Transportation to Chiang Mai

Description

Chiang Mai is the hub of northern Thailand. With a population of over 170,000 in the city proper (but more than one million in the metropolitan area), it is Thailand's fourth-largest city. On a plain at an elevation of 316 m, surrounded by mountains and lush countryside, it is much greener and quieter than the capital and has a cosmopolitan air and a significant expatriate population, all factors which have led many from Bangkok to settle permanently in this "rose of the north".

One of the most livable cities in the world. Much more laid back than Southern Thailand. Chiang Mai is affordable, exciting, and plenty of excitement.
