Chiang Mai

 With its temperate climate, mountainous terrain and colourful mix of hill-tribe peoples,  Northern Thailand is a very special destination for many travellers. Located 650 km north of Bangkok, Chiang Mai is Thailand's second largest city, the heart of this historic and beautiful region.

Chiang Mai offers its tourist visitors a good selection of available activities from white water rafting to city temple tours & trips to see traditional Hill tribes people,  so you can be sure you will get cultural and some adventure experience whatever you choose to see and do in Northern Thailand.  The City of Chiang Mai originally built inside a fort offers a wealth of sightseeing attractions, with the most popular being Wat Prathat Doi Suthep temple, located on top of a mountain which offer stunning views over the city.  Taxi's and tuk tuks are easy to get, and prices negotiable.  Being in a land of skilled people it would be a sin not to buy some of the local handicrafts on offer in Chiang Mai's night bazaar, and local shops, and again use your bargaining skills where ever you are shopping!

Listed below are some of the popular places to see while you are in Chiang Mai, and if you are considering booking a golf package with us, then make sure you make some time in between golf to take on one or two of the below excursions. (Map)

Chiang Rai

The ancient city of Chiang Rai was once the capital of the fabled Lanna kingdom. It was founded in 1262 by king Mengrai as he began to extend his domain southwards. According to legend the city was built on the spot where he found his favorite elephant. He felt that the site along the banks of the Kok River was an auspicious one and thus Chiang Rai came into being. ( Map )
