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

    Vidyanshu's 7 days trip to Chiang Mai

    It was a memorable 7 days trip starting from Krabi -> Phuket -> Bangkok. Shafiq from A G Tours and travels was always available over phone whenever needed. Also, he was the one who customized the whole trip for us based on our need. Everything was going good except the second last day at Bangkok. We landed at airport, got picked by cab driver routinely and we reached to hotel mentioned in the itinerary. Surprisingly, the room at hotel was not booked for us . I called Shafiq and he fixed this mistake in about an hour. Over all, I would recommend TT and A G Tours and travel.

    Nitish's 6 days trip to Chiang Mai

    Sumukh travel did a great job in planning the trip. Dipika was very prompt in answering/resolving the queries. Local agent and Drivers were also good. Although, drivers didn't knew English and but were very friendly. Casa Del M hotel was clean and staffs were friendly. Only thing I didn't like was Icheck inn hotel in Krabi, Reception lady was rude, as there was no staff and lift I had to carry the luggage to 3rd floor in the narrow stairs.

    Emailshishir's 6 days trip to Chiang Mai

    The overall thailand experience was okay, but few things made our travel a bit uncomfortable like, after travelling for total 2 hours by road and 5 hours by air - total 8 hours, we reached RAMADA Bangkok early morning and we requested for early check in but the hotel charged us hefty amount for early check and they were not ready to adjust few hours even after our request. We tried to reach the travel triangle staff but they said it depends on Hotel, at last we had to pay from our pocket. Another bitter experience was, our return flight was rescheduled to next day, we wanted to extend our stay but again traveltriangle replied by saying that you will have to book it from your pocket, i would like to say that after spending so much of money already, why do we again need to pay for small small things which Traveltriangle can easily manage. Also the complimentary meals given to us were so average in terms of food taste, variety, and ambience. There were many better options that they could have given to us.

    Sagar Bhatia

    New delhi

    Sagar's 7 days trip to Chiang Mai

    Poorly managed by the travel agent. Things that were promised were not given. Poor communication through out. Was unable to contact them during the trip which made everything very frustrating. Rates were revised at the last moment citing very poor reasons. Overall highly disappointed with arrangements. Support from travel triangle was also not upto the mark. Travel consultant hardly replied back on chats and calls.

    Tanusree Mukherjee

    Kolkata

    Tanusree's 6 days trip to Chiang Mai

    I would highly recommend Travel Triangle and specially Kingdom Of Holidays for their extensive support and guidance whenever required. First of all we were quite doubtful about the trip because of Corona outbreak but the agency assured us the country is safe and they will be providing all support to make our trip secure and memorable. They kept every single word they promised. I would like to highly appreciate Mr. Rishi and his team for being always supportive and professional in providing the prompt services with great response starting from Visa on arrival till last day of the trip. We got such promising treatment that we didn't even feel that we are in a different country.

    Hotels in Krabi were good but the hotel in phuket were below average... Disappointed. Phi Phi island visit and 4 islands visit in Krabi were amazing.

    Services were perfect, however the trip was more costly to us, I would recommend only to those for whom money is not a priority and want seamless services... The village coconut island...

    FAQ's of Chiang Mai

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
