Book Description

Popularly known as “The Rose of the North” and with an enchanting location on the banks of the Ping River, the city and its surroundings are blessed with stunning natural beauty and a uniquely indigenous cultural identity. Founded in 1296 by King Mengrai as the capital of the Lanna Kingdom, Chiang Mai has had a long and mostly independent history, which has to a large extent preserved a most distinctive culture. This is witnessed both in the daily lives of the people, who maintain their own dialect, customs and cuisine, and in a host of ancient temples, fascinating for their northern Thai architectural Styles and rich decorative details.

5.0 out of 5 stars All You need to know about the Chiang Mai Region ... November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
... and updated, too.

If You have read the synopsis above, You know yet something about this region of Chiang Mai, called 'The Rose of the North'.
The Kindle book edited by the Government of Thailand is full of every kind of Informations.
The Websites and Telefone Numbers are always updated.

This Guide covers the entire Province of Chiang Mai, founded 1296 by King Mengrai, and the most historical places around.
It surely is one of the most beautiful and interesting regions of the "Land of the Free", situated 700 kilometres in the north of Bangkok and the second city of the country.
You learn all about the city attractions, the out-of-city-attractions, festivals and other special informations.
The link in the voice" accomodations" gives You a large range of Hotels, Resorts and Guesthouses in Chiang Mai and all over the region with prices and is always up-to-date.
Other links for transportation for example.
Very very precise and useful!!!

Every province of Thailand, every Spot of interest are available for Kindle and
Kindle for PC, and there is a Kindle book for Thailand 2012-2013, too.

In the end, if You buy some extra files all together are much cheaper than all the "Globe, Traveler's, Shoestring" etc Guides, which are never really updated...
And here is everything firsthand!!

Only very basic information, in large font, all readily available on-line. Yeah, only a buck, but why waste it?
