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)”>
