To discover a luxuriant universe, this province created from scratch by King Mengrai in the 13th century is ideal. Trekking, cycling and rafting are the flagship activities of the “Rose du Nord”. Less frequented by tourists than the South of Thailand, this region is worth a detour. Not to be missed if you travel to Thailand in November, the Chiang Mai Loy Krathong Festival.
Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second city behind Bangkok. La Rose du Nord is located in a fertile valley, that of the Ping River. This allows the inhabitants of the province to cultivate the poppy, which creates opium and morphine, and which is also used for baking.
The city is famous for its handicrafts with objects made from silver, wood and ceramics. All around Chiang Mai, you can go hiking and discover traditional villages.
Bangkok, the city with two faces
The Thai capital counts nearly 10 million inhabitants and swarms day and night. Separated in two by the railway, the old city with its markets and its many temples (more than 400) faces the new city and its innumerable buildings.
One of the city’s must-see monuments is undoubtedly the Reclining Buddha: 45 m long and 15 m high. This statue of Buddha on his deathbed can be seen at Wat Pho, the oldest and largest of Bangkok’s temples. Impossible to visit Thailand without going through the hectic Bangkok.
What to do in Bangkok during your stay?
In southern Thailand, the island of Koh Samui is the largest island in the area and the third behind Phuket and Koh Chang. Covered with coconut palms and bordered by white sandy beaches, Koh Samui is widely accessible, regardless of the means of transport.
North of Phuket, the province of Phang Nga is a diver’s paradise. Krabi is the most famous spot for indulging in underwater activities. It is the bay that is really worth a look: it is like speckled with a hundred uninhabited islets. There is no shortage of water in this region, since the bay is crossed by three rivers, thus offering various activities to tourists.
Koh Lanta is an archipelago of around fifty islands. Most of them are classified as National Park, covering an area of 152 km². These islands are covered with lush forest and bordered to the west by magnificent beaches.
Which season to choose to visit Thailand?
Thailand is a popular destination for tourists, who generally seek to enjoy its sun-drenched beaches and the smiles of its locals. For these, the best time to go to luxury destinations in Thailand is the cool season, which runs from November to February.
Corresponding to the winter months in Western countries, the influx of tourists therefore increases drastically and the prices charged by airlines and accommodation providers with it. Avoid the holiday season to visit Thailand if you want to take advantage of affordable prices, especially on the islands and at the resorts.
