Things to Do in Chiang Mai 

In Chiang Mai, you’ll encounter some of Thailand’s most extravagant temples and religious sites. Unlike anywhere in the world, these Thai temples (or ‘wats’) date back to the thirteenth century and are worth a visit. Why not explore Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep with a camera in hand, capturing images of these man-made wonders?

To sample the cultural richness of the region, check out one of the many museums. Take your pick between the City Arts and Cultural Centre, the National Museum, or the Tribal Museum (for a fascinating look at the tribal roots of the area, preserving the precious history of the mountain tribes).

Want a look at the local nature parks? Try the Doi Inthanon National Park or the Elephant Nature Park. 

Weather in Chiang Mai

With a tropical wet and dry climate, this region benefits from the tempering low latitude and its moderate elevation. You’ll notice the drop in temperature at night during the dry season, compared to the hot and humid highs of the daytime.
