3 Reasons to Fly to Chiang Mai Now
The reason behind Qatar Airways flights to Chiang Mai in this season is obvious: these months are the best time to visit Chiang Mai!
1. Cold season in Thailand, for real
If you go up the doi (mountains) in Chiang Mai, brace yourself the occasional 0 degree experience and marvel at the seemingly endless sea of mist.
Few places in Thailand offer this kind of experience and Chiang Mai is one of them.
2. It’s the most colorful time of the year
Qatar Airways flights to Chiang Mai offer you the opportunity to see in Chiang Mai in full bloom. From December to February every year, various flowers bring colors to the province. If you’re tired of snow white, come to Chiang Mai and feel the flower power.
The most famous festival is the annual Flora Festival at Royal Park Rajapruek, which is held only from December to February. If you’re feeling romantic, visit Khun Chang Khien, Doi Inthanon and Doi Angkhang for rows of Wild Himalayan Cherry Blossoms in January and February.
3. Walk or bike around Chiang Mai Old City without the heat
Thanks to Chiang Mai’s location in the north, you get to enjoy the most pleasant climate in the country. When you’re in the city area, Chiang Mai’s average temperature in the colder months is around 22-23 °C (about 70 °F) and it often drops even lower. A welcome change from the virtually perpetual 30 °C (86 °F) in Bangkok and many other provinces.
With such great weather, we’re sure you’ll have fun exploring Chiang Mai Old City on foot or two wheels. Go temple and cafe hopping to your heart’s content. No need for cars and buses.
