Chiang Mai University

Chiang Mai University Thailand

Nestled in the northern Thai hills, Chiang Mai is the cultural heart of the country. Here you’ll find a true blend of traditional customs and modern life as bicycle rickshaws share the roads with cars, students still wear traditional Lanna (northern Thai) clothing to school, and street stalls split space with trendy new cafes. Explore the region’s 300 Buddhist temples, the street markets and the local food.
