Top Chiang Rai Outdoor Activities

Thailand’s northernmost city is the gateway to the highland hill tribe villages and the Golden Triangle—the mountainous border region of Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand—and it’s an ideal backdrop for an outdoor adventure. Here are some ideas for what to do around Chiang Rai.
 
Hill Tribe Treks
The northern highlands are dotted with rural villages belonging to Thailand’s hill tribes and both day and multi-day treks are possible. Explore villages belonging to the Akha, Lahu, and Karen tribes; learn more about their unique cultures, traditions, and cuisine; and perhaps stay overnight in a local family's home.
 
Biking Tours
One of the best ways to explore Chiang Rai’s countryside is by bike. Cycle past lush rice paddies, rural farms, and tropical fruit orchards; stop to admire landmarks such as Wat Rong Khun (White Temple); and experience local life in the villages along the Lao River.
 
Boat Cruises
Take a day trip to the Golden Triangle and cross the Laos border, riding a ferry across the famous Mekong River. Alternatively, hop aboard a traditional longtail boat and cruise the Mae Kok River, between Chiang Rai and Thathon, near the Myanmar border.
 
Adventure Activities
Adventurous types can head to Singha Park, where adrenaline-fueled activities include ziplining, a climbing wall, and an adventure ropes course. There are also nature trails and cycling paths to explore, and pick-your-own fruit and vegetable gardens.
 
Swimming
When it gets too hot in the city, escape to Nam Tok Khun Kon Forest Park, where it’s a short hike to the Khun Korn Waterfall. Alternatively, cool off at Phong Phra Bat Waterfall, just outside the city, or take a more challenging hike through Lam Nam Kok National Park to reach the Huai Mae Sai Waterfall.

Balloon Chiang Rai-Soft Adventure and Nature Touch Activity

After an early morning pick up from your Chiang Rai hotel, arrive at an authentic farm at Ban Chomna Resort. Enjoy a refreshing tropical Welcome Drink, such as mint, lemon grass or seasonal juice. Watch the Ground Crew prepare for the 'Once-In-A-Lifetime' experience of hot-air ballooning over the stunning Chiang Rai countryside. The experience will take approximately 45 to 60 minutes and will be at dawn, just as the sun rises to start a new day. After landing, take part in the Post Flight Champagne Celebration in the grass hut stations right in the middle of the rice field. Then it is time for an organic Lanna Style A -La-Carte Breakfast with stream sticky rice harvested from their own rice field, together with local herb juice, fruits and vegetables fresh from the garden. Should you wish, you'll get a kick out of a fun farming activity for about 30 minutes (optional) following which you'll be driven back to your Chiang Rai hotel OR to nearby Singha Park.
