Young Buddhist monk

Photos of the beautiful city of Chiang Mai with its numerous temples. We count more than 350 in town. During religious festivals the population lives in the temples. You will find portraits of people: children, monks, novices and women from Chiang May This second largest city well worth a visit. In the region of Chiang Mai you will see beautiful scenery, elephants, tigers also. Good trip to Thailand.

Chiang Mai, Chiangmai, Chiang Mai or Chiengmai nicknamed the "Rose of the North", is the sixth largest city of Thailand (the second in considering the agglomeration as a single city ), cultural and economic center of the North of the country and capital of Chiang Mai province. The municipality of Chiang Mai covers Si Phra Singha, Ya Chang, Chang Chang, Wat Gate and Pa Tan. It also covers parts of Chang Phuak, Suthep, Sun Pung, Nong Hoi, Tha Sala, Nong Pa Phuang and Fa Ha.

Chiang Mai has become a modern city. The city offers many attractions for thousands of foreign visitors. Its historical significance comes from its strategic location near a southern branch of the ancient Silk Road, long before the modern influx of foreign visitors. The city has been a center renowned for its crafts, parasols, jewelry (especially silver) and wood carvings.

Chiang Mai Province has a population of about 1.6 million, including 250,000 in Chiang Mai City itself. If we take into account all the communes around the amphoe muang (administrative division) of Chiang Mai, we arrive at a figure of 600,000 to 700,000 inhabitants. © Imagens Emmanuel Buchot
