Activities and Attractions
Holiday Inn Chiang Mai is only minutes away from the city’s famous temples and the renowned night bazaar. The hotel is also perfectly placed to venture on short trips to hill-tribe villages or nearby elephant camps.
The Old City, bounded by moats and stone walls, has narrow, serpentine lanes that draw the visitor into an atmospheric world populated by tradesmen, small shop houses and a dizzying number of Lanna-style temples. There’s the 13th-century Wat Chiang Man which contains two important ancient Buddhas, and the 15th-century Wat Chedi Luang, the original home of the Emerald Buddha now displayed in Bangkok’s Grand Palace.
Chiang Mai’s city centre comes alive every evening with the night bazaar. Covering several blocks, the massive market has a good selection of stalls selling woodcarvings, inexpensive silk and cotton clothing, elaborate hill tribe-inspired home accessories and the usual tourist souvenirs.
Wat Phra That Doi Suthep
The golden Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is perhaps Chiang Mai’s most famous and iconic temple. Perched on top of Doi Suthep Hill, the temple was built in 1383 to enshrine Buddha’s relics. You can drive uphill to the higher platform or take a cable car, but many devout Buddhists choose to complete their pilgrimage by walking up the 290 steps to the hilltop.
Chiang Mai’s forested hills and lush valleys are home to expansive camps that care for domesticated elephants. While some operations suspiciously care for these gentle creatures for purposes of tourism, a few are actually havens for elephants that were rescued from the streets of Bangkok or from logging camps in bordering countries. These elephant sanctuaries allow you to feed, interact with and even bathe these mild-mannered giants. Do extensive research and find out how the elephants are really treated when choosing which camp to visit.
The jungles of Chiang Mai offer some of Thailand’s most thrilling outdoor adventures. A host of companies offer visitors the chance to glide through the air while harnessed to a cable strung in between trees. Sail over treetops, walk hanging rope bridges, glimpse rare wildlife and experience the adventure of a lifetime.
Chiang Mai’s alternative art scene has experienced resurgence over the years, particularly along trendy Nimmanhaemin Road where artsy cafes and galleries have sprouted. Chiang Mai University Art Centre, in particular, regularly hosts art installations and exhibitions.
