WHERE TO STAY

Escape! Malaysia - - Thailand -

Once again, there are many di­verse ac­com­mo­da­tion choices in Chiang jai. But for a truly lux­ury ex­pe­ri­ence, the Shangri-la Chiang Mai would be your best bet. It is an en­chant­ing sanc­tu­ary in it­self, equipped with top qual­ity Thai spa fa­cil­i­ties. Ex­tend your hol­i­day re­treat and spend an en­tire day within this re­sort won­der­land to get your money’s worth!

GET­TING THERE

Fly direct from Sin­ga­pore with Sin­ga­pore Air­lines and Bangkok Air­ways. Airasia flies direct from Kuala Lumpur.

GET­TING AROUND

Like Sa­mui, pri­vate trans­port op­tions in­clude rental cars and mo­tor­bikes. Or else, hitch a ride on a tuk tuk or a songth­aew. The red songth­aews brings you around the city at a bar­gain of about 15 Baht. Other coloured songth­aews are also avail­able to bring you ex­plor­ing at dif­fer­ent out­ly­ing ar­eas in Chiang jai

WHEN TO GO

Visit from the end of Novem­ber to the mid­dle of Fe­bru­ary to ex­pe­ri­ence Chiang jai’s sig­na­ture cool tem­per­a­tures. The hot sea­son which runs from April to June might be too stren­u­ous for out­door ac­tiv­i­ties if you are not used to the heat.
