Hidden places in Thailand: where no tourist has gone before
Mae Hong Son is the capital of the northernmost and sparsely populated province of the kingdom. The town is not very popular among tourists, but in the understanding of the indigenous people, this is the historical center of northern Thailand. Here you can still stumble upon the Karelians, who are very different from the southern Thais and are one of the rarest peoples in the world. They wear rings around their necks, they have very unusual rituals and rituals. Also in the city is the most winding serpentine road in the world, consisting of 1864 turns. The deepest cave of Southeast Asia is located on this road, and along the way you can see many waterfalls and, of course, the famous rice fields, striking in their complex structure and beauty.
3. Chiang Mai
Chiang Mai is another northern treasure trove. Here, in a relatively small area, there are over 300 Buddhist temples, so every traveler who comes here feels a calm and relaxed atmosphere. In one of the temples, you can see a monk sitting in a glass box in a state of Samadhi. In the spring of 1949, he was struck by an incurable disease, and, according to one version, the soul of a monk left his body in meditation, leaving him imperishable, which showed the limitlessness of human capabilities.
Chiang Mai is especially attractive during religious holidays, when all the temples are decorated with bright colors and fabrics, and their courtyards are filled with traditional street food stalls. Since vegetables are grown in this town, portions of salads, according to travel expert Yulia, are perhaps the largest in Thailand.
Chiang Mai is also considered one of the most popular places for freelancers and remote workers to work and live. It is full of cozy co-working spaces, low cost of living and a large number of interesting people from all over the world. The best stop for productive work! .jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
