Things to Do in Chiang Mai

May 2nd, 2013 2:53 am

Located in Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is a city that is surrounded by mountains making it a place where there are so many diverse things to do.

Apart from the elephant rides Chiang Mai is also well known for the Hill Tribes at Doi Angkhrang. The Hmong, Palong, Lisu and Lahu tribes have lived here for centuries and you can see how they live and work. A great cultural experience. One of the best known people of Northern Thailand are the Kayans (also known as Padaung). These are the tribes that have the rings around their neck making it elongated. These tribes fled Myanmar (Burma) because of a brutal military regime and have lived in this area for decades.

If an organised tour is more your liking then getting picked up from your Chiang Mai hotel and having a tour with organised travel and lunches, then have a look at some of the tours listed below.

The elephant rides are a popular tour to go on. You ride elephants through national parks, so you get to see the surroundings at a slow relaxing pace. It is also a thrill when the elephants find a river or waterhole and you get to experience the elephants in their water habitat.

One of the most popular ways to see Chiang Mai and its surroundings is to hire a motorbike. Riding a motor bike around the area at your own pace allows you to stop and see more things and because there is no time limit then you decide how long you want to stay in the one place.

Chiang Mai isn’t all about tours. You can travel around the city to do shopping or go on a culinary journey and taste the wonders of the Northern Thailand cuisines. The Artisans in this area are world famous for their wood working skill. Their craft of furniture making and wood carvings are their specialty Also check out the silver making skills of the locals. Silver Smithing has been around for centuries in this area. Known as “Silver Village” Phae Road has an abundance of hand made quality silver in the form of boxes, trays, bowls and jewelery.
