Discover Chiang Mai multi-centres

Thailand’s second largest city, Chiang Mai has a very different outlook to Bangkok. And sitting as it does at the heart of the cultural north, it offers a markedly contrasting - but complementing - experience to a typical beach experience in the south.

A favourite Thailand combination unites the nation’s capital city with the northern cultural capital of Chiang Mai – but this time also combined with the magical holiday island of Koh Samui or beaches of Phuket. An ideal combination of city, culture and pristine beaches and a classic Thailand holiday itinerary. Direct flights operate between Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Koh Samui.

Choose any of our featured hotels as part of your holiday – many of which also have special offers for Kuoni customers. Call us on 0844 4880116 or visit us in store to speak to one of our Personal Travel Experts and tailor make your own holiday with Kuoni.
