Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is the most important temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Built in the early 19th Buddhist century, the beauty of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is marked by seven-headed serpent statues that line the stairs to the temple where a Chiang Saen style golden pagoda and all its exquisite Lanna architecture is situated. The view of Chiang Mai from here is just phenomenal as well. At Wat Phra That Doi Suthep they also have Tiaw Khuen Doi Festival, which is the travel up Doi Suthep Hill to worship the Buddhist relics enshrined there. It is an experience worth checking out. Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is located in Tambon Suthep, Amphoe Mueang, Chiang Mai Province. Doi Suthep Hill is 14 kilometers away from the center of Chiang Mai.

Wat Chedi Luang's massive chedi (pagoda) was built sometime between 1385 and 1402, during the reign of King Saen Muang Ma, 7th ruler of the Mengrai dynasty and is a distinctive feature of the Chiang Mai skyline. At its peak, the chedi measured 60 metres across at the square base and 80 metres tall and was once the home of the Emerald Buddha, Thailand's most sacred religious relic. Damaged during an earthquake in 1545, the chedi’s height is reduced to nearly half of its original size yet it is still an impressive structure. In 1992, the Fine Arts Department finished restoration work around the chedi, bringing back the naga (water serpent) staircase on each of its faces and wonderful statues of elephants adorning the base. The actual work on the chedi itself, however, was never quite complete, leaving it in its present state.
The village that produces silverware which has become Chiang Mai's famous and precious handicraft. Creating silverware is both art and craft which require delicacy for the beautiful and unique design that is the characteristic of Wualai silverware.The origin of the beautiful local silverware from Ban Sri Suphan, Chiang Mai was shown through evidences that it was since King Mangrai founded Chiang Mai and negotiated with Bagan to bring craftsmen to Chiang Mai in order to teach townspeople the skill. This created the local silverware industry which has been carried on through generations especially the silverware making of Ban Sri Suphan's craftsmen specializing in raising and carving silver bowls which promoted the craftsmen to be artisans in Chiang Mai's capital in the past.
Baan Tawai is the village of wood carving handicrafts. It has been known as the major cultural attraction of Chiangmai for Thai and foreign tourists. The best quality and bargains of wood carving items can be found in Baan Tawai.
This village is renowned, among Thai and foreign tourist alike, for the uniqueness of its umbrellas which are exquisitely painted on cotton, silk and Sa paper making them very popular products. Umbrella making is regarded as the main occupation of all households in Tambon Bo Sang San Kamphaeng District. Apart from generating a sizable income, this form of livelihood has also helped form bonds between local family members, as all of them can join hands in making this unique handicraft. Consequently, the traditional art of umbrella making and painting, has been preserved and passed on from the distant past to the present day. Finished umbrellas are dried in the open space around the house, attracting passing tourist to stop by and buy them as souvenirs.

It is the outmost area of Chiang Mai where it has many natural tourist attractions, the most well-known and talk of the town is "Ban Mae Kampong". Above all a small village, a long with tradition and culture. There are also many interesting things to do such as observe living ways of Mae Kampong villagers.

The main venue for shopping in Chiang Mai, indeed all of Thailand, the night bazaar is a can't-miss part of the Chiang Mai experience. Ground zero of this nightly commerce bomb is located at the intersection of Chang Khlan Road and Loi Khro Road but the whole thing spreads out for two blocks in either direction. Set up time is around sunset (usually about 18:00) and shopping goes on unabated until about 22:30 with a few vendors remaining open even later. A good way to check out the whole thing is to start at Tha Phae Road and work your way south towards Loi Khro. Once you reach the end of the market, cross the street and work your way back along the other side. Don't forget to peek down the little sois (alleyways) and arcades along the way. If you see something you like you might want to be patient-there are hundreds of vendors and an absolute flood of products for sale.
The Sunday Weekend Walking Street is easily the most popular shopping experience in Chiang Mai. A vibrant spectrum of art, crafts, music and food – with handmade quality goods and souvenirs that echo the spirit of Northern Thailand. The Sunday Walking Street serves as a venue for all kinds of local events, from dance recitals to beauty pageants and the sois (lanes) on either side of the main road feature stages and performance spaces. It starts at ThaPae Gate and runs all along Ratchadamnoen Rd, for around one kilometre. As the name suggests it takes place every Sunday from 16:00 until around midnight. The road is closed to traffic during this time, and as one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, it does get busy.
Wualai, the Saturday walking street, is a lively and fun night market that takes place in Chiang Mai just a short walk from the old city walls. It starts in the late afternoon and continues until around 22:30. We prefer the atmosphere here to the more famous Sunday night walking street, because even though it’s smaller, there aren’t the same crowds of people, so it makes for a much more leisurely stroll. Not only are there plenty of handicraft items and locally-made products, it’s also a good place to pick up some tasty snacks to provide sustenance as you wander around. Wualai Road links to Thipanet Road, near the south side of the old city walls, and around a ten to fifteen minute walk from Tha Pae Gate.
Also called Wat Intharawat, Wat Ton Kwen is a small temple named after a tree. 14 km outside Chiang Mai, built in 1858, it is very popular with Thais and very little visited by foreign tourists. It is one of the few Lanna style temples with an original wooden wihaan (ordination hall)
Muang Kung Village, one of Thailand’s most well-known pottery villages. The most popular product is the traditional earthenware jug (Nam Ton) as this keeps water naturally cool that has narrow top, bulge middle.
