Discover the diverse history and culture of northern Thailand during a holiday in Chiang Mai, the largest and most significant city in the region.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chiang Mai: Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (in Doi Suthep), Doi Inthanon (in Doi Inthanon National Park) and Thai Elephant Home (in Mae Taeng). There's much more to do: delve into the distant past at Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan, stroll through Maeklang Elephant Conservation Community, get interesting insight from Tours, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Chiang Mai road trip planning website .

Phitsanulok is rarely seen as a vacation highlight, but rather a stop on the way to popular attractions in the north.
Get out of town with these interesting Phitsanulok side-trips: Nakhon Thai (Thung Salaeng Luang National Park, Kaeng Chet Khwae National Park, & more), Wang Thong (Wat Ratchakhiri Hiranyaram, Khek River, & more) and Wat Thepnimitr (in Bang Rakam). Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Sgt. Maj. Thawee Folk Museum, admire all the interesting features of Phitsanulok-Lom Sak Route (Highway No. 12), delve into the distant past at Phra Si Ratana Temple (Wat Yai), and don't miss a visit to Chula Mani Temple.
