Chiang Mai

Discover the diverse history and culture of northern Thailand during a holiday in Chiang Mai, the largest and most significant city in the region.
Wat Phra That Doi Suthep and Wat Chedi Luang Worawihan will appeal to history buffs. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Nature & Wildlife Tours and Maerim Elephant Sanctuary. Step out of Chiang Mai to go to Doi Inthanon National Park and see Doi Inthanon, which is approximately 1h 35 min away. And it doesn't end there: relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, browse the different shops at CentralPlaza Chiangmai Airport, tour the pleasant surroundings at Chiang Mai Zoo, and look for gifts at Mengrai Kilns.

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airport is Chiang Mai International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 42°C, and evening lows to 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
