The Four Seasons Chiang Mai - Wowzas

The Four Seasons Chiang Mai - Wowzas

I have been dreaming of visiting the Four Seasons Chiang Mai ever since I first came upon it doing hotel research for a story ages ago. Its signature landscape, treetop-style bungalow-meets-pagoda design and just overall exoticness has stayed with me over many subsequent years of hotel research.  Thus, when the opportunity to actually visit presented itself, I leapt, literally, off the ground, in sheer glee.

I have had many friends and family visit the property since my interest had been peaked and I peppered them with Viagra Online questions upon their return. One might dare call it an obsession. Each person I asked said the same thing, “It’s incredible”. Of course, they often had varying elements that stood out based on their individual interests, but everyone, EVERYONE, commented on the beauty of the scenery.  A pronounce aesthete, I was smitten and even staring at the photos above, having taken them myself, I’m still, just as smitten.

The afternoon I arrived

The evening torches

I arrived late afternoon and was greeted with a soft, darkening dusk light that made the property even more alluring upon first sight. Then, as I was changing and readying myself for the evening, the staff had lit torches throughout the property’s marshy land, ensuring my obsession was justified all along.
