Popular Attractions in Chiang Mai

Wat Chedi Luang
4.6/5
1,298 Reviews
Temple
The Wat Chedi Luang, also known as Chedi Dragon Temple, is a particularly famous temple in the city of Chiang Mai. It is located in the heart of the ancient city of Chiang Mai. This square shaped Lanna style sacred stupa was built in 1411 and is nearly 80 meters high. A major earthquake once happened in Chiang Mai, and the spire of the stupa collapsed overnight. After the rebuilding of the stupa, the apex could not be completed because no one knew its original appearance. The stupa has four sides, only one side has steps, and the other three sides have been restored into slopes. The stupa is engraved with exquisite guardian spirit snakes on all sides, and there are six elephant sculptures on the tower. The building is magnificent. But the atmosphere is very natural and leisurely.
Tha Phae Gate
4.4/5
2,112 Reviews
Historical Site
Part of the eastern wall, Tha Phae Gate is a highly intact city gate. Originally, the ancient city of Chiang Mai was surrounded by a wall about 2 meters high enclosed in red brick walls. Later, most of the buildings disappeared over the years. The surviving Tha Phae Gate became a very well-known attraction in Chiang Mai and a landmark. The red wall and blue sky are beautiful in the morning or at dusk when few people are around. Photographers from all over the world have come here to capture the beautiful scene of the city gate from different angles. On Sunday, the market stalls start here. When the market is closed, tourists and locals feed the pigeons in the square in front of the Tha Phae Gate. The environment is very comforting.

The wildest cherry blossom forest in the northern hemisphere, the first cherry blossom in the northern hemisphere, and the beautiful cherry blossoms in Japan, this year, we have another way to go to northern Thailand to see cherry blossoms. Chiang Mai is more interesting because of the cherry blossoms on the farm. It is a fun-filled flower viewing experience. Because the cherry blossoms of the other farms are mainly located at the Royal Agricultural Research Center of Kunwang, public transportation is unreachable, so you can only choose to drive, charter or carpool. From Chiang Mai to cherry blossom viewing point, although it is only 110 kilometers away, it takes more than 2 hours, because the Nongshan National Park is basically a winding mountain road. In some places, the slope is very large and the speed is slow. The research center covers a large area, and there is a small fresh central garden near the entrance, which is the favorite style of Thai people. The cherry trees here are old and have not been carefully constructed. They all grow naturally and are full of wild taste. The color of the northern cherry blossoms is between Yoshino Sakura and Han Sakura. The romantic pink contrasts with the clear blue sky of Chiang Mai at the end of January. As a signature attraction in Chiang Mai, many locals like to take romantic wedding photos here. At present, this attraction is not so popular, and tourists are not too many. Beside a cherry blossom tunnel in Houshan, it is a coffee plantation and breeding base in the research center. The sakura of cherry blossoms, with the tropical coffee trees and palm trees, is a strange landscape! TIPS: Due to the admission of the Mannshan National Park, the number of passengers is 300, and the number of vehicles is 100. It is recommended to have time to stay in the mountains for one night, and to get up early and watch the sunrise and morning fog. The Agricultural Research Center no longer accepts tickets and the parking fee is 20 baht.
