Inside the old city, you will find lots of bars, restaurants, temples, shops, galleries, and many other fascinating things.

You can take a taxi to the top of the mountain, where there is a temple that you can visit which gives majestic views of Chiang Mai. You will need to climb 309 steps to get to the top, but you can also take a funicular railway to the top if the climb is too much for you.
