Chiang Mai is not just a beautiful city but it has amazing culture and food. Some of the best Thai food I had on my trip was from this province. Everything was just so full of flavor and spice.
We visited Chiang Mai on a whim, but now I regret not having spent more time there. We only spent two nights but managed to try some great dishes including Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, Tom Yum, and Khao Soi. The food in Chiang Mai was hands down the best out of the three cities we visited.
The flight from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is only an hour and can cost as cheap as $30. Here are a few photos of the food we tried. Enjoy!
