Northern Thailand with its temperate climate, mountainous terrain and colorful mix of hill-tribe peoples, is a very special destination for all travelers. Located 700 km north of Bangkok overland, Chiang Mai is one of Thailand’s most significant cities, and the heart of this historic and beautiful region.
Traditional Northern hospitality opens its arms to visitors as they walk among the old wooden temples and two-story houses of the ancient walled city built more than 700 years ago. Despite the long history of Chiang Mai, the city also has a cosmopolitan side offering all that western visitors can demand including movies, restaurants, shopping malls, museums, cultural places and accommodation of all categories. This quickly developing city with its ancient charm is now on of South East Asia’s top all-round destinations. Furthermore Chiang Mai with its surrounding valleys and mountains, offers a wide range of great adventure opportunities! This is one of the reasons that we have chosen Chiang Mai as Active Thailand’s Headquarters.
