Those of you looking for an inspiring retreat can find comfortable and luxurious accommodations at The Chedi in Chiang Mai. This 5 star hotel is situated along the banks of the Mae Ping River and in walking distance of the city’s Night Bazaar and Day Market.

When I visited, the spacious courtyards and pool areas were beautiful and immaculate. I really loved the contemporary Asian style and design throughout the resort. The rooms exhibited great attention to detail and the finest materials. The staff was helpful and provided excellent service.
