Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second largest city and is the economic center of Northern Thailand. It is very different from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. It is known as the “Northern Rose” for its fresh and quiet atmosphere. The home of the Lanna Kingdom, Chiang Mai is awash with a charming, classical atmosphere. There are many quaint, beautiful temples inside and outside the ancient city. The unique Northern Thai-style pagodas are majestic and stylish in design, home to modest and friendly monks who are happy to speak with visitors. There are many shops full of unique surprises along the criss-crossed streets, along with all kinds of restaurants, coffee shops and massage parlors. The lively night markets are a fascinating attraction that are a favorite among visitors.

Wat Chedi Luang

Temple
roses_are_rosiewas design during 7th dynasty of mengrai. Wat Chedi Luang isn't as grand as Wat Phra Singh, but its towering, ruined Lanna-style chedi (built in 1441) is much taller and the sprawling compound around the stupa is powerfully atmospheric. The famed Phra Kaew (Emerald Buddha), now held in Bangkok's Wat Phra Kaew, resided in the eastern niche until 1475; today, you can view a jade replica.

Chiang Mai Thailand’s rose of the north # The Loy Krathong Water Festival of Lights# takes place every November, and it is best to participate in this traditional festival in Chiang Mai.# Thousands gather together to light and release the sky lanterns, where Chiang Mai holds a grand skylight event, with sky lanterns lit in the night sky. The scene is very spectacular.

Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai, the capital of Thailand during the Lanna reign, is also an important birthplace of Theravada Buddhism. The city is scattered with more than 100 temples, and is referred to as the Northern Buddhism capital. The three famous temples in the ancient city of Chiang Mai, Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Phra Singh and Wat Chiang Man, each have their own special characteristics. On Doi Suthep Mountain from the Ssangyong Temple, you can look out over a panoramic view of the city. The forest temple Wat Umong outside the ancient city, and Wat Suan Dok with its excellent sunset scenery, are also worth a visit.

Koh Chang left Bangkok, but there is no airport, so Chiang Mai can't reach Koh Chang directly. It takes a bus from Bangkok's bus station. Bangkok East Bus Station has a ticket window, buy a ticket and go directly to the hall to wait for the departure.
