  • Address: Chiang Mai, Thailand
The Mae Ping River cuts through Chiang Mai just a few blocks east of the old city and night market. In central Chiang Mai the banks of the river have been developed and are home to hotels, open-air restaurants, and bars, while in the countryside the river retains its natural charms. The ancient city of Wiang Kum Kam is also set on the banks of the Mae Ping River south of Chiang Mai.

Sight-seeing tours and dinner cruises along the Mae Ping River available. For the more adventurous, kayaking and rafting trips can be arranged.

Practical Info

The Mae Ping River flows through Chiang Mai just east of the city center. From Chiang Mai it continues south and joins the Chao Phraya River near Bangkok before emptying into the Gulf of Thailand.

The Mae Ping River has a history of breaching its banks and has caused severe flooding in Chiang Mai as recently as 2011.
