Chiang Dao

Nestled high in the mountains in Chiang Mai province is the small town of Chiang Dao, which means ‘city of the stars’ – named as such due to its high altitude. The cool temperature makes it a great place to explore the surrounding limestone peaks.

You’ll find plenty of friendly hill tribe members in Chiang Dao, and ample opportunity to try dishes you won’t find elsewhere. Just 80km from Chiang Mai and with numerous caves, hot springs and waterfalls to explore, as well as mountains, it’s a real find in the heart of cool Chiang Mai province.
