It is believed that Thailand attracts visitors primarily as a beach rest destination. However, this city is for those who like to keep their eyes and mind wide open. Here you will find as much as 300 vats (Buddhist temples), each of which deserves special attention and description. You can get acquainted with culture of this ancient nation by visiting culinary schools that teach attendants the secrets of most famous Thai dishes. However, traditional festivals that are frequently held in the city are the most interesting ones. These are the three-day long Flower Festival and Loi Krathong, as well as Songkran devoted to New Year (according to the local calendar). During the days of festivals thousand yearlong traditions of the finest folk flourish in all their glory.
Don’t forget to visit the wonderful Doi Suthep-Pui National Park famous for its picturesque Doi Suthep Mountain. If you visit this place, you will understand why this city with its amazing nature and wide choice of unique ancient monuments is called a paradise for lovers of tourism.
