Chiang Mai is located on the Ping River in Northern Thailand and dates back over 700 years. Surrounded by high mountain ranges, it is considered one of the most scenic areas in the country. Unlike most of Thailand, the climate in the northand especially in Chiang Mais cool, fresh, and misty. The region is full of lush jungles, national parks, and over 300 Buddhist temples. Historically and culturally important for trade, Chiang Mai province is the second largest province in Thailand.
Thailand is strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia and is an important center of the region. Thailand has a population of 67 million people, 95 of whom are Buddhist. Although industrialization and modernization have brought energy to the lifestyle in Chiang Mai, one can still find beautiful old temples and palaces among the skyscrapers. The saying that Thailand is the land of smiles is still true, especially in the rural areas where traditional agrarian lifestyles survive. While eastern and southern Thailand is famous for its seaside resorts, the north and west are well known for its peaceful mountains and hilltribe treks. Thailand is a tourist gateway and the friendliness of Thai people makes travel in Thailand and the surrounding region easy.
