Attractions in Chiang Mai – Thailand sights

Discover the attractions in Chiang Mai

What attractions in Chiang Mai can be discovered in the north of Thailand? A trip to the north of Thailand is definitely worth it. First, you should know that it is much cooler there than in the south. I noticed the fresh 12 ° C in the early morning on our trip to the mountain after it was already too late. The arrival by bus from Pattaya to Chiang Mai were very cool.

Ochsenkutschenfahrt in Chiang Mai

Ox-carriage ride

On some day trips, oxcart rides are also available. So two oxen are connected to a cart. Of course, there is also a parasol for the tourists. Our coach ride went a bit through the National Park in Chiang Mai. During the trip we were able to feed the oxen with bananas and take pictures.


Bamboo Rafting

On the river in Chiang Mai we rafted during our day trip. The bamboo raft is a simple boat made of bamboo wood, which is tied together to form a raft. During our trip I was allowed to drive the raft once. I have to say that the short time as a captain was a lot of fun. However, controlling the bamboo raft with a bamboo paddle is very tiring. On our way we passed a small waterfall that flowed into the river. We also drove through a few smaller rapids.
