Add a Point to the Map

Chiang Mai Province is a region in Northern Thailand.

Chiang Mai is situated at 300 meters above sea level in a large mountainous area. Located approximately 700km from Bangkok, Chiang Mai province is famed for its gloriously high mountain ranges, plentiful flora and fauna and crisp fresh weather. The province in Thailand is one of the country’s largest, covering 20,107 square kilometers.

The actual meaning of Chiang Mai itself is “new city” and it was founded as the capital of the Lanna Kingdom in 1296 by King Meng Rai. Chiang Mai not only acts as the capital of the kingdom, the province was established as the religious center of the north and so innumerable temples have been built.
