Family Tour in Chiang Mai

The family tour in Chiang Mai for the kids will be a mini-adventure for learning and recreation. This trip is also for a newcomer who has just visited Chiang Mai. It’s a suggestion for planning a trip that can be short or long, depending on your schedule.

After adjusting your physical condition to the local time, you may start with light activities and gradually increase the level of assumption of traveling by plane and taking a direct flight from Europe to Chiang Mai, which was previously available.

Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX)

Fly a direct flight to Chiang Mai

You can travel by direct flight. Currently, many destinations and airlines will operate and return to this route again. Please check with your destination and alliance airlines that provide connecting flights.

www.flightsfrom.com There is a search engine for flights flying from Chiang Mai. All scheduled direct (non-stop) flights from Chiang Mai (CNX). Chiang Mai International Airport (CNX) is the fourth-largest airport in Thailand. You can fly to 31 destinations with 26 airlines in scheduled passenger traffic.


Tourists will get a free visa for 30 days in Thailand. Most travel plans are about 21 days long and split into 3 sections [7 days each]: north, south, and central, including Bangkok.

If not, you can plan to travel for 14 days by flying directly to Chiang Mai, traveling around for 7 days, and then going to Khao Lak for 7 days.

These are the travel items I serve to tourists from Europe and Scandinavia. Plans will cover cultures, mountains, beaches, and city life.

Therefore, I have shown an example of a 7-day trip to Chiang Mai so that you can see the overview and use it for your own use.

action plan

City tour for 1-2 days nearby, and then go to the countryside to do mini-adventure or soft trekking, and stay overnight on the mountain for 1 night in the middle section.

For example, on a 2-day, 1-night trip to Doi Inthanon, you will complete all activities around Doi Inthanon and not get tired. But if you have other options, a 1-day Doi Inthanon is still the best activity that should be planned.

In the last section back to the city, you will relax with simple activities, go shopping or leisure, and prepare for your next destination.

Sample itinerary for 7-day

Day 1: Arrival day—Tuning for jet lag

The date of arrival and customization of the jetlag to going outdoors. Because it will help biological clocks adjust faster. Sunlight is also a good help in reducing weariness. When you reach your destination, go for a walk outdoors and make a short trip to the surrounding city.

Mae Kha Canal

Mae Kha Canal is a place that imitates Japanese tourist attractions. It’s good to relax in the evening, and it’s not bad before going to the Chiang Mai Cultural Center for a Northern dinner and a show. The Night Bazaar might be another option after that.

jing jai

Jing Jai Market is an articulation market for going shopping. They also have local food available. Recommend going on Saturday and Sunday mornings, which is better.

Chiang Mai also has a Saturday and Sunday walking street with lots of merchandise. If you come during that time, it would be great.

More days in Chiang Mai

Of course, everyone’s travel schedule is different. You can arrange additional days to relax in Chiang Mai according to your needs.

Travel on your feet in the city. Walking in the morning for 2-3 hours would be great. Have lunch at a hidden restaurant, then ride the Mae Ping River Cruise to escape the city for 2 hours.

wat umong
Wat Umong

You may go to Wat Umong, which is outstandingly different from other temples, and have dinner near the foothill restaurant behind Chiang Mai University, which has many places to choose from.

I have a sample of a walk in the old town. You can read it on the blog: Walking to visit the temples in the old city.

Alternatively, a spa day and massage, or simply relaxing by the pool.

Thai massage has a variety of styles and prices. Shops are scattered in tourist areas. You can look for it conveniently. Most are open from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Here is a paradise for those who love health. I am sure there is a health and spa here that offers good service and good prices and is more luxurious than anywhere else in Thailand.

Other interesting activities

These places can be a pleasant activity if you are coming to Chiang Mai with your family and children. I don’t review much. Since they constantly change their themes, promotions, and offerings, you can allocate time and get an overview of each event on their official website.

I have pinned the locations for each route in the city’s direction.

Other interesting places, such as Chiang Mai Zoo, Royal Park Rajapruek, and Chiang Mai Night Safari, can be mixed with your preferences.
