Description - Enchanting Chiang Mai & Northern Thailand by Mick Shippen

Chiang Mai is the natural capital of the north, a fascinating destination in its own right but also a starting point for exploring the country's most dramatic scenery with its remote hills, villages and mountain tribes. Chiang Mai itself is a moated and walled city retaining many ancient treasures but also rapidly evolving into a modern city with boutique hotels, chic shops and stylish restaurants serving the delicious local cuisine. It is also the centre of Thailand's art and craft industry. Wood carving, saa paper umbrellas and intricately painted pottery can all be found in the city or visitors can travel to the countryside to see the makers in their home villages. Beyond the city, this book takes readers on a tour of northern Thailand encompassing the elephant camp at Anantara; Doi Inthanon, Thailand's tallest mountain; the city of Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle; and the highlights of the Mae Hong Son Province. Whether trekking on foot or driving through the region, Enchanting Chiang Mai & Northern Thailand introduces all of the unmissable sights and scenery through its informative text and intimate photographs.
