Chiang Mai Trekking | The best trekking in Chiang Mai with Piroon Nantaya

Experience Chiang Mai

There is so much to see and do

Chiang Mai is a smaller and more relaxed answer to the bustled madness of Bangkok. Many travellers who come here return again and again whether they were seeking a trekking adventure or a cultural and spiritual experience when visiting the many temples within walking distance to each other. The city offers a lot of things to do: cooking classes, temple visits, delicious street food, and lots of culture and beyond its boundaries, you'll find some of mother natures finest natural perfection and unique communities deep into the mountains.
Chiang Mai is a special city with much to offer, and the following are a few recommendations what to do and see in and around this wonderful city.
