Where to Go in Chiang Mai in October

Recommendation Rate of Travel: 
The first recommended stop to visit in Chiang Mai is one of the many temples in old town area. Wat Phra Singh is the largest and one of the most popular among them. It is in Lanna-Thai style. In addition to the architecture, also pay attention to delicate murals and reliefs there. Surrounding Chiang Mai, Doi Suthep is the best place to visit. It is a great destination not only to appreciate charming natural scenery, but also to pray for good luck in Wat Phrathat and learn the life of the royal family in Bhubing Palace. At the foot of Doi Suthep, the Night Safari is home to many animals and you can also make a stop there to intimate with them if time permits. When it’s rainy, you’d better stay indoor to enjoy a Thai spa, or watch a boxing show; the 3D Art Museum is also a fun place to visit.
