A few months ago, I wrote about the Best of Hyderabad in conjunction with a project for AFAR. With a colorful history spanning over 400 years, Hyderabad showcases the best of North and South India. And now, National Geographic Traveler has also listed the "City of Pearls" as a Best Trip 2015! (Not surprisingly, India also made AFAR's list of Where to Go in 2015.)
Welcome to Rim Resort in Chiang Mai, Thailand! This boutique hotel - a Sodha Traveler favorite - is located in the Old Quarter near temples, markets, and shopping. Though the exterior architecture is colonial-Lanna style , there is a contemporary elegance in the furnishings and interior design. The property also offers complimentary wifi, a shuttle to the popular Night Bazaar, a rooftop terrace, and poolside bar.
