100 Things to do in Chiang Mai

With so many things to do in the largest city of Northern Thailand, we can’t possibly capture every activity available in Chiang Mai. Most events and activities can be found on TripAdvisor or Facebook anyway. So most of our posts here are contributions by people who visited a particular venue, event or shop before. Some places stay, others move or close. You know how it goes here.

We enjoyed many concerts and live music places in Chiang Mai, so whenever we get the chance we upload and share some of the best videos on our Youtube page Live In Chiang Mai

Have a look and please like, subscribe or comment! If want us to make a video from your concert, send us  a mail and we will contact you.
