Chiang Mai is great for children, with options to go on a nature trail, a trip to the waterfalls, market and village visits as well as meeting an Asian elephant – a quintessential part of Thai culture.
Chiang Mai is surrounded by mountains and forests and often referred to as the ‘Rose of the North’. This friendly city, is rich in cultural heritage and a Mecca for handicrafts, the old part of the city is contained in a square moat. Visit the temple of Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep and marvel at the breathtaking views across Chiang Mai from this sacred mountain temple as you learn more about the legend of the White Elephant. In the evening, take the opportunity to stroll through the colourful Chiang Mai Night Bazaar for great food and a huge array of handicrafts.
