Make a holiday home, bungalow, villa, condo or house in Northern Thailand, Thailand your home away from home

Thailand may be most famous for its beautiful beach resorts and islands in the south of the country, but Northern Thailand is a real hidden gem in South East Asia and shouldn’t be overlooked. Thailand’s far north borders with the Asian countries of Burma and Laos and can offer quite a different holiday experience to places like Bangkok, and the busy coastal resorts. Self catering accommodation in Northern Thailand is perfect for holidaymakers who want to experience the real Thailand!

Things to do on holiday in Northern Thailand, Thailand

Holidays in Northern Thailand are a little different to those in the south of the country, yet no less spectacular! Northern Thailand features some wonderful scenery and this is certainly a destination that will be popular with holidaymakers who enjoy outdoor activities. Trekking up into the mountains in this part of Thailand gives plenty of reward, or you can try some even more adventurous activities such as bungee jumping, and whitewater rafting.

Of course this is also a peaceful part of the country, so you may just want to relax in the privacy of your Northern Thailand holiday villa, enjoying the swimming pool and the warm weather.

Places to visit on holiday in Northern Thailand, Thailand

There are many places that you can visit from your Northern Thailand accommodation. The largest city in the region is Chiang Mai, a city well known for its spectacular temples. There is plenty more to see here too, such as the ancient City Walls, museums, and gardens. There is also an elephant camp here where you can ride an elephant, or visit the Chiangmai Zoo where there are over 7000 animals to see.

Other attractions in Northern Thailand include national parks such as Chiang Dao National Park which is best known for its caves, and numerous other national parks where trekking is particularly popular.

The weather in Northern Thailand, Thailand

Holidaymakers who find the South of Thailand a little too hot will prefer to spend time in self catering accommodation in Northern Thailand as this part of the country can be a little cooler!

Taking popular Chiang Mai as an example, the hottest month is April with an average high of 36C (97F), whilst December is the coolest month with an average high of 28C (83F). Rainfall is possible throughout the year but the wettest months are between April and November, with August and September being the wettest.

Flights to Northern Thailand, Thailand

                                      Loved the luxury of this place. It was very nicely kept with everything we needed, and maid service came twice during our 8 day visit, although there was one day where we totally ran out of toilet paper and had to go to public restrooms, which also are not too dependable in that department. We also loved the use of the two bicycles, which we had a chance to use several times. The location was great to catch the taxis otherwise. The desk people were very helpful. One thing that would have been helpful was to know the name of the place Galae Thong Towers at the time of booking, as this is how all the taxi drivers know where to go, not the street name. The street name was actually wrong on the listing and did not help us to get there.

                                      Overall an excellent experience. Host was extremely helpful, accomodating and friendly. We even met his family. Airport pick up and drop off was so appreciated. Panya's friend Amoo (ph) was awesome. His English was superb. We booked him as a guide to Doi Inthanon and he had everything arranged for us. The house was fresh and clean with lots of extra amenities. Thank you Panya and Amoo for giving us an exceptional holiday.
