Discovering Chiang Mai’s Old City

Chiang Mai is northern Thailand’s largest city and Thailand’s fifth largest; it’s not as progressive as Bangkok but it has its own charm — itย is slow yet lively, oldย yet exotic, it is also filled with culture and history. To better appreciate Chiang Mai, Hubby and I decided to stay 15 minutes outside the Old City by tuktuk (read about our resort here), taking advantage of the life outside the City walls, but closeย enough that we can commute there in a quarter of an hour.

Driving from Chiang Mai International Airport to the Old City isn’t a spectacular experience but once you arrive in the Old City, everything transforms in sight.
