Chiang Mai Travel Guide

Includes Free Book: Muay Thai Training

"Why You Need to Train in Thailand"

Chiang Mai is one of the most fascinating cities not just in Thailand, but in the whole of Southeast Asia. Bangkok has its neon nightlife and 24/7 buzz, Pattaya and Phuket are home to some of the finest beaches in the world, but Chiang Mai is the spiritual heartland and roof of Thailand.

It is the backdoor to the Himalayas and houses all of Thailand's tallest mountains and over 300 temples: some of which list among the most impressive in the world. You might relax at the beach, but Chiang Mai is where you come to truly chill out and discover yourself.

From its walled old city, to its mountain temples, to its numerous city-wide festivals - Chiang Mai is the best place to go to see traditional Thailand at its most glorious. But this ancient tradition and history comes together to meet the modern world in Chiang Mai.

You will discover a thriving art and music scene, some of the most delicious food to be found in the entire Kingdom, and a local population that knows how to entertain guests and celebrate life.

In recent years, not only has tourism to the area grown quickly, but so has the ex-pat community, with artists, pilgrims, and travelers from the world over making Chiang Mai their new home. This means that local knowledge is not restricted to just being told in Thai anymore.

Unlike most Thailand travel guides where you are given huge swathes of information that you can't possibly use, here you will get to know just the city of Chiang Mai as a local does. Don't get caught out by tourist traps or touts, discover the best sites, tastes, beds, and entertainment, and pay the right price for them.

OMG poor pronunciation

The narrator can't even pronounce the city name. Never mind baht, song teaw, or Muay Thai.... Horrible

Buyer beware

This audiobook is actually the combination of a very short travel guide to Chiang Mai combined with an entirely different book about how to set up a fitness business in Thailand. There are a couple of good items in the Chiang Mai book but it's mostly the reading of lists of hotels and restaurants. Lame.

Cool

The book is quite heavy on history, as the history of this beautiful city is fascinating.There's plenty of background information, loads of photos, and a ton of links. The book is not only a guide book, its a tribute to the people and history of this outstanding city.
