Four Star Chiang Mai hotels

Chiang Mai manages to be many things for the Thailand-bound: a base for exploring the mountains of northern Thailand, a refuge from the heat and crowds of Bangkok, and a spiritual sanctuary with its temples and monks. A sense of adventure still lingers in the mountains and moats of the walled ‘Rose of the North. Take your time to slowly explore to truly savor your luxury vacation in Chiang Mai. Chiang Mai is a city that deserves to be explored—to be savored, not rushed.

Things to see in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai's many temples stand out as the must-see attractions of Old Town, especially the 14th-century Wat Phra Singh. Outside, you’ll find its glistening white tower or chedi. Inside, it boasts a mural that wows with its intricate network of red lacquer and gold. Wat Chedi Luang is the biggest chedi in town, partly in ruins due to an earthquake. But the most impressive Buddhist temple is the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, sitting atop a 3,000-foot mountain a few miles out of Chiang Mai. If you want to get the full story of these temples and of the city's long history, visit the Chiang Mai City Arts & Cultural Center. This modern museum houses artistic treasures that date back more than 10,000 years. The Phu Ping Palace (Royal Winter Palace), with its lavish gardens, is also well worth a visit—provided the Royal Family are not in residence.

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

A stay at one of the 4-star hotels on Chiang Mai's elegant Old Town streets—enclosed by magical moats and surrounded by temples—is certainly hard to resist. The hotels here are a mix of discrete, low-rise modern affairs, and older luxury hotels, lounging around tree-lined courtyards or pools. Along the Loi Kroh Road, you'll find several larger modern hotels, some with lovely views of the River Ping. The four-star hotels in Chiang Mai's Nimmanhaemin Road, northwest of the Old Town, are mainly bigger contemporary hotels. This upscale area is where Chiang Mai's best shopping is to be found, as well as a vibrant scene at night.

How to get to Chiang Mai

When you travel to Chiang Mai by air, you will arrive into Chiang Mai International Airport. Only domestic airlines fly direct to Chiang Mai, international carrier change at Bangkok. Many hotels offer convenient transfers from the airport to the hotel. You can also get to Chiang Mai from Bangkok by train—an overnight sleeper means you'll arrive at the city refreshed. First-class coach services operate from the Thai capital to Chiang Mai. Once here, you can easily get about on foot, by taxi, or on a local bus. But the iconic, brightly colored tuk-tuks are a great, local way to get around town.
