The Chiang Mai's tourism trade hasn't been too brisk over the past 5 years.

Chiang Mai and Lamphun, Lampang and Mae Hong Son decided to join hands and play a more proactive role in reversing the situation.

In the Miracle Tourism Forum held last weekend in Chiang Mai, representatives from tourism-related government and business agencies from the four northern provinces of Thailand gathered to show their intention to fight this battle together. Tour agencies, the buyers, from Bangkok were also invited to meet and directly discuss business with operators of hotels, resorts and local attractions.

During the first Miracle Tourism Forum, awards were handed out to many locals who have made considerable contributions to the tourism business.

Selected hotels designed in traditional northern style were presented with the Lanna Hotel Collection Awards. This year, the top honor went to the Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, while recipients of the two outstanding awards were Rati Lanna Riverside Spa Resort and Khum Phaya Resort & Spa.
