The former capital of the Lanna Kingdom in the 13th century, Chiang Mai today continues to serve as a cultural and administrative centre of Northern Thailand.
Though the metropolitan area of Chiang Mai has a population of more than a million, the historic centre has a laid-back atmosphere more akin to a provincial town than a capital city. Beyond the Old City there is vast green countryside and rainforests ideal for trekking and exploring the ethnic minority villages.
