There are so many activities to do in Chiang Mai. Here are some excitements:
elephant riding, rafting, Mae Ping river cruising, sky riding, ice skating,
bowling, Thai massage, Thai cooking class, spa, and etc.
Most popularly originating from Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, these 1-6 day treks
take visitors through forested mountains and high meadows in what are, actually,
the lower extremities of Himalayan foothills. Major attractions are remote
hilltribe villages. Mountains surrounding Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai host seven
major, once-itinerant hill tribes of Tibeto- Burman origin the Meo, Lisu, Lahu,
Yao, Akha, Lawa and Karen. Each have distinctive dialects, costumes and customs.
This activity is available at most elephant camps around Chiang Mai. Most camps
provide elephant shows and elephant riding. You can contact either the camp
directly or travel agents for more information.
Many elephant camps also provide bamboo rafting. However, if you want more
challenging raft, Pai and Mae Chaem districts also provide a veteran raft.
Release your stress with the traditional Thai massage.
