Grandma's Home Cooking School
If you are interested in learning Thai cuisine, this is a trip worth participating in. From the traditional market to learn about the ingredients, and then to the classroom to learn about the various spices they grow, and finally, under the witty leadership of the teacher, learn the essence of cooking. Remember, don’t eat too much before you come, because you have to finish the cooking by yourself 😄

Chiang Mai Elephant Retirement Park Day Tour with Elephant Care Program & Outdoor Activities
Because of the epidemic, there were only our group of guests that day. The elephant was really super cute. The owner also led 4 elephants to play together, but because he didn’t want to get mud all over, he had to splash a water basin next to him, hoping that the epidemic would end soon. , Otherwise the elephant will be sold

Top sights in Chiang Mai

Situated on the northern rocky mountains of Thailand, there is no shortage of interesting and exciting adventures in Chiang Mai for all kinds of travelers. With its exquisite temples, colorful festivals, and beautiful natural attractions, this small yet impressive city promises a cultural experience like no other. Discover the best places to go to with this helpful guide!

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep

Magnificently perched on a mountain more than 1,000 meters in height, Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep is one of the holiest sites in Thailand. Legend has it that it was built on the grounds where a sacred white elephant lay dead after carrying a piece of bone from Buddha's shoulder up the mountain. Its most recognizable part is the golden 24-meter shrine that gleams under the sun, but there's more to see on the temple grounds. Tourists can walk up the 300 steps and see ornate jeweled serpents on the rails, or take the elevator for a quick ride to the top. Located just 15 kilometers from Chiang Mai, a visit to this Buddhist temple is a quick getaway where you can even see great sights of the city below.

Wat Chedi Luang

Located inside the walled parts of the old city are the glorious ancient ruins of Wat Chedi Luang. Dating back to the 14th century, its most prominent structure is the impressive chedi or pagoda with four staircases on each side guarded by large Nagas or mythical snakes. Although there were plans of restoring the chedi to its former grandeur, there is no clear picture of what it used to look like, making it an unfinished yet breathtaking monument. As it is an active Buddhist temple, you can encounter monks passing by or even have a chat with them at certain hours. Though there is a small entrance fee to enter the temple, it’s a sight worth seeing, especially during sunset, where its facade is surrounded by beautiful hues of the sky.

Wat Phra Singh (Gold Temple)

Exploring Wat Phra Singh, one of Thailand’s most revered temples, is a must-do in Chiang Mai! After paying a small entrance fee, see the impressive golden stupa as it glistens against the sunlight, and the colorful mosaics and beautifully painted murals of the Lai Kam assembly hall, which depict scenes of the local way of life. At a small temple at the back of Wat Phra Singh, you can also find incredibly life-like wax figures of monks in a meditating position. Visit the “Gold Temple” and get a glimpse of classic Lanna art and architecture within the old city center.

Doi Suthep

See the awe-inspiring beauty of nature as you visit Doi Suthep, a mountain over 1,600 meters high. The mountain is also renowned for holding one of the most sacred sites in Chiang Mai, Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, a glistening golden temple that is said to keep a relic of Buddha. But the mountain offers much more than that! You can have a peaceful walk through its evergreen forests and climb up its summit for spectacular views of the city. Home to many tribes, you can also get to know some of the locals and their unique culture and way of life to have a truly memorable and captivating experience. For tourists looking for a more cultural and down-to-earth trip, Doi Suthep is an ideal destination.
