Nightlife in Chiang Mai offers a balanced and refined experience that's nevertheless active and vibrant, less wild than Bangkok, but with plenty of good drinks and live music. In the Old City, head to Zoe in Yellow, among the most popular nightclubs in the city, or visit some of the laid-back neighbourhood bars and live music spots. At Riverside, you'll find high-end bars and elegant restaurants with stunning Ping River views.

Visit Head for Nimmanhaemin Road, just minutes away from Chiang Mai University, and you'll find a student-centric nightlife scene. This is the spot with clubs spinning the latest popular music and dotted with casual late-night eats.
