Chiang Mai : Michelin's recommendations
Situated in a magnificent location surrounded by mountains on the banks of the River Ping, Chiang Mai is not just an open-air museum – nowadays it is a dynamic modern city which has also retained much of its traditional heritage. Visit its delightful temples, which are busy with monks and worshippers, and admire the work of local craftsmen and women who are renowned for their fine teak and silver work, their fabrics and umbrellas. If you can, try to visit Chiang Mai in November, when the town is decorated with lights and the fascinating Loy Krathong festival takes place here.
