Mini Guide for Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai literally means “the new city”, even though it celebrated its 700th anniversary in 1996. 
There is so much to see and do in Chiang Mai, a lot of it “something different” rather than just the usual historic places of interest on the tourist trail.  The old city of Chiang Mai does have several historical temples well worth a visit, but it also has numerous workshops teaching Thai massage, dance, and cookery.

Why not hire a car in Chiang Mai and explore for yourself?  You can fly into Chiang Mai Airport and pick up your hire car there.
