Activities In Chiang Rai

The range of activities in Chiang Rai can be surprising to many vacationers with the modern, cultural and historic all providing something for every taste. A Thai cooking class is one of the best activities in Chiang Rai and offers the opportunity to cook your favourite dishes, learn about the various herbs and spices and take home a craft that can be enjoyed over and over again.

Cycling is also a great activity in Chiang Rai with groups being treated to amazing sites along the way, which may include a temple, waterfall, wild tropical plants and even a visit to an Opium Museum. The Golden Triangle where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Burma meet is a fantastic location where great culture can be viewed in living action.

Another of the best activities that is a must for any visitor is to experience the local way of life and this can be done either on a boat trip along the Mae Kok River with a stop off at one the hilltribes. Alternatively you can venture into the tropical jungle on an elephant ride and cool off in the river or at a picturesque waterfall.

A great end to a day hiking or cycling and the perfect cure to sore muscles is a visit to a traditional steam house such as the one located in Ban Kamlar. If a spot of pampering is needed then of course there are many day spas to chose from too.
