Special Activities: Chiang Mai, Thailand  


Special Activities

Cultural & Social Activities

There are activities for all interests - by foot, bike, boat, car, or elephant. Start with people-watching to gain insights into local interactions and dynamics. Visit the city temples and attractions by foot or riverboat tours. Rejuvinate and relax in one of the many Spas. Check-out folk dancing, live theatre dramas and contemporary music and dance performances at the Kad Theatre. Visit local creft villiages. Take an elephant safari. Visit Wat Prathart Haripoonshai Temple with beautifully gilded Jedee (pagoda) which contains Buddha's relics, about 1500 years old. There are zos, Meo tribal villiages, an untold number of handicraft cottage industries, river rafting, and museums.

Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand located in the foothills (altitude 1100 meters or 3500 feet). Days are hot and evening cool. It is an ideal base from which to explore 700 hundred years of history in town and a wealth of unique nearby villiages. And donít forget the food!
