Chiang Mai has quiet a few Hiking Trails that you can take. While most of the guided tours that you will find yourself being offered are a few days long, there are those which last day long as well.
Doi Inthanon is the main hiking destination and offers a variety of trails, its hard to describe each one of those here and you are best to decide that when you get to Chiang Mai. about 5 years ago
Chiangmai is one of beautiful place in north of Thailand.Below I got from http://www.1stopchiangmai.com/
The people of Northern Thailand pride themselves on their warm hospitality and unique culture. When you travel to Chiang Mai expect to see hotel staff wearing traditional costume, and stay in rooms decorated in classic Lanna styles from centuries ago. Even the humble backpacker guesthouses are a particularly social experience, not to mention great value. Then there’s the casual atmosphere of the city bars and some of the best value dining in Thailand. Even Chiang Mai’s numerous spas have become famous!
Chiang Mai travel highlights
The ancient city of Chiang Mai is a travel guide favourite, mainly because it oozes culture and history with its pretty moat, crumbling bastions and ruined pagodas at every turn. Staying among the old town lanes offers an authentic taste of provincial Thailand, with centuries-old temples, bustling street markets and cosy guesthouses and coffee shops on every corner. Then there’s soft adventure trips to mountain national parks and waterfalls nearby, trekking, elephant riding, family attractions and more. Shopping is another notable advantage in Chiang Mai, along with very affordable hotels and restaurants. about 5 years agoAnswered by Lungem_bkk via WorldNomads.com
