Thailand isn't just cheap hotels, fantastic beaches and wild nightlife, Thailand offers an astonishing culture to discover which puts a grin on just about everyone's face.
Northern Thailand is mainly surrounded by high mountain ranges, the mountain terrain is mainly jungle, parts of which is inside national parks which are still fertile and verdant with plentiful flora and fauna. There are a lot of sites and locations where holidaymakers prefer to visit to study the life style of the hill tribe people who live high in the mountains.
Chiang Mai is the tourist hub of Northern Thailand, it is considered one of the most scenic provinces in the country with its valleys, mountain ranges fauna and flora. One of the most popular things to do in Northern Thailand is going trekking up the mountain and spending a night or two with the hilltribes, it's a great way for the tribes to earn some extra cash and a great experience that shows you that you don't need a whole lot in life to enjoy it.
If you ever go to Thailand and wishing for a different experience than the usual touristy holiday, Chiang Mai and Mae Hong Son are good alternatives to explore.
