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.

Combine the culture of beautiful Chiang Mai, where modern conveniences sit side by side some of Thailand’s most historic relics with the unashamedly laidback beaches of some of its coastal retreats, a selection of which you’ll find below.
As capital of the north and Thailand’s second city, Chiang Mai is most travellers’ gateway to this exotic land. Further to the north, the Chiang Rai region is quieter and your gateway to the remote and mystical corners of Thailand that border Burma and Laos.
