Places to stay in Chiang Mai
With long, leafy boulevards, Chiang Mai presents an alluring alternative to the Thai capital, Bangkok. Instead of traffic-choked urban sprawl, travellers find a picturesque downtown easily navigated on foot, where the air is clean and the climate mercifully cool.
Most visitors to the northern capital are staying in one of the main central areas; the Old City, Riverside and Night Bazaar – each of which offers its own atmosphere.
The vibrant Night Bazaar ensures a great base from which to explore the many faces of Chiang Mai, while the riverside area offers a tranquil retreat complete with great nearby restaurants. Catering to a range of budgets and aesthetic preferences, Chiang Mai hotels are some of the best value for money accommodation in the world.
