Chiang Mai guide from many sources already and I guess all them presented almost the same places and activities right? Maybe yes or no but I thing most people say “yes” I’m here today is to introducing you the completely different things appeared in other Chiang Mai travel guide,. The secret is those of them from all online and offline sources will be recommend or presented only the most popular tourist attractions and activities you should do in Chiang Mai but did you know? there are almost paid for advertising and some of  them get the commission from travel agencies, hotels, restaurant and other owner of tourist business, it is the reason why you will be paid a lot following the guide.As mentioned here is the information and the best suggestion from real local people which is quite different from those of them and I don’t want you to missed the activities or popular local attractions that should visit and you will feel like this is the real Chiang Mai, first of all I would like to say apologize for my English because it may not good enough to write something perfectly but just want to recommend all of you to enjoy your day in Chiang Mai, in fact there are a lot of places and activities that make you have more fun here not only the different way of touring but also save a lot of your travel budget.

The General Information of Chiang Mai City

Chiang Mai or “Nop Buri Nakorn Pink”, the former capital of the Lanna kingdom, is considered an area of nature, cold weather, and diverse culture. Being a hub of several ancient realms, Chiang Mai has been a center of exchanging knowledge, religions, architecture, and commerce for centuries. This facet has created the unique Lanna characteristics.

People who came to settle in Chiang Mai brought with them handicrafts such as umbrella making, silverware, and woodcraft. Cultural traditions like the traditional New Year celebration the Lanna Songkran festival, and the ceremony of worshiping the Inthakin Pillar were also imported.

Tan Guay Salak is a communal festival that takes place every October in Chiang Mai and some other provinces. Men make bamboo baskets into which women place fruit, candies, and other delicacies. The container is then topped with money and presented to Buddhist monks in memory of the dead. It is given as an offering of thanks, remembrance, and to increase the chance for the living to merit a better reincarnation.

Many Chiang Mai rituals express the belief of religions and spirits. Such ceremonies are, for example, releasing hot-air balloons representing letting go all of one’s bad luck, the Great Sermon, lighting pot candles to pay respect to Buddhism and Pra Tat Toong, which is a long-pole flag made to accompany these religious ceremonies from birth to death. A defensive moat around the old town was created long ago. Along the watercourse are old fortresses called “jaeng” meaning corner in the local language. Within the square was the location of a palace of Chiang Mai’s old rulers (now a government service office), and many important ancient temples such as Wat Pra Singha with its delicate Buddha image hall or Wat Chedi Luang which has the biggest Chedi in Chiang Mai.

I believed that you must learn some of attractions or interested activities to do in Chiang Mai from many websites already and most of them just present the most popular attractions or activities for oversea tourist. Only a few people who can explore the real Chiang Mai city did you know why? those websites are supported by travel agency or other tourist business like hotel, restaurant or souvenir shop so they just only promote those places, but in fact there are a lot of interest places and activities to do in Chiang Mai. Please learn an important details below
