Fun places in the city and outskirts

The hot springs and geysers are always curious, and children will enjoy sharing the local tradition of boiling eggs in the pool, so the place is family friendly.
An excellent option to spend a day or a half.

Nightlife in Chiang Mai (includes a map)

Experiencing the nightlife in Chiang Mai, whether in live music venues or lively bars with a welcoming atmosphere, is a good choice for all evenings in the city.

Although there are several areas, we recommend two of them for families, more suitable. Let’s see, B and E.

Chiang Mai live music

We suggest six main areas, as shown in the following map.

» A – The Thanon Nimmanhaemin area with its fashion boutiques, bars, restaurants and clubs, such as the Warm Up or the Monkey Club.
If you want to enjoy a glass of red wine from Chile or California, come to this area.

» B – Rachadamonen Road is the central street downtown and here you will find restaurants, bars with live music and entertainment areas.

» C – In the vicinity of the old town, next to the moat, where there are many places such as the Gossip or Brasserie. Live music in popular venues.

» D – And what would be the red-light district is found on Loi Kroh Road, which starts from the eastern wall of the old city and runs along the street as far as the Night Bazaar. With bars, pool tables, spicy shows, etc.

» E – The Night Bazaar. The most popular area to combine shopping with dinner.

» F – On the banks of the river Ping there are many other trendy venues such as The Good View or The Riverside.
