12 Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Chiang Mai - Explore the most attractive places in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the second most popular city in Thailand and is only second to Bangkok. Here is a list of the top-rated attractions in Chiang Mai that you must make a stop at.


Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

The most popular Wat in Chiang Mai due to the stunning architecture, buddha statue and detailed craftsmanship that makes the temple stand out from the rest. Anantara Chiang Mai Resort and several other resorts are located in the vicinity of the Wat allowing a stunning view of the wat from the resorts.


Doi Pui

Doi Pui is a beautiful landscape but has been rather commercialised due to an increase in the frequency in tourist visits. You can find details and look at how the homes of the traditional hill tribes built homes.


Doi Inthanon

Doi Inthanon is the highest place in the country and it is a stunning area from where you can see the surrounding which is absolutely breathtaking. You can take a vehicle to the peak or hike through the waterfalls and the hill tribe village.


Wat Chedi Luang

Ruins of a former temple and a functioning temple have a distinctive difference and it is a must to visit the Wat Chedi Luang to get first-hand experience on this. The structure has been damaged due to an earthquake and had not been restored afterwards.


Wat Prasingh

The largest temple in the city which rises above the old city at the end of Rachadamnoen Road. if you decide to visit only one Wat make sure it is the Wat Prasingh as it is one of the oldest in the city.


Chiang Mai Gate Market

This is one of the most popular locations to come to in order to treat yourself to some of the best street food you can find in Chiang Mai including Sate, Pisang Goreng and Babi Guling. You can also opt to get takeaway if you feel like you cannot get enough of these flavours.

Shop your night away at the Night Bazaar where you get to find a range of unique products such as jewellery, trinkets, accessories, and bags for a small price. Most of the products are sourced and made in Chiang Mai making them unique and special.


Elephant Nature Park

This Elephant Park is one of the few places where the elephants are not abused or overworked. You can see them living a peaceful life in their natural habitat eating, bathing, playing and loving life.


Bua Thong Sticky Waterfalls

One of the most unconventional tourist attractions in Chiang Mai as you get to walk on the falls due to the stickiness of the limestone. Away from the city, the location is a great place for a weekday getaway.
