Car Hire Chiang Mai

Cultural Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the capital of Chiang Mai Province. It is 700 kilometres (435 mi) north of Bangkok.

Chiang Mai is located on the Ping River and amongst the highest mountains in the country. It was founded in 1296 AD and is culturally and historically a very interesting city. For the more adventurous and actively inclined it also has a lot to offer.

There are many religious sites to visit including Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, the city’s most famous. It dates back from 1383 and stands on Doi Suthep a hill to the north-west. It is about 18 kilometres (11 mi) from Chiang Mai centre and easily reachable by local transport. The difficult part is the 300-plus steps you must ascend to get there, but don’t worry, there an enjoyable cable car ride to the summit. You can explore the Temple, Royal Palace gardens and a hill tribe village. Inside the old city walls is probably the best known temple in Chiang Mai, Wat Phra Singh. In the back of this marvellous building you can see the Wihaan Lai Kham; awe-striking murals of intricate gold patterns on red lacquer.

The Chiang Mai city Arts and Cultural Centre is located in the middle of the old city. Here you can follow a fascinating chronological documentation of the history and culture of the region up to the present day.

For the animal lover there is the Elephant Nature Park 60 kilometre (37 mi) north of the city, an easy ride away and the best excuse for a hire car. This is a sanctuary for rescued and distressed elephants. Here you will have the opportunity to feed and bathe the elephants.

For a relaxed tour of Chiang Mai take a river cruise. There’s a stop along the route at a local farm to enjoy traditional snacks and locally made juices.
