How to Organize an Exciting Trip to Chiang Mai



Thailand is a fascinating country and you will find that there are some great places to be discovered in this part of the globe. Chiang Mai is one of the best tourist destinations in Thailand, and you can have a great time if you want to visit some temples and chedis dating from older times.

Chiang Mai is well known worldwide, because of its amazing architecture, palatable dishes, great scenery with mountains and bustling waterfalls. People that come here are always aware of the fact that a trip to this destination can be tons of fun. Never spend only one day in Chiang Mai; you won’t have enough time to explore everything and that could turn into a great disappointment.

The city offers plenty of great ways to spend your time. Children especially love Mae Sa where they can ride on elephants or watch a veritable football match between the huge animals organized at the Elephant Camp. For adult entertainment, an orchid nursery may be just the thing that will impress you most during your trip to Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai is a place rich in old temples, so one of the main attractions is a tour that includes the most beautiful of them all. However, if you want to unwind, there are plenty of spas and well reputed massage parlors where you can forget all your troubles while enjoying a full treatment.

To make the best of your trip to Chiang Mai you need to visit Wat Phratat Doi Suthep, which is the most impressive temple complex in the area. It is true that you will have to climb three hundred stairs to see the golden spire located on top. From up there you do however get to look out over the city. In the neighboring area you will also find a zoo, where thousands of animal species are housed.

Shopping can be great in Chiang Mai. If you are looking to purchase some souvenirs, there is no better place to do so than the Night Bazaar. Choose one of the many gifts on full display here.

Situated in the southern part of the city, Doi Inthanon National Park is a great place for a walk. While it houses the highest mountain in the entire country the destination is quite relaxing and ideal for spending a quiet afternoon.

Make sure that you have everything prepared before embarking on your trip to Chiang Mai. You will need to have your flight tickets booked ahead of time, as well as your accommodations so you do not encounter any nasty surprises later on. Also, if you know that you are traveling on a budget avoid splurging too much as you do not want your trip to be cut short because of insufficient financial funds.
