You may not only dine with a family and sleep in a traditional hilltribe house, but you can also participate in everyday chores like farming and cooking.

The six resident elephants at ChangChill (which means “relaxed elephants” in Thai) not only graze, bathe, and mingle in the Chiang Mai hills, but also symbolise what we think will be the future of elephant tourism. Visitors may learn about the elephants’ history, view them in their natural environment, and meet the mahouts who are responsible for their care.

9. Wat doi Suthep in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is a temple-filled city. You can’t go more than a few steps in the Old City without coming across one, and they’re all well worth your time as a traveller. However, one of northern Thailand’s most revered temples, the one sits atop the Doi Suthep mountain on the western suburbs of Chiang Mai, is not to be missed. It is quite simple to plan a journey up the mountain to view the temple from Chiang Mai, and there are several options. The views from the temple and the grandeur of the surrounding region make for a wonderful day excursion from the city, regardless of which option you select.
