In the mountainous north is Chiang Mai, Thailand’s second largest city. Despite its size, Chiang Mai feels more like a village than a large city. The walled, historical center feels small and familiar and is full of lovely shops, temples, and outstanding restaurants. 70% of the province, of the same name, is mountainous and covered by jungle, which means that you can be surrounded by nature or at the foot of a waterfall in no time at all.
We adore Chiang Mai and understand why many expats have made it their home. The kindness of the Thai locals and the cool climate act like a magnet. Add to that the vibrant nightlife and the fact that living there is cheap, and it’s not very hard to understand that Chiang Mai is just amazing!
