Where to Go in Chiang Mai in March

Recommendation Rate of Travel: 

Chiang Mai is a Buddhist city with lots of temples. How could one visit the city without a stop at a temple? In addition to the most famous Wat Phra Singh and Wat Chedi Luang in downtown, the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep is also worthy of visit. Located on the Mt. Doi Suthep with an altitude of 1,676 meters (5,499 feet), it offers a panoramic view of the whole Chiang Mai downtown. One can ascend it either by cable car or on foot. If climbing up by foot, two giant dragons along the steps for sure will attract one’s eyes. Coming down, one could have fun in the Night Safari at the foot of the mountain and intimate with various animals. To learn the life of the locals, it is recommended to have a stroll in Waroros Market, which abounds in local snacks and specialties. 


1. When visiting temples, please wear clothes covering both arms and legs well. 
2. Apply sunscreen cream before going outdoor and drink enough water during sightseeing.
