There’s a reason people fall in love with Chiang Mai. Northern Thailand’s largest city is home to buzzing night markets, ornate temples and delectable (albeit spicy) regional cuisine. And its cooler climate and more laid-back atmosphere is the perfect contrast to lively Bangkok—and certainly a great option to round out any trip to the Southeast Asian country.
But where does one stay? For first-timers, staying in—or near—the Old City (also referred to as “the square” as it’s boxed in by a moat) is often preferred. But repeat visitors find the bucolic countryside the best way to experience the destination.
Here are some of the best hotels in Chiang Mai—from budget-friendly boutique properties to luxurious resorts.
