Chiang Mai Thailand

Things to do and best places to visit in on a romantic getaway in Chiang Mai Thailand


Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand is a fantastic place to visit, not just for the 300+ temples that are spread over this most charismatic city, but also for the complete feeling of peace & serenity that envelopes you within hours of arriving here.

It is the perfect place to enjoy a Thailand honeymoon or a romantic few days with a loved one. You could just go for the more traditional tourist destinations of Wat Doi Suthep (one of the holiest Buddhist temples in Thailand), the world famous Chiang Mai Night Bazaar (1,000’s of small stalls selling everything from fake Rolex & designer clothes through to beautiful handicrafts & souvenirs). Or how about a visit to Doi Inthanon National Park, there are fabulous walks & it’s also the highest point in the whole of Thailand!

There are many different places to visit around Chiang Mai that offer the tourist the “traditional treats”, but what if you were looking for something a little less “packaged”, and a little more “one on one” ?

How about a romantic massage at one of the cities many walk-in Day Spas? Taking in the sights of the city in a Tuk-Tuk ?


Maybe a candle-lit dinner by the river at one of the restaurants that follow its course, or enjoy a romantic dinner on a scorpion-tailed boat as it winds its way slowly through the heart of the city.

For the more adventurous you could always hire a motorbike and head out of the city & travel up into the mountains for some seriously stunning scenery? lots of beautifully maintained National Parks with lovely walks & breath-taking waterfalls .


You could take a few days out & help look after elephants at the excellent Elephant Nature Park . The park rescues badly treated or sick elephants, and re-introduces them back into their natural environment, a great place to visit.

As another alternative, you could always go Trekking & include elephant riding & white-water rafting along with an amble through the jungles of Northern Thailand, staying with Hill Tribes People, there is nothing quite like sleeping under a mosquito net on a mat to bring people closer together!

Whatever you are looking for whether it be from the standard sightseeing tours or the more romantic encounters Chiang Mai Thailand can offer it all, along with memories that will last forever.
