CHIANG MAI, THAILAND
In Thai, Chiang Mai means "new city," but in this ancient kingdom new is a relative term. Founded by Lanna settlers in the 13th century, Chiang Mai was once the capital of northern kingdom of Lanna (meaning one-million rice fields). Situated between picturesque mountains and the Ping River, this ancient capital was carefully planned with a moat and protective walls whose remnants mark the heart of the city today. Dotted around the city you will notice many beautiful Buddhist temples or "wats" dating back as far as the 14th century, an eye-catching testament to Chiang Mai's rich Lanna background.
