The Rose of the North’, former capital of the ancient Lanna kingdom, and one of Thailand’s largest cities—these are titles that are synonymous with Chiang Mai, a historical region that has been in existence since late in the 13th century. Parts of this heritage are captured by remnants of old walls and moats that can still be found around the city, amidst its growing list of modern attractions. It sits along the Ping River, and lies approximately 700 kilometres north of Bangkok.
