Park
“In 1950 the US government sent military advisers to train tribal police along the border of Thailand. Among them was Harold Mason Young, son of American missionaries, who had been born in Burma. Young started helping injured animals, and his collection started getting visitors. The Chiang Mai provincial government set aside 24 acres (9.7 ha) at the base of Doi Suthep, the mountain immediately adjacent to Chiang Mai, and the facility was opened to the public in 1957. When Young died in 1974, the property was taken over by Chiang Mai Province. The zoo was expanded to its current 200 acres (81 ha) footprint, transferred to the Zoological Park Organization under the patronage of the King of Thailand, and opened as the official zoo of Chang Mai Province in 1977. ”

Plaza
“Little artist village project where local artisans (artists), quaint souvenir shops, cafe and small restaurants located in narrow little walkway setting like back in old day. A series of shophouses designed to highlight traditional and modernThai architectures in harmony. In the center of the community, it is a small amphitheater to create outdoor lifestyle and host several activities throughout the year. Perfect when you need a break from husling town for a couple hours. Perhaps opportunity to selfie and indulge ourself a little bit in the local experiences. ”

“Intermediate difficulty (Lots of steep climbing steps) Or called Monk's trail. This is one of the closest hiking trail to Chiangmai town area. Wat Pha Lat is nested in the forest just a few kilometres from famous Prathat Doi Suthep temple. Here is very peaceful and you can enjoy the bird-eyed view of Chiangmai town with less distractions.”
