Attractions touristiques

Le parc national Doi Inthanon

Le parc national Doi Inthanon s’étend sur plusieurs zones de la province de Chiang Mai. Le parc national est composé de hautes montagnes, y compris Doi Inthanon, qui est la plus haute cime en Thaïlande et la source de beaucoup de rivières comme la Rivière Ping. Le parc national dispose de magnifiques paysages naturels dont fait partie la cascade Mae Ya, l'une des plus belles de Thaïlande. Historiquement, la montagne de Doi Inthanon était appelée Doi Ang Ka. Le prince Intharawichayanon, le dernier souverain de Chiang Mai, a réalisé l'importance des forêts pour la Thaïlande, notamment dans le nord, où elles servent de bassin hydrologique pour le pays. Après sa mort, la montagne a été renommée Inthanon, une version courte de son nom. Aujourd'hui, les visiteurs peuvent voir la stupa Inthanon Wichayanon sur le sommet de Doi Ang Ka.

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

Wat Phra That Doi Suthep est un temple bouddhiste souvent appelé Doi Suthep bien qu'il s'agisse du nom de la montagne sur laquelle il se trouve. Situé à 15 kilomètres de la ville de Chiang Mai, ce lieu vénéré par les Thaïlandais vous offre une vue impressionnante de Chiang. L'origine de la fondation du temple reste une légende et il en existe des versions variées. Il est dit que le temple a été construit en 1383, quand le premier chedi a été construit.

Chiang Mai Old City

Buddhism plays an important role in Chiang Mai’s past and current history, and this is evident in the number of wats (temples) standing in the Old City, surrounded by old gates. The impressive Wat Phra Singh, one of Chiang Mai’s most-visited temples and finest examples of classic Lanna style architecture, dates back to the 14th century and houses a venerated Buddha image. Wat Chedi Luang is known for playing host to Chiang Mai’s largest Buddhist pagoda while Wat Chiang Man is the city’s oldest temple, established by the founder of the city in the late years of the 13th century. This quaint temple contains two famous Buddhas. Other interesting temples include Wat Phan Tao and Wat Bupparam which has a charming little teak bòt and decorated in Lanna style. 
The old city is 15 minutes away from the resort by road.


In a city where handicrafts reign supreme, it is no surprise to find markets and shopping opportunities in abundance. Often referred as the ‘Handicraft Highway’, Sankamphaeng Road is where you will find a superb variety of handicrafts, including lacquer ware, pottery, colourful hand-painted umbrellas made of Bamboo or Sa paper, silver, gem, silk and antiques. You’ll also be able to see the craftsmen at work and marvel at century-old production techniques like umbrella making, crafted by hand with the aid of some basic rural tools. 

One of the city’s main night-time attractions, the bustling Chiang Mai Night Bazaar offers an undisputable variety of handicraft and exotic souvenirs. You will find shopping buildings filled with antique and handicraft stores or clothes and home décor, along with myriad market stalls and the Anusan Market where tables of vendors sell knitted caps and carved soaps. In true Thai market fashion, Chiang Mai Night Bazaar presents dining opportunities galore.

Warorot Market also is a can’t-miss shopping stop. This is where you’ll catch a glimpse of the local lifestyle, for locals come to shop for fresh food and flowers. The stalls at this bustling market are filled with higher-quality items and souvenirs. Succulent local food is a must-try at Warorot Market. 

Right at the heart of the old walled city, the Sunday afternoon Walking Street features a market that showcases a variety of artisan crafts and arts. Open every Sunday from 4.00pm onwards, the market also features Thai style street performances.

More contemporary additions to Chiang Mai shopping scenes include Central Festival shopping centre and Central Plaza Chiang Mai Airport department store, respectively less than 10 minutes away by road and 20 minutes away. 

Travel as a local

About 15 minutes from the resort by road, Nimmahemin Street is a popular place for locals and visitors alike. Strolling down the main street and small alleys will lead you passed locally designed shops and cosy local cafés along the street. Now regarded as the coffee capital of Thailand, Chiang Mai has a recent yet strong coffee culture, apparent in the preponderance of coffee shops and work space cafés in the old city and around Nimmahemin Street. Popular coffee shops operated by independent growers and roasters include the like of Ristr8to, Ponganges, Akha Ama, and Nine-One Coffee. 

In addition to fragrant coffees and northern Thai specialities, foodies who desire to go local in Chiang Mai will be searching for the ultimate Khao Soi. Khao Soi is the city’s signature dish, combining flat wheat and deep-fried crispy noodles soaked in a spicy coconut curry and seasoned with pickled cabbage, line and roast chilli paste.   

Exploring outdoors

Found at the heart of an area once known as the Lanna Kingdom, meaning “the land of a million fields, and surrounded by rolling hills and vivid green rice fields, Chiang Mai makes for a sublime destination for soft adventures and for landlubbers. Elephant trekking is an all-time favourite, offering you to trek the lush green forests on the back of one of these gentle giants. You’ll also enjoy the option of becoming a mahout for a day. 

Cycling is also very popular in Chiang Mai, with leisurely biking routes that combine stunning landscapes of green-blanketed hills and rivers, and the opportunity to experience the local culture. Hiking is equally popular. Our team will gladly suggest scenic hiking expeditions through the Doi Inthanon National Park or in and around the Chiang Dao area, where the homonymous Chiang Dao Cave is a highlight to any visit. One of the top-rated tourist attractions in northern Thailand, the mystical cave is home to stunning crystal formations and several sacred Buddha images. 

Steep mountains, beautiful scenery and the 10-kilometre Mae Tang River running along rural hill tribe villages form the background of an exciting white-water rafting adventure.
