There’s a lot to do in Chiang Mai, as it’s one of the most well-known destinations in Thailand. Just like other parts of the country, there’s lots of temples, a night market, and amazing food. I haven’t been to that part of Thailand yet, but I’d love to go next time. Mainly, I’d love to go and indulge in the food scene of Chiang Mai, which is known for being spicier than the rest of the country. And pet elephants. Always (ethically) pet an elephant when in Thailand.
