Diamond Resorts - Vacations for Life - Thailand: Beauty, History and Tranquility

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - May 26, 2015) - Surrounded by spectacular mountains and the northern Thai countryside, Chiang Mai offers spectacular sceneries and beautiful ancient temples. Chiang Mai has become an increasingly popular destination and a favorite for many visitors. Even though it's the second largest city in Thailand, there are only 250,000 people living there. The city is small and intimate, and almost everything is within walking distance. But do not be fooled, in this area there is much to see, and countless ways to create priceless memories. Make sure you plan your trip well and enjoy your Vacations for Life®.

Chiang Mai is a city built on the roots of a traditional heritage, rich in cultural personality. Set among the hills of Chiang Mai is the Royal Bella Vista Country Club at Chiang Mai, the perfect getaway for those seeking tranquility, natural beauty and affordable luxury choices. Styled like a European village with cobbled streets, flower-covered cottages, spectacular gardens and gently flowing streams, this getaway offers isolated indulgence for those who want to be spoiled, and never-ending activity for those who love the great outdoors.

Rich in both history and culture, Chiang Mai is a city full of things to do and to see. Here you can find over 300 Buddhist temples, great shopping, an abundance of markets, tasty Thai food and numerous outings. Chiang Mai truly has something for everyone! Don't miss out on visiting the Tha Phae Gate -- a 700-year-old, red brick wall located in the central area of Chiang Mai. This is the perfect meeting spot since it is hard to find a real "center" in this city. It is recommended to take a walk around this magnificent wall, which used to be the only entrance to the city.

Another popular landmark is Wat Chet Yot -- one of the many beautiful temples you can find here. This 15th century sacred temple is a must see when in Chiang Mai. Imbibe the fascinating culture and learn about the temple's interesting history. With its natural beauty and unique history, Chiang Mai is an ideal place to Stay Vacationed.™
