The River Ping is a lot like Chiang Mai: leisurely, beautiful and relaxing. Traditional wooden houses line the banks, boutique stalls stocked with tribal antiques are common and large restaurants serve some of the finest Thai cuisine in the city. At night, fairy lights twinkle all along the river and there is nowhere more romantic to spend an evening. We have explored the area in detail and are proud of our results.
Knowing how difficult and time consuming it can be to decide where to eat, where to shop and what to do, our Top 10 Guides have been created with travellers in mind, using our years of local knowledge and experience to sort out the best from the rest. This is the most concise and useable resource you will find for discovering the best of Chiang Mai’s Riverside.
