I am a big fan of Chiang Mai for so many reasons, which fundamentally starts with its beauty that is so different from other Thai tourist locations I have visited. There is so much to do in this region and the fun can start as soon as you arrive at the airport, because it is located right in the town centre,
Much of Chiang Mai is located in among leafy mountain terrains, so do bring your camera as there are awesome photo opportunities on just about every turn. There is also stacks of things to see and do, one of which is the world famous Chiang Mai zoo – mainly due to its resident panda.
I took my family to this zoo and we all had a genuinely excellent time.
