Chiang Mai Map
Located 800kms north of Bangkok, Chiang Mai is easily reachable by either air, road or rail. The city of Chiang Mai (which means "new city") is one of Thailand’s oldest continuously inhabited settlements, dating back to its founding as the new capital of the Lanna Kingdom in 1296 by King Mengrai. The Lanna Kingdom flourished for at least 200 years, and this can be seen today in the wealth of antiquities that include numerous temples dating from the 14th century and beyond, such as Wat Chiang Man and Wat Prathat Doi Suithep. Even today, 600 years later, their beauty remains as a testament to the skilled craftsmen, wealth and organisation of the era.
