Chiang Mai has a lot in common with Bangkok; concrete buildings, traffic and a bustling night life, but there’s also more to Chiang Mai. You’ll notice a more laid-back, reverential atmosphere, strongly influenced by the multitude of sacred temples and shrines. If you have time, it’s worth taking a walk in the balmy evening to the night market where you’ll find plenty of souvenirs. This market is of course largely geared towards tourists, so if you’d like a more authentic experience, we would recommend heading over to Warorot market where you’ll find an assortment of fruits, vegetables, dried fish and even pig heads! In the evening you can relax in your comfortable, central hotel opposite Chiang Mai gate.
