Rose of the North
Accessible by an overnight train from Bangkok, Chiang Mai Province seems a world away from the rest of Thailand. The mountain ranges of this area shelter abundant vegetation and wildlife, and provide many chances for adrenaline-inducing outdoor activities. Most visitors come to raft, hike, and bike the forested hills, but you can also take a more relaxed approach to your Chiang Mai vacation by exploring botanic gardens, experimental farms, elephant sanctuaries, hot springs, and the numerous temples scattered across the area. The center of traditional cottage industries, Chiang Mai houses lots of workshops turning out handcrafted silverware, pottery, and silk clothing--all of which make classic souvenirs.
