GetVanGo Trip Ideas - Chiang Mai and North Thailand
Here are some ideas for short (one or two day) trips from Chiang Mai. They're only starting points, though, something to get the imagination going. So feel free to mix, match, and change as much as you want. Have fun - it's your adventure!
100 kilometres south of Chiang Mai stands Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain. This easy day trip goes directly to the royal stupas near the summit in order to get morning light on the magnificent view west before continuing to the summit (2565 metres). On the return, visit two of the waterfalls for which the mountain is famous and one of the prettiest northern Thai temples in the River Ping Valley.
