Activities In Chiang Mai

Thailand bound and still wondering about the best things to do in Chiang Mai? You will be delighted to know that Chiang Mai makes up for the best base for a travel exploration. Along with the temples and monasteries, you can easily find authentic Thai restaurants, cozy cafes, exuberant nightlife, and adventure activities calling out for you. Here are the top things to do in Chiang Mai that you must not simply scroll through but actually do them -

Head out to Doi Suthep - certainly the most popular destination in Chiang Mai, every Chiang Mai tour is incomplete with a visit here. Doi Suthep to Chiang Mai is just like Big Ben to London. Located 12km away from the city of Chiang Mai, the place overlooks the whole city from the mountain top. Check out the 13th century temple and the huge elephant shrine seated here. Elephant Nature Park visit - There is only one sanctuary in the whole of Chiang Mai which is committed to the rehabilitation of elephants as it is seen that Thailand has an infamous history of animal abuse. This park acts as a safeguard centre for those elephants which have been abused by the tourism industry in the past. During your visit here, you can either just watch the elephants strolling in their natural habitat or help volunteer the sanctuary administration. Most importantly, do not expect to experience an elephant ride here. Take delight in attractive cafe scenes - Chiang Mai is one of those few places in Thailand which offers one-of-a-kind coffee hopping experience. You can visit the quirky cafes for your morning breakfast or just drop in late evening for a decaf after your day tour. Some of the best cafes around Chiang Mai are Bird’s Nest Cafe and Good Morning Chiang Mai. Although it does not sound that exciting, yet it is one of the coolest things you will love to do in Chiang Mai. Go bonkers at the Nimmanhaemin Road - the hub of posh bars and fancy restaurants, Nimmanhaemin Road is definitely the most vibrant place in Chiang Mai. Perfect spot for a casual hangout or weekend cocktails, you will enjoy a lively experience here. There are a few upscale bars and a shopping mall at the main road where you can enjoy movies, drinks and fine food. Eat Khao Soi - Khao Sai is a curry flavoured soup infused with coconut milk and garnished with yellow egg noodles and chicken. Deep-fried egg noodles is also served on top of it. The real flavour of the soup is beyond the regular Thai soup served in India. Once you are in Chiang Mai, definitely try this dish out. Add some pickles and chopped garnishings for a hot flavour. Do not forget to relish this delicious dish when trying out the local dishes of Thailand. Boat ride to the Mae Ping River - take a joyful and exciting boat trip along the Mae Ping river. If you have nothing much to do during the afternoon hours, head out to the Mae Ping river and hop on a boat. Watch some of the most mesmerising scenes as you pass by villages that have teak houses. Relax during the entire ride or take an opportunity to stop by the farms and watch how the jasmine rice is produced. Trek through the hills enveloped by the mountains - Chiang Mai is undoubtedly a beautiful city in Thailand. With an infinite number of options available for tourists, trekking is definitely one of the best things to do in Chiang mai. When you are tired of visiting the temples, head out on a trek to any of the valleys here. On your way, you will find captivating vistas of waterfalls and valleys on either side. Also, you will get a chance to mingle with the local hill tribes here. Take part in the Loi Krathong festival - the festival of Loi Krathong is celebrated with much excitement in Chiang Mai. It is an annual fair that takes place during the twelfth lunar month. Krathongs, baskets shaped like lotus, are released in the air during this festival. It is a sight to watch the thousands of lanterns lighting up the night sky. If you are here during the festival, make sure to release your own krathong in the sky

      I am not a person who is into sharing reviews and comments but Nitin and his amazing service forced me to write.....A big thanks to Nitin our trip planner. We booked Thailand package with him and was not very sure about how everything would be managed but to our surprise everything from pick up to sightseeing, meals, honeymoon supliments and drop was very well managed. We were not required to buy local SIM as Nitin and his staff was available 24*7 on WhatsApp. We even forgot our photographs in one of the car aligned but Katy (driver) returned our pics at the hotel lobby herself....much appreciated. All the drivers and other person involved helped and guided us wen required and were friendly. I never imagined that our international trip would be so hassel free. I also need to thank Travel Triangle for the same. All I can say is I found my personal trip planner. Do go for Travel Advisor 4 u... Coral island and Chao pharaya dinner cruise

      Thanks to travel triangle full team and special thanks to Gurpreet and Pooja for the memorable trip to Bangkok and Pattaya. It was my first foreign trip and believe me it was amazing and one of the best trip. Everything was well organized as per our preferences. Really appreciate the whatsapp group which was active for 24×7. Hats off to the services provided it made our stay very smooth. Hotels are good..but pattaya's hotel was little far from the market where we ended up in spending a lot in transportation as dinner was not available in hotel or nearby. Specially on first day, upon arrival on Pattaya hotel at night after being so tired we had to go market to have some food though we are damn tired. Day 2 in coral island is highlight of our journey. Bangkok hotel's location was good but little small compared to Pattaya's hotel. Trip was worth of penny and yes we returned home with wonderful memories. Looking forward for more trips with your team and will also recommend travel triangle to my family and friends as well. Thank you!!☺️

    FAQ's of Chiang Mai

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Before heading to Chiang Mai, pack the essential and emergency kit. If visiting during monsoon, carry umbrellas; if visiting during summers, pack sunblock lotions and cotton garments. Do not forget to pack your first aid kit.

    Local transport system is very efficient in Chiang Mai. The LRT and MRT are secure and cheaper modes of transportation.

    Chiang Mai is definitely one of the safest travel destinations in Asia. Nevertheless, it is suggested to look after one’s own safety during travels and tours.

    A well-planned tour of Thailand may include Chiang Mai tour. However, if one wishes to cover only Chiang Mai then it is advisable to book a separate tour for the same.

    Due to its strategic location in the Northern part of Thailand, Chiang Mai may be visited any time of the year. Factually, the Winter months are most favored by tourists.
