2. Camp Chiang Mai
As those winter spells call to us again, many thousands of people from across the world visit Chiang Mai and are blown away by the cool breeze and the foggy views. Many tourists however, miss out on the best things that Chiang Mai has to offer, unaware of the secret views, eating places and social hubs that are ever new in the city.
For anyone, local or just passing through, We would like to introduce ‘Camp Meating’. This folk style luxury barbeque camp out is in gorgeous scenery of the Pack Squadron lands of Mae Rim. Oh, and the word ‘meating’ is not a typo. Visitors are invited to enjoy cooking with friends, family or lovers with the cool northern ambience of folk music and the sweet smells of grilled meats and potatoes. So grab your camera, your cosiest jumper and follow us!! More details and reservation: 090 4049500
3. Kew Mae Pan Nature Trail
The Kew Mae Pan Nature Trail, is found at kilometer 42 on the road to Doi Inthanon National Park Summit. It has been developed as an ‘educative nature trail’ and you will enjoy your nice short trekking about 2.78 km. along a beautiful view and forest. There is a 200 baht entrance fee which pays for a guide (Hmong guide) to accompany you, although mine did not speak much English.
4. The Giant
The quaint village of Pok in Mae On district is home to this stunning tree-house coffee shop-cum-resort in the middle of the jungle. It looks like something out of a children’s tale, with seating for 20 nestled in a gargantuan banyan tree (advance booking is a must). The café offers an extensive menu of coffee (iced B120, hot B85) brewed with locally farmed beans, as well as finger foods like sausage pizza (B199), shrimp-stuffed spring rolls (B85) and Chinese-style steamed shrimp dumplings (B85).

5. The Barn: Eatery Design
A group of architects wanted a place where they could work late at night. The result is this cool barn-like venue tucked deep down a soi near Wat Suandok. The no-frills food and drink menu is tailored for those getting down to business (coffee, spaghetti), while there’s also some booze for knock-off time, such as Beerlao black (B 60). They offer a private room, too. 14 Srivichai Soi 4, 084-222-8937. Open daily 10 am-1 am
6. Vieng Joom On
Vieng Joom On is a beautiful teahouse on the banks of the Mae Ping river, famous for unusual blends of teas and delicious Thai cakes and desserts. Located on Charoenraj Road it is impossible to miss, the exterior walls painted a bright fuchsia pink. If you are staying in Chiang Mai Old Town we recommend taking a tuk tuk or Songtaew to Vieng Joom On, as the walk is a little far. The teahouse is open every day from 10:00 until 19:00 and it’s the perfect spot for a light lunch or a sweet treat. Along the same stretch of road you will find some interesting artisan and craft shops that are also worth checking out! +66 (0)53 303 113

9. OASIS Rooftop Garden Bar
Most of Chiang Mai’s rooftop bars are set a little outside the Old City – or just have no views at all. OASIS Rooftop Garden Bar is an exception to the rule, located just inside the northeastern corner of the old moat. Chill-out tunes compliment the excellent views over to Doi Suthep Mountain perfectly, even more so if you arrive as the sun sinks below the horizon (between 18:00-19:00). Emphasis is more on the cocktails rather than anything else, with a short but quality lineup of classics and signature mixes alongside your usual bottled beers and Thai-style pub snacks.
