Holidays to Chiang Rai
Northern Thailand is famous for its stunning mountains and friendly hill tribe people, and Chiang Rai is the perfect base to explore the unique landscapes and cultures in this fascinating part of the country. This is a great holiday destination for adventurous travellers who like to get out and explore.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai enjoys a unique location close to the borders of Laos and Myanmar and nestled in the midst of mountains where many diverse groups of people reside. Many people come on a holiday to Chiang Rai to go trekking to the small hill tribe villages that are scattered throughout this region. Here you can see how the local people live, buy authentic handicrafts made with local products, and enjoy traditional food with friendly families in the villages.
Nature lovers will find Chiang Rai to be a great base for trips into the forests and mountains that lie outside the city. The Kok River is a lovely place to spend a day for its tranquil beach, lazy trips down the river on bamboo rafts, and fun elephant treks along the banks of the river and into the jungles. Visitors can also head to the Namtok Khun Kon Forest Park to gaze at the breathtaking waterfall here, or head to the Pong Phra Bat hot springs to soak away your aches and pains.
A trip to Chiang Rai would not be complete without a visit to the fabulous NIght Bazaar. This is where you can stock up on souvenirs such as paintings, jewellery, silks, and handbags. The night market also has a vibrant food section where you can enjoy tasty treats such as crispy fried fish, spicy noodle soups, and savoury northern Thai sausages. Don’t forget to wash it all down with an icy cold Singha or Chang beer.
