You’ve done Bangkok and are ready to discover the more adventurous, nature-surrounded side of Thailand. Chiang Mai is a well-known backpacker hub and a must for everyone’s first visit to Thailand. Moreover, it is a perfect starting point for anyone who is backpacking or travelling for the first time.
Day 1: The City
Start with a day tour of the city. Chiang Mai is quite small and walkable, but an infamous tuk-tuk is always an option as well! Finding a nice place to take a break and eat or enjoy a coffee will never be a problem here as options abound – the real issue will be deciding what and where to do so!

Day 5: Furry friends
Because everyone loves cute animals (no matter how tough we pretend to be), so booking a day tour to zip line across lush forests while spotting gibbons is the perfect way to end the trip!
