City of Stars

Set on a lush mountainside, the small town of Chiang Dao draws visitors with its natural beauty and outdoor adventures. Towering limestone peaks, lively jungles, and one of the country's deepest caves create an otherworldly setting not often seen by tourists limiting their visit to Thailand's beaches. Birdwatchers and hikers frequent the picturesque town, but the destination also welcomes those looking for quieter settings and relaxing activities. When it comes to transportation, do not depend on taxis unless you stay near the center of town. Rent a motorcycle for the duration of your Chiang Dao holiday, and enjoy the freedom of having your own transportation. Make the most of your holiday in Chiang Dao by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Thailand trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Chiang Dao

Chiang Dao lodgings range from backpacker rooms to cozy resorts, so there is something for every budget. The town remains a perfect getaway for tourists wanting to escape crowds and explore Thailand's untamed wilderness, and some guesthouses are set in the jungle to provide easy access to those unspoiled areas. In true Thai spirit, guesthouses are warmly decorated and run by friendly staff, though many rooms often share bathrooms and offer no air conditioning. If you plan to visit at the peak of the season, reserve your accommodations in advance and expect higher prices for both rooms and bike rentals.
