Travellers and activities
Chiang Mai is a favourite destination for tourists, especially those who want to get in touch with nature, because of all the activities it has to offer. You can start your adventure with hikes in the local mountains and forests, and go on a nature walk or a fun elephant ride. You can also visit native tribes, such as the Akha, Hmong, Karen, or Lisu to get a little more insight into the culture and traditions, which will definitely add a different touch (if you are a good traveller, you might already know that the best part of going to a new place will always be learning something new about its culture). Another trek that any nature lover can take is to Doi Inthanon, Thailand's highest mountain, and Pui National Park, where you'll find yourself surrounded by forests, mountain ranges, and a beautiful waterfall that will take your breath away.Chiang Mai for culture lovers
The best thing about visiting a new place is the chance to experience its culture, and that's something you can do here. Chiang Mai is one of Thailand's most cultural and historic cities and you'll never run out of things to do. If you're interested in more relaxed plans, the main streets and avenues of the city have plenty of places offering foot massages and even courses to not only get the best massages but also to learn how to do them. You can also stumble upon local museums, such as the City Art Museum, the Cultural Centre, the Hill Tribe Museum, and the Chiang Mai National Museum and enjoy all the talent this city has to show you. And, if you're lucky, you'll be able to coincide with some great events and festivities they usually have in this city, such as Loi Krathong, where the night is lit up with lanterns, which will be something you're sure to remember forever.
Chiang Mai has more than 300 Buddhist temples for you to connect with your spiritual side while learning more about Thai culture.
Top 7 travel tips in Chiang Mai
As we were saying, Chiang Mai has more than 300 temples and is what most characterizes this city, so it is worth adding it to your list of things to do during your stay in this city. There are probably 300 temples to visit, but you can start with the most outstanding ones, such as Wat Phra Singh, which is considered the largest and most prestigious temple in Chiang Mai, or Wat Chiang Man, one of the oldest and which has two very important Buddha images. And just like those, there are many others that you can visit to learn about their history and be impressed by the incredible structure of each one of them with unique characteristics. But these temple visits will not only give you something to do during the day, but will also allow you to get closer to Chiang Mai and its people, as well as to connect with your spiritual side.2. Climb the stairs to the paradise of Doi Suthep
The Wat Phra That Doi Suthep temple is one of the main attractions, as it combines beauty with a pleasant atmosphere and breathtaking views. It's located on Doi Suthep Mountain and to get there you'll have to climb 309 steps. It sounds a bit strenuous, but it will be totally worth it when you make it to the top. However, if you can't make it, there is still an option to get up to the temple in a funicular. The great thing is that, on this same mountain where the temple is, there are other places you can visit, such as the Bhubing Palace, also known as the Winter Palace for being the place where the royal family spends the winter, or you can also come across the wonderful Huay Kaew waterfall.3. Fall in love with the great taste of Thai food
Thailand, in general, is well known for its delicious cuisine, but if you had to choose just one place to check it out, Chiang Mai it is. Not for nothing it is known as "the capital of Thai food". Throughout the city, you can find a long list of restaurants for all budgets and with varied menus to enjoy the best food, while having a nice view. If you decide to try Thai food, you can't miss dishes like Khao soi, Pad Thai or Kaeb Moo, which are the most popular and will surely make you feel an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Another thing you should not miss is the street food, such as Sai Oua because it is one of the most famous and common in this city. As for drinks, Thai tea and coffee is a must-try.4. Experience the nightlife of Chiang Mai
A must stop while in Chiang Mai as one of the most visited places by travellers is the Night Bazaar, located on Chang Khlan Street. This place starts to come to life from 6 pm, when the streets start to light up with lights, filling with locals and tourists, and with lots of shops of all kinds: clothes, jewellery, handicrafts and many other things you can buy as souvenirs of this incredible place.5. Brighten up your trip with Loi Krathong
If your trip is in November, it means that you will be lucky enough to witness one of Thailand's most important celebrations, namely Loi Krathong, which also coincides with a special Chiang Mai celebration, namely Yi Peng. This festival takes place on the full moon of the twelfth lunar month according to the Buddhist calendar, which coincides with the month of November and for these dates the locals light up the sky with lanterns and fill their rivers with candles in little boats with flowers, as a symbol of purification and renewal of the spirit. For them, this celebration will help them let go of the bad while giving thanks for all the good. While all this is going on, there are other activities that turn the city into a big party with music, floats and dances. A spectacle that is definitely worth experiencing at least once in a lifetime.6. A look at the Elephant Nature Park
As if the long list of natural activities that Chiang Mai has to offer were not enough, this city also has an elephant park, where you can be in direct contact with these beautiful animals, which are also very important to the Thai people. The most incredible thing is that it is a sanctuary where all elephants that were once mistreated are cared for and given a second chance. When you visit, you can choose from the different visit options they have available, some of which include being in contact with the elephants, learning their stories, watching them play and interact with their natural environment and even seeing other animals that have been rescued by the sanctuary, such as buffaloes, dogs, cats, horses, goats and birds. Besides, apart from visiting them and spending the whole day surrounded by this beautiful nature, you could also become a volunteer and help save more elephants.7. Have Fun at the Grand Canyon
If you are looking for some fun and entertainment on your trip, so you can bring out the kid in you, the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon is the one for you. It's basically a natural water park, which was filled with monsoon rain after being empty for many years and was adjusted by people to become a place full of fun and laughter. Here you will find great attractions that you can enjoy all day long without any limits and that will make you feel like a kid again (and if you are on a family trip, it will become the best destination to take your children) because it has inflatables to jump, while you go on a course with many obstacles, slides, zip lines and wakeboarding. This is also the perfect spot to cool off in the blue waters on a sunny day.
