Chiang Mai Flights Guide

Chiang Mai offers rainforest reserves, waterfalls, hot springs, forest wat, country villages, elephant sanctuaries, adventure camps, and craft markets. Unsurprisingly, many of Chiang Mai's top attractions are wat, aka Buddhist temples that have been around for hundreds or thousands of years.
