June 02, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News highlights people who enjoy taking to the green for a friendly round of golf during their breaks away from home may want to book Chiang Mai hotels during June to take advantage of the final month of the Chiang Mai Golf Festival.

Having kicked off at the beginning of May, the event will run until June 30th, offering locals and visitors alike a chance to play on 12 different courses.
