Chiang Rai Province
Путеводитель по провинции Чиангмай
Провинция Чиангмай (เชียงใหม่) находится в самом сердце Северного Таиланда. Её столицей является крупнейший, и наиболее значительный в культурном отношении для всего северного региона, одноимённый город. Он расположен в долине реки Пинг, несущей свои воды на фоне самой высокой горной вершины королевства. Окружённая горами провинция имеет заметно отличный от других регионов климат. Горы являются причиной непривычно низких для южных регионов температур. В прохладный сезон с декабря по февраль средняя минимальная температура воздуха может опускаться до 14ºС и ниже. Уникальное для Таиланда сочетание климатических условий, потрясающе красивой природы, огромное количество исторических, археологических и культурных достопримечательностей делает Чиангмай не менее популярным направлением для отдыха, чем тропические пляжи.
