Chiang Mai, located within the north, stands as the cultural and religious hub of Thailand. Not only is it filled with hundreds of seriously impressive Buddist temples, it’s over-flowing with street food markets, busy night clubs and ever-so-popular elephant sanctuaries. We spent 3 weeks overall in Chiang Mai, expending just about every adventurous activity there is to do there. Below is a list of the top 10 things to do in Chiang Mai as well as how to get there and how to get a around once your here.
1 - Grand Canyon Waterpark
As far we are concerned this is the absolute best thing to do in Chiang Mai! It is hours and hours of fun and worth every penny you pay, Plus the entry price includes one go on the zip-line!
The entire place is built in an abandoned limestone quarry which naturally filled up with water during monsoon season. There are some awesome jumps here - up to 13m high and you can also wakeboard here for an additional price. However, the main attraction is the enormous inflatable obstacle course which is simply epic! Ever watched Total Wipeout?...here's your chance to try your very own!
We also wanted to mention how awesome the staff here are, such a good laugh!
Chiang Mai Grand Canyon costs 450 baht to enter, 50 baht to rent a locker and 100 baht (refundable deposit) for the locker key. The ticket price is 350 baht for children under 1.20 metres tall and, for children under 90 cm, only 90 baht.
The cheapest way to get here is using a Songthaew or Grab.
