When SGA first started its scheduled flights making the city of Chiangmai the aviation hub, our pilots discovered that the natural beauty to be seen is far beyond our expectations. It is one of the best tourist attractions that we have to present to the public. And this kind of sight-seeing is already well-known and popular around the world."

But, after the north Thailand route is widely recognized, domestic tourists will start to try and like the views also. Today, Chiangmai remains the destination for culture.
