Chiang Mai is the largest and most culturally significant city in northern Thailand. It is the capital of Chiang Mai Province. Chiang Mai means "new city" and was so-named because it was the new capital, founded in 1296.

In recent years, Chiang Mai has become an increasingly modern city and has been attracting over 5 million visitors each year, of which between 1.4 million and 2 million are foreign tourists.

The city has also recently positioned itself to become a Creative City, and is considering applying for Creative City Status with UNESCO.
