Chiang Mai, Thailand Bangkok may be the most popular destination in Thailand but it’s by no means the only gem the exotic country has got to offer. Known to locals and expats alike as the Rose of the North, Chiang Mai is home to the scenic Ping river, the famous Night Bazaar and a multitude of old temples within the historic city walls that date back to the 1200s. There is an endless list of things for you to do here, from Thai massages, to motorcycling tours, river cruises, water rafting and nature walks. And as testament to the rising tourism of the province, you’ll find big hotel names like the Four Seasons, Shangri-La and Mandarin Oriental in the city.
Dhara Devi Dhara Dhevi Chiang Mai, the resort’s unique design draws from the region’s rich architectural and cultural heritage that flourished during the Lanna period. Offering some of the world’s most spacious and exclusive accommodation, the 123 luxurious villas, colonial suites and signature residences have been sympathetically crafted in keeping with traditional Lanna architectural styles.
