The Legend, Chiang Rai

At every corner you turn in this small kaleidoscope of a city you’ll discover a new delight. It could be a festival parade featuring golden dragons or floats bearing impassive statues of Buddha. It could be an intricately carved temple like Wat Phra Kaeo, a school teaching the language of the scriptures, a Black Temple museum, a shop selling local fine art or a street market bursting with life, colour and bargains.

Or it could be The Legend. This glorious hotel combines the traditions of Thai architecture with modern style and sophistication. Shaded by spreading rain trees, it stands on the banks of the Mae Kok River; a haven of lotus ponds, waterfalls and tranquil gardens frequented by butterflies and birds. Minutes from the city centre.
