Most cities around the world have meaningful names that are deeply tied to their history. This much is true for Chiang Mai – the ”New City” of Thailand. Centuries ago, the kingdom of Lan Na was ruled by King Manrai. Back then, Lan Na’s capital was a city called Chiang Rai. However, Mangrai decided to reform Lan Na during the late 1200s. As part of Manrai’s reforms, Chiang Mai took Chiang Rai’s place as the capital of Lan Na. Fast forward to the present day, and Chiang Mai remains an important economic, educational, and cultural hub for all of Thailand. The New City’s festivals are some of the grandest spectacles you’ll ever witness, and Chiang Mai’s food is exquisite.
Despite what one might expect, Chiang Mai has a relatively small population. About 127,240 citizens live in the New City. However, about 10 million tourists visit the city every year – or about 83,000 per month. All of these numbers contribute to Chiang Mai’s higher than average crime rate. Violent crimes and property related crimes are relatively frequent in Thailand as a whole, let alone Chiang Mai. You can still have a fantastic time visiting Chiang Mai. However, you will need to familiarize yourself with the city's laws and customs. You’ll also need to take even greater care of your property during your trip. Bounce can help you do just that. We’re a luggage storage service that’s available near major transportation hubs and tourist attractions.

The best way to get around Chiang Mai is to ride the rails. The New City has subways, trains, and trams that can easily help you cross the city in minutes.
“Is public transportation in Chiang Mai safe?”
Yes, however, the number of buses in Chiang Mai is extremely limited. This can lead to impacted bus rides and late arrivals on particularly busy days – two situations that thieves may try to capitalize on.

Chiang Mai’s Old City district is one of the best places to stay. It’s very accessible to tourists, and it’s located smack dab in the middle of the city.
“What are the best museums to visit in Chiang Mai?”
The remains of several ancient palaces can be found in Chiang Mai. Sites like Bann Phor Liang Meun, the Wat Ket Karam Museum, and Monfai certainly fit this bill. However, Wat Phra That Doi Kham is perhaps the most popular exhibit in Chiang Mai.
“What’s the best time of year to visit Chiang Mai?”
The period between October and April is usually the best time to visit Chiang Mai. The New City’s weather is arguably at it’s best during this time of year.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
