  Chiang Mai Guide  -  historical town in northern Thailand
To foreign visitors, Chiang Mai's mountainous landscape and distinctive culture prove to be fascinating, not to mention its moderately cooler temperature in winter than those of many other provinces in Thailand.
Once the capital of the ancient Lanna Kingdom, Chiang Mai exhibits many cultural characteristics of its own, including the Lanna language, Lanna-style architecture, and Lanna costumes. Local crafts, particularly wood carving, paper umbrella making, and silk weaving also find reputation as the finest in the country. Furthermore , six major local hilltribes - the Karen (Kariang, Yang), the Hmong (Meo), the Yao (Mien), the Akha (Ekaw), the Lisu (Lisaw), and the Lahu (Mussur) - also call Chiang Mai their home.

History of Thailand

Independence: 1238 (traditional founding date; never colonized

Thailand's origin is traditionally tied to the short-lived kingdom of Sukhothai founded in 1238, after which the larger kingdom of Ayutthaya was established in the mid-14th century. Thai culture was greatly influenced by both China and India. Contact with various European powers began in the 16th century but, despite continued pressure, Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country never to have been taken over by a European power
