Holidays in Chiang Mai

This city is brimming with things to see and do, and you'll uncover many of them near Chiang Mai. It's no easy task to pick the leading attractions, but the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep and the Chiang Mai National Museum are two you won't want to miss. You should also be sure to stop by the Chiang Mai City Arts & Cultural Center and the Chiang Mai Zoo. For a better perspective of this vibrant city as a whole, spend time in the close-by neighbourhoods of Thapae and Chang Moi.

If you're on the lookout for some great sights in and around the city centre, you're not lacking in choice. Among the picks of the bunch is the Wat Chiang Man.

A few fantastic cultural places are within easy reach. Start off at the Elephant Parade House, the Old Chiang Mai Cultural Center, the Center for the Promotion of Arts and Culture and the Suvannabumi Art Gallery.

From hands-on activities to curiosity‐inducing objects and artefacts, museums have something to keep all ages interested. If you get stuck with some miserable weather, why not head on over to the Museum of World Insects and Natural Wonders, the Sbun-Nga Textile Museum, the Siam Insect-Zoo & Museum and the Lanna Architecture Center?

The greens of the Chiengmai Gymkhana Club, the Star Dome Golf Club and the Chiang Mai Lanna Golf Course are calling. Perfect your swing, challenge the locals to a round or two and attempt to drop some strokes off your game.

No matter how well you think you know them, the marvellous critters at Maetaman Elephant Camp, Elephant Nature Park and Mae Ping Elephant Village can still surprise you.

If you're blessed with amazing weather, fill your body with fresh air and revel in nature at the Royal Park Rajapruek, Bua Thong Waterfalls, Doi Suthep-Pui National Park and Mae Ping River.

Stock up on supplies or search for some unique mementos. Grab everything you need at Chiang Mai Night Bazaar, Warorot Market, Kad Suan Kaew Shopping Centre and Ton Payom Market.

The surrounding historic places will give you an illuminating glimpse into the area's fascinating past. Iron Bridge, Wiang Kum Kam, the Tha Phae Gate and the Tribal Museum are certainly not to be missed.

Sacred places such as the Wat Chedi Luang, the Wat Phra Singh, the Wat Suan Dok and the Wat Umong can provide you with a deeper understanding of the region. Immerse yourself in the peaceful atmosphere and take a moment to contemplate.

It's time to polish your Mexican wave skills and work on your singing voice. Come and cheer on either of the local teams, the TTM Customs F.C. and Chiangmai F.C,, at 700th Anniversary Stadium.
