Modern-day Chiang Mai has expanded in all directions, but particularly to the east towards the Ping River (Mae Nam Ping), where Chang Klan Rd, the famous Night Bazaar and the bulk of Chiang Mai's hotels and guest houses are located.
As with the rest of Thailand there are three seasons.
Most hotels and some upmarket guesthouses offer cheap or free pick-up/drop-off services.
Note that the public bus system is generally not used by many people, and has few buses operating.
Chiang Mai (เชียงใหม่) is the hub of Northern Thailand and the Capital City of the Province of this name.
With a population of over 170,000 in the city proper (but more than 1 million in the metropolitan area), it is Thailand's fifth-largest city.
