WHERE TO STAY
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!
Fly direct from Singapore with Singapore Airlines and Bangkok Airways. Airasia flies direct from Kuala Lumpur.
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.
