Guide to Chiang Mai & Hotels: Anantara Chiang MaiI  Resort & Spa
Guide to Chiang Mai & Northern Thailand Hotels
Chiang Mai is located over 400 miles to the north of Bangkok and set amongst the highest mountains in the country, offering superb views. This culturally signifi cant city features historic temples, markets and an interesting old walled town. Further north is Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle. An area home to several hill tribes with fascinating ways of life.
Chiang Mai is served by regular scheduled services from Bangkok; a flying time of 70 minutes. The airport is 2 1/2 miles from the city, with a journey time of 15-20 minutes. We can arrange for you to be met on arrival at the airport and a private car transfer to your hotel from £8 per person.

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is Chiang Mai’s most important landmark, and overlooks the city from its forested mountain backdrop. Further afield visit a hill tribe village for a sample of modern tribal life. An elephant-back ride through the lush jungle is a pleasant way to experience the spectacular scenery.

When to go
Chiang Mai is warm all year round but the coolest period is November to February - temperatures are a maximum of 25°C, with an occasional chill in the mornings. Temperatures rise to a maximum of 40°C during the hottest period from March to June and some visitors may find this period too hot. The wet season lasts from July to October. Downpours and high humidity occur. Rainfall is unpredictable so a few dry days can be followed by a few wet days. Temperatures at this time average 30°C.
