Chiang Mai

Located among green hills and mountains, Chiang Mai is a favourite Northern Thailand destination for travellers. The “Rose of the North” is well-known for extraordinary handicraft, delicious food and rich history. It is home to more than 300 temples in Lanna and Burmese styles, some of them are just as old as the city. It’s no surprise that expats from all over the world flock to Chiang Mai for that ideal blend of rustic appeal and modern amenities.

Top 5 Must Do's

Chiang Mai, Wat Phratat Doi Suthep

Wat Phratat Doi Suthep

No holiday in Chiang Mai would be complete without a visit to this intricately beautiful temple atop a hill. If you’re daunted by the 300 plus Naga-lined steps, there’s always the cable car to get you to the top of the hill where the view is simply amazing.



Chiang Mai, Elephant Nature Park

Elephant Nature Park

The park’s mission is to rescue distressed elephants and let them heal in a natural environment. You can spend the day feeding and bathing these gentle giants, but this is definitely not the place you go for fancy circus elephant tricks.



Chiang Mai, Doi Ithanon

Doi Inthanon

There are many things that you can see in Thailand’s highest mountain, including three remarkable waterfalls, the villages of Hmong and Karen-Padaung hill tribes, stupas dedicated to the royal couple and endless natural beauty along the way.



Chiang Mai, Wat Chedi Luang

Wat Chedi Luang

It no longer houses the famous Emerald Buddha, but the 600-year old structure is still a sight to behold. Don’t forget to spare some time and talk to the young monks--they will be more than happy to have the chance to practice their English with you.
