An amazing experience, Chiang Mai is unique for all kinds of reasons, though the top ones can be listed as below. And of course, while there, the best hotel that you can possibly opt for is the luxurious Dhara Devi resort, that’s known for its architectural and cultural influences of the historic Lanna kingdom.
1) A religious experience
With over 300 Buddhist temples (wats), there are quite a few that you can see if you actually put your mind to it. But if you don’t want to overdo it, then just go for the most popular ones, those being the Doi Sutep and Wat Chedi Luang.
2) Explore the Sunday Night Market
The Sunday night market is held only once per week. So, if you’re passing through Chiang Mai, try to make it on a Sunday for some delicious food, clothing, jewelry, art, sunglasses, and lots more.
3) Play with elephants
A rare experience, the Elephant Nature Park rescues elephants from tourism and logging and gives them a new lease on life. It’s also a sanctuary for endangered species and elephants here are free to roam to their heart’s content.
4) Experience the amazing food
For both foodies and non-foodies alike, the street food in Chiang Mai is delicious and plentiful. It’s fresh and super cheap. But if street food isn’t your thing, then try out the local restaurants for a taste of some amazing local cuisine.
