Holiday Inn Chiang Mai - 526 rooms (44 suites)
318/1 Chiang Mai- Lampoon Road, 5000, Chiang Mai, Thailand
Once was Westin. At first, the slick high-rise on the Ping River may seem out of place in this city of ancient temples, but once you stay here, you will easily be reconciled to the stylistic incongruity. As the Second City of the country, Chiang Mai had long deserved an international luxury hotel with all the frills. Surrounded by bucoloc fields and the lazing river, this 20th-century emporium is all latest glitz inside: crystal lusters, valuable marble and fine silk.
Holiday Inn Chiangmai is the city's most spacious, comfortable escape for business and leisure. Whether sightseeing, shopping or hosting a business conference, seminar or banquet, Holiday Inn Chiangmai offers the most professional, friendly and relaxed setting that will exceed your every expectation.

Holiday Inn Chiangmai is a five minute drive from Chiangmai International Airport. With over 30 daily flights operating to and from Bangkok, Thailand’s capital is only 55 minutes away. There are several direct flights between Chiangmai and other major cities in Asia, firmly establishing it as Thailand’s second largest city.

The Resort

Four Seasons Resort - 70 pavilions
Mae Rim-Samoeng Old Rd. Chiang Mai
Formerly the Regent Chiang Mai.
Why does everyone always wish fro a desert island as an ultimate retreat from life's realities? Come to where the solitude is, and the beauty, and the style, and the charm, and, and, and.. Where early morning mists rise to unveil jungle-covered peaks surrounding the verdant Mae Rim Valley and beautifully designed rice fields with lily ponds and where the sun sets over artistically arranged stilted teak pavilions in traditional Lanna style and the leisurely luxuries of a better world. An hour's flight from Bangkok and a short drive north-wards from the 'New City' you will enter this pastoral enclave where the distant trumpeting of an elephant may herald your arrival and the tangible warmth of the gentlest people on earth definitely embraces you throughout your stay. Life in this lush tropical private hamlet is completely laid back. Tennis, golf, lazing around the landscaped terrace pool will make you forget about the desert island altogether.

The Business Lunch
The Gallery
25-29 Charoenrat Road
Cuisine: Thai
A serious gallery full of the most famous local artists' chefs d'oeuvre turned into a serious restaurant serving traditional Thai dishes from various parts of the country, even compromising a little with its faithful Western fans. An expansive dinner in the little Chinese shophouse or just a bottle of wine under an old tree on the banks of Ping River is a real 'epreuve d'artiste'

The Social Dinner
Le Coq D'or
68/1 Koh Klang Road, Nong Hoi
Cuisine: French/International
memories of Parc des Eaux-Vives in Geneva: manicured lawns, properly placed trees, little lanterns leading the way to a quaint chalet with French windows and warm hospitality. The expectation of good food, good wine, and proper service is not disappointed, either, Proprietor-chef Alan Telfer knows the art of a cheese souffle.

Romantic Dinner
Chec John (Coq Au Rico)
18/1 Airport Road.
Cuisine: International
French-Swish Khun John is a culinary jack of all trades. After more than a decade at the Coq d'Or he has set up his own one-man-show in a dining room evoking a Mediterranean taverna. In his tranquil villa near the airport, the maestro welcomes you personally to his charming home from home and concocts Franco-Italian specialties, presented by the pretty staff, himself.

The Thai
Baan Suan
51/3 km 2 Chiang Mai-Sankampaeng Road, Moo 1
Even an odyssey to the converted teakwood barns scattered across the expansive park would be worth the journey. The restaurant owner, a professor of Thai architecture, guarantees the authenticity of the setting. Reserve a table inside or dine al fresco on moo tung, sai a and other spicy Northern specialties with a cooling fresh-fruit salad and exotic ice cream for desert.

The Show Place
Sawai Rieng
308 Moo 1, Nong Pheung Soi 8
Cuisine: Thai
You may feel disoriented as you approach the bumpy track leading off the old Lamphun road. Partly floating on the shores of a small lake the rickety restaurant, owned by an artistic eccentric, offers a picturesque rustic setting. AS you are appeased by the view and the Northern and Central Thai specialties you will be caught up at last in the mood of the real Chiang mai


So you're scoured the Night Market and sat though a dinner-and-dance show at the Cultural Center or Khum Kaew Palace. No Patpong up here, so settle for the hotel bars and clubs. Docile amusement is a hit at the Westin's Stars and the Dusit's Music Room, a little livelier pace reached at the Orchid's downstairs Club 77. Real exuberance is roused at the Pornping Tower's Bubbles and at the old-times Old West on Huay Kaew Road. Or venture to The Riverside near The Gallery for live music before ending up at T's Tavern.


Handicrafts - Lanna Thai lacquerware, bronzeware, silverware, jade, embroidery, and teak furniture - are by themselves a reason to travel to Chiang Mai, and to the village-suburb of Borsang for a kaleidoscope of hand-painted umbrellas as art. The Night Market (6 pm to midnight) is the bazzar of folks and folklore, the galleries Gong Dee and Oriental Style the place for serious art. Gold-plated orchids shine at the Royal Orchid Collection, celadon and Benarong pottery at Prempracha's Collection.
