20 Things to do in Chiang Mai, Thailand Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Today we’re taking you around a city that we’ve been to many times before: Chiang Mai. Located in the heart of Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is a growing city with laid back vibes, temples sprinkled around every corner, and a foodie scene that will make you drool. This is a destination where you come to unwind and that’s exactly what we did during our month long visit. Now let’s get started with this tour of Chiang Mai (清邁) so you can see what this city is all about:

One of the best things you can do in Chiang Mai is ditch the map and get lost inside the old city. It’s along the quiet back lanes that you’ll find cozy cafes, terracotta gardens, unvisited temples, and a little flavour of the old Chiang Mai.

As you’ve probably figured out, we’re not really into nightlife, but Chiang Mai does have lots of bars where you can enjoy a drink or two. We kept things light with a Chang beer.

And that’s a wrap for our visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand. We hope this video gave you a little taste of what this city is all about. We’ll be the first to tell you that we barely scratched the surface in terms of everything Chiang Mai (清迈) has to offer, but that being said, the goal of our time here was to relax, eat well, see friends, and catch up on work. As always, if you have any other suggestions of things to do, places to visit, and restaurants to eat at, feel free to share those with fellow travellers in the comments below. Until next time!

This is part of our Travel in Thailand video series showcasing Thai food, Thai culture and Thai cuisine.

Chiang Mai Street Food at Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก)

There’s a lot of delicious Chiang Mai street food to eat when you visit, and one of my favorite places in the city, during the evening is Chang Phueak. More details here: http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/04/khao-kham-moo-chang-phueak/

If you love to eat Thai street food, you’ll have no problem discovering the full range, more like a plethora of food available at your fingertips when you’re in Chiang Mai. From the morning until the evening you’ll find street food vendors scattered throughout the city, and tucked into shopping markets. While there are many places to eat Chiang Mai street food in the evening, one place that I really like is called Pratu Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก), which literally translates to the sacred white elephant gate. It’s located right across the street from the north side of the Chiang Mai wall, so the area is easily accessible central Chiang Mai.

During the daytime, Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก) is more of just an empty sidewalk, with some stores, but not too much going on. In the evening is when the Chiang Mai street food stall begin to set up their shops and open for business. My wife told me there were two main stall we needed to eat at, one for the stewed pork leg, known in Thai as kha moo, and one for the suki, the Thai style of sukiyaki.

We first started with a stall known as Khao Kha Moo Chang Phueak (ข้าวขาหมูช้างเผือก). You’ll know you’re in the right spot because of the owner, who is the vendor, who sells her stewed pork leg while wearing a cowboy hat – you can also call her stall, the Cowboy lady street food stall in Chiang Mai, and everyone will know who you’re talking about. She serves a Thai dish known as khao kha moo (ข้าวขาหมู), which is pork leg or knuckle, served with rice. I ordered just a normal plate, so it came with rice on the bottom and a good handful of tender pork on top. Along with the pork, I got a hard boiled egg and then garnished my entire dish with vinegar, raw garlic, and raw chilies. I would have to say it was one of the better plates of khao kha moo (ข้าวขาหมู) that I’ve ever had – I would highly recommend it.

After completing my plate of khao kha moo (ข้าวขาหมู), I went next door to the next Chiang Mai street food stall known as Suki Koka (สุกี้โคคา). They are equally as famous as the pork leg stall, but for the Thai dish of suki. You can either order the dry stir fried version, or the soup version of Thai suki: I got the suki haeng moo (สุกี้แห้งหมู), the dry version with pork. It was a mixture of mostly napa cabbage, pork, and mung bean noodles, all served with a sauce that was tangy and had a wonderful aroma of sesame oil to it. I absolutely loved the suki at Suki Koka (สุกี้โคคา). It was different from other Thai versions that I’ve had before, and it was so fresh and there was so much flavor packed into it – excellent. There are a few other street food stalls to choose from, but these two are the most popular, and I think they serve the best food.

Here are the two street food stalls I ate at Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก).

Suki Koka (สุกี้โคคา): http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2014/04/suki-koka-chiang-mai/

When you’re looking for great street food in Chiang Mai, make sure you go to Chang Phueak (ช้างเผือก) in the evening and eat at these two stalls.

Chiang Mai revisited

Everyday life in the city of Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand.
Incidental music by myself (XBDA Records) + 2 excerpts from the Scintilli and Heaven’s Door albums by Plaid (Warp Records WARPD183 & WARPCD215) –
In my original video the level of the street noise was lower, but the clever robots at YouTube compressed the sound so that now the noise is too loud and the music too quiet. I could certainly do without their unwanted “enhancements”…

Chiang Mai (Thailand) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Chiang Mai in Thailand.
Chiang Mai is the most important city in northern Thailand and is located within a fertile river valley three hundred metres above sea level.

The City of Temples was founded in 1296 and was once the capital of Lanna Thai, the ‘Kingdom of a Million Rice Fields’ and the centre of the first independent kingdom in Thailand, situated within the famous Golden Triangle.

Two hundred ninety steps lead up to the city’s main landmark, the mountain temple of Wat Doi Suthep, on the northern edge of the city.

Chiang Mai Zoo was inaugurated in 1957 and today, it is the largest and finest zoo in Thailand and contains hundreds of varieties of animals.

The world famous village of Bo Sang is located nine kilometres from the city. It is where a fascinating range of parasols are manufactured, according to age old tradition, with silk, cotton and paper parasols made by hand and are decorated with various animal and floral motifs.

A visit to a training centre for elephants is a fascinating experience. The elephants perform what they have learned in the school and diligently carry out each of their trainer’s commands.

Chiang Mai’s evening market is well worth a visit. Although it has changed with the times, haggling is still the norm.

Mysterious and exotic, colorful and friendly, such is Thailand’s ‘Rose of the North’, Chiang Mai.
