Voice of Travelers to Chiang Mai

Day trip to Chiang Mai

I went using Singapore Airlines on the economy class ticket. They had exceptional customer service, and the seats were comfortable with good leg space. Chiang Mai was a beautiful city with so many stunning structures and places to go to. I visited the most impressive temple in Chiang Mai, Wat Prathat Doi Southep, and the gorgeous Bua Thong waterfalls. I also enjoyed the delicious Thai cuisine and had an opportunity to participate in an evening cooking class at Beny's Home Cooking School. The scenic beauty and tranquility of the city is worth visiting again.

Adventure at Chiang Mai

'Memorable,' is how I always describe my visit to Chiang Mai. I chose Chiang Mai as my holiday destination place because it is the ultimate place in Thailand for adventure. There were many places around the city with a broad range of adventurous activities to explore. I took a trip to Chiang Mai with Thai Airways as their air ticket was fairly priced. The flight was on time, and their services surpassed my expectations. My most thrilling adventure was seven hours of rafting 10 kilometers of River Mae Taeng. I also visited an elephant village in Mae Tang. I had an epic time with a mahout who showed me how to bathe, ride, prepare food and herb balls for the elephants.
