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.
Start off your visit on the 10th (Sat): get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Phra Singh, stop by Mengrai Kilns, then admire the striking features of Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan, and finally relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

Plan my Chiang Mai trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Manchester, UK to Chiang Mai is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 7 hours traveling from Manchester to Chiang Mai. Expect warmer temperatures when traveling from Manchester in August; daily highs in Chiang Mai reach 38°C and lows reach 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to travel to Ko Pha Ngan.
