Chiang Dao

Chiang Dao is a town in Chiang Mai Province, Northern Thailand. Chiang Dao lies above the Mae Nam Ping Gorge on the green slopes of Doi (“mount”) Chiang Dao.

The name means “city of stars”, and derives from its earlier name piang dao, or “(at the) level of the stars”.

True to the name, limestone peaks reaching a height of 2,186 m (7,174 ft) make Chiang Dao an impressive area. The village is a quiet little picturesque area, with a quaint northern Thailand feel.
