Chiang Mai in a snapshot
Head to one of the many elephant camps in Chiang Mai and watch an elephant show before heading out for an elephant ride. Trek through a tropical forest and visit a Karen Long Neck village for a slice of ethnic flavour. Other outdoor adventures such as white water rafting, abseiling, bird watching and biking awaits the adventure seeker at heart.
The cultural capital of Chiang Mai has many ancient temples with origins dating back to the Lanna Kingdom period. Visit the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, located atop the Doi Suthep mountain or the Wat Phra Singh which features authentic Lanna-style architecture.
