Product Description: 

Chiang Mai is the most important city in northern Thailand. It is located within a fertile river valley. The City of Temples was founded in 1296 and was once the capital of Lanna Thai, Kingdom of a Million Rice Fields and the center of the first independent kingdom in Thailand. Two hundred ninety steps lead up to the city's main landmark, the mountain temple of Wat Doi Suthep. Chiang Mai Zoo was inaugurated in 1957 and today it is the largest and finest zoo in Thailand. The village of Bo Sang is located nine kilometers from the city. Parasol are manufactured according to old tradition, with silk, cotton and paper parasols made by hand. A visit to a training center for elephants is a fascinating experience. Chiang Mai's evening market is worth a visit.
