It is not only for its rich history and strong sense of cultural identity that Chiang Mai is Thailand’s second city; the restaurant scene would certainly give Bangkok a run for its money. With over 25 vegetarian restaurants and an abundance of European, Thai, Asian and Middle Eastern eateries sprinkled around the city, you won’t lack for variety.
Offering a profusion of styles and flavours to eat and settings in which you can eat them, it really is like a global food fare. The Night Bazaar area has a selection of cuisine as vast as the products on sale there and more importantly it’s incredibly reasonably priced while not compromising on the quality or taste. Around the old and new city you can experience everything from 30 baht noodles on the street to haute-cuisine dining, variety is certainly at the core of Chiang Mai dining.
