Northern Thailand

Culture and People


Northern Thailand plays host to numerous cultures and lifestyles. Even in the capital of Chiang Mai, a modern city, you can see tribal hawkers and stallholders rubbing shoulders with lowland Thai traders and vegetable sellers.

Such kaleidoscope of culture is evident in the colourful festivals, foods and beliefs of these varied folk.

The links on the left-hand menu bar will help you enjoy the wonderful variety that flourishes in this very special area.
