Top 5 Things to Do in Chiang Mai With Kids – Chiang Mai Family Activities

The list of best things to do in Chiang Mai with the littles goes on and on- without a doubt, but in our best attempt to break it down for you, here are our best recommendations for the top 5 things to do in Chiang Mai with kids who are likely templed-out!


Chiang Mai Night Safari

This is quite the unusual way of seeing wide animals for anyone but is guaranteed to keep your littles enthralled for as long as it lasts. The park hopes to recreate the experience of being out in the wilderness after dark fall. However, in any case, the night safari might not be the best fit for you, know that daytime options are available too! There are three zones to be toured- Savanna safari, predator prowl and Jaguar trail. You will likely come across lions, giraffes, zebras, elephants, pumas, tigers, flamingos and a range of other exotic animals to be exact. Do not miss out on the nightly laser light shows too- it's the best way to finish off your tour! Should you work up an appetite on the excursion, there is many a riverside restaurant in Chiang Mai that keep the clan satiated with their delicious wizardry - for instance, Service 1921.


Elephant Jungle Sanctuary Chiang Mai

Being in love with the majestic creatures that are elephants is a universal thing! There are no limits of age gender or even origin- as everyone loves these adorable 'little' creatures all the same. If you are in Chiang Mai with your tribe, visiting the elephant sanctuary might hence be a perfect idea. It is essentially a retirement home for elephants that have been working in the logging and tourism industries for the better part of their lives. The sanctuary focuses on the welfare of these creatures and provides them with the perfect home without the hassle of being forced to give rides and perform circus tricks! What is better than best about this facility is that it lets you interact with these creatures in an effortless manner. If your kids are not going to be fascinated by that alone, we don't know what else will!


Chiang Mai X Centre

This sporting centre in Mai Rim has provides the facilities for a wide range of activities involving bungy jumping, ATVs, go-karting, paintballing, motocross, zorbing and a dozen more. Although clearly some of these activities might be a little too extreme for kids, there is also a selection of activities specially set aside for kiddies such as mini ATVs, a paintball target range, mini golf and even a scaled-down bungy jump!



If what you intend to do is let your kids have fun (but also exhaust them of their burst of energy so they go to sleep easy), we would highly recommend a cycling tour. The country-side out of the city is so fulll of interesting, beautiful cycling routes that it provides the perfect opportunity for your entire family to enjoy and bond with nature altogether as one.


Museum of Insects and Natural Wonders

You know that eerie obsession that many kids have with bugs and all things that are winged and can fly? Well, if your kids have got it (and you have it too for that matter-let's be honest- no one is judging!) this is where you need to be- The Museum of Insects and Natural Wonders. Its collection includes thousands of insects, seashells, fossils, stones and other interesting specimens from the natural world.
