Chiang Mai is an ideal place to spend a few days of activities and excursions. As one of the most important cities in Thailand, Chiang Mai offers a lot of super interesting activities and guided tours. If your idea is to go to Chiang Mai and looking for different activities, fleeing from the typical excursions or tours, here are the best alternative tours I recommend.
- Small-Group Chiang Mai Evening Street Food Tour
- Care Pride Elephants: Full Day Tour
- Historic Old Chiang Mai Bike Tour
- Full-Day Guided Tuk Tuk Chiang Mai Adventure
- Whitewater Rafting and ATV Quad Bike Adventure
Some of my friends have also asked me if Chiang Mai has any free walking tours. As of today, Chiang Mai doesn’t have any free walking tours around the city. The only paid walking tour I could find in Chiang Mai is the Local Fresh Market Tour by Thai Akha. If you’re on a budget, you can do a self-guided walking tour around Old Town or Nimman.
Khantoke Dinner and Traditional Dance Show
One of the many things Chiang Mai night has to offer is a traditional dance show and a typical Thai dinner. This activity is perfect to do at the end of the day’s tour of the city. During the show you will contemplate different varieties of typical dances which allows you to know better how is the culture of the country and the north of Thailand.
Cooking Courses in Chiang Mai
If you are a lover of gastronomy and you defend yourself with the dishes we recommend you to do a cooking course. In these cooking courses you will learn the secrets of Thai cuisine. The best thing about this activity is that it usually lasts only half a day, which makes it a perfect activity to combine with other activities during the day.
