Mae Chan Vacations
From Mae Chan, the city of Chiang Mai is approximately 120 miles (193 kilometers) to the southwest.
North Thailand is a well-established travel destination, which means getting around is a breeze. Be sure give yourself enough time to experience the numerous scenic and cultural wonders the region has to offer. If you'd like to find even more things to see and do, try the Mae Sai Shrine and Wat Phra That Wai Dao in the vicinity of Mae Sai, which is roughly 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the south of Mae Chan.
Approximately 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south of Mae Chan is Chiang Rai, a regional center where you go see Wat Phra That Doi Chom Thong, King Meng Rai the Great Monument and Chiangrai Rajabhat University. Should you have the time, it's worth investigating Chaing Rai Clock Tower, Mae Fah Luang University and Doi Tung Royal Villa before you head back to Mae Chan.
Fuel your mind by spending a few hours at North Thailand's great craft workshops. To experience the spiritual life of Mae Chan, why not call into the region's shrines.
The wider region offers some great options for active travelers who enjoy watersports. Canoeing and boating are some of the ways to have fun upon the water here. If your picture of the ideal vacation is maxing-out your heart rate in unique natural environments, then join one of the many hiking or mountain biking trips the Mae Chan area has to offer.
When it is time to depart from this unique place, say goodbye the way Thai's do, with a heartfelt "Laa gòn ná."
