Family friendly travelling in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is a truly incredible city that offers something for people of all ages. Nestled among the mountains of northern Thailand in an area of astounding beauty, it offers plenty of opportunities for families to explore—whether you enjoy seeing stunning cascading waterfalls or zip-lining through the trees. In the heart of the city you’ll find an area rich in history and culture, sandwiched between the bustling markets, fantastic restaurants, and quirky shops that Chiang Mai has in droves.

Things to see in Chiang Mai

On your family vacation in Chiang Mai, an outing to some of the city’s over 200 temples is a must for getting to know the local culture and history. Most well-known is the ruined Buddhist temple of Wat Chedi Luang, which many would say is unmissable. The Art in Paradise museum is great for adults and kids alike—featuring a huge collection of 3D illusion art that will boggle the mind and trick the eyes, and creates fantastic photo opportunities! The Elephant Nature Park is great to visit as a family, and allows you to see and work with the animals up close. Kids will love the chance to get involved with every aspect of the elephants’ well-being and support this rescue center. For something a bit livelier, visit the incredible walking street markets that take place on Saturdays and Sundays—here you’ll find everything from bargain souvenirs to mouth-watering food.

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

Riverside offers a great range of accommodation including family-friendly hotels. Here you’ll find yourself perfectly positioned to explore the city, while also being able to enjoy the fact that it’s relatively quiet. A bit further out on the edge of the city is Mountainside—a more upmarket area that is closer to the beauty of the surrounding mountains and nature. The Old City area tends to be cheaper, but there are some great family-friendly hotels in Chiang Mai to be found here, and it’s the ideal location for exploring many of the sights and temples of the city.

How to get to Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai International Airport is one of the main points of entry for travel to Chiang Mai and covers domestic flights from cities like Bangkok, as well as international flights from major Asian cities. It’s easy to get a cab into nearby Chiang Mai from the airport, and many family-friendly hotels offer airport transfers. Alternatively you could catch a train (overnight sleeper train services are available) or a bus if you’re traveling around Thailand. Getting around town is pretty easy—tuk-tuks are common but not ideal for families, so catching a songthaew or a taxi is probably the best option.
