Best Hotels in Thailand
Courtesy of Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai
Just outside Chiang Mai proper, 12 poolside villas look onto rice paddies, the hotel's resident water buffalo, and the Mae Rim Valley. Garden Pavilion rooms have deep-soaking tubs and outdoor salas with Thai daybeds. Try your hand at the preparation of noodle soup with chicken or dry spiced curry with pork at the resort's cooking school.
