Things to Do in Chiang Rai

The city of Chiang Rai, Thailand was founded in the year 1262 and is one of the hottest tourist destinations in Thailand nowadays and it is perfect for winter getaways. Cool air and chill atmosphere are what we need during the conference period.

The City is filled with history and tradition, yet the city doesn’t boast an obvious Old Town appearance. Chiang Rai tourist attractions are located throughout the city center – and just beyond the city limits. Chiang Rai sightseeing isn’t limited to specific sights, but also includes experiences. Chiang Rai city is a relatively small town but is surprisingly popular with tourists, both Thai and western. While the center city itself is small, the country areas of the province are huge. Most package tours normally include a few days in Chiang Rai, probably because it’s a very pretty town surrounded by countryside and mountains.

Besides beautiful scenery, there are many fun and interesting things to do and see in the province. When to compare to Phuket, Pattaya and Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai is less well-known. Normally tourists would be thinking at first arrive it was so small that it would probably be boring and dull. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. It’s certain that the level of excitement in Chiang Rai is less than those of top Thailand’s tourist destinations. However, the diversity of landscape, nature and culture make Chiang Rai more interesting.

One or two days really wasn’t enough to do everything most tourists want to do, many tourist would think they have to take a return trip there later to explore more about Chiang Rai. Chiang rai is the ideal place for winter for many reasons. Out of all the things to see and do in and around Chiang Rai though, there are 10 top places you really shouldn’t miss during winter.
