Cascading waterfalls, golden temples and bustling markets make Chiang Mai the most popular destination in Northern Thailand. No matter your vacation dream, you won’t leave disappointed. If you’re looking for insight into Thailand’s cultural heritage, climb to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, a sacred mountaintop site where gold-plated towers overlook the vista below. If you’re hunting for the perfect memento, hit Chiang Mai’s Night Bazaar, the largest in the country, for street foods and handicrafts. Adventurers will find a lot to love in the Chiang Mai province’s lush jungles, and the area is known for its waterfalls.
Animal lover? Chiang Mai has long been famous for its elephants, but be aware – elephant riding can be harmful to the animal. In recent years, rescues and conservation efforts have focused instead on allowing visitors to interact with these gentle giants in their natural habitats.
