  • Found this museum to be really interesting and helpful in its discussion of N. Thailand's hill tribes. The outside portion is also pretty good and builds out one building each from many of said cultures. Only drawback is that it's very far from old city / river. Would suggest renting a tuktuk/taxi to go here and to 7 spires temple then bring back to old city or somewhere else of interest.
  • Good information about the different ethnic hill tribes in the north of Thailand
  • A good walk
  • I would like to get inside to see here, will see here soon. Mon→FRI open
  • The museum was closed today because of "Emergengy maintenance".

Where to stay in Chiang Mai

While visiting Chiang Mai, keep in mind that the old town district and the area surrounding the famous night market offer both boutique (relatively expensive) and backpacker (relatively inexpensive) options. The riverside neighborhoods boast exclusive hotels and resorts, where comparatively pricey rooms come with good views and extensive facilities.
