Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai ©
Discover the diverse history and culture of northern Thailand during a holiday in Chiang Mai, the largest and most significant city in the region.
Get some cultural insight at Wat Suan Dok and Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Elephant Rescue Park and Orthodox Church of St. Vladimir. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Phra Singh, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and explore the ancient world of Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan.

Plan my day in Chiang Mai using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
