And when it comes to exploring all these in one city then Chiang Mai, Thailand's second most favourite tourist destination, only next in line to Bangkok, is the place you need to visit. Highlights include:

The Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Temple:

Boasting a relaxed vibe - the very essence of Thai culture - the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is a white elephant shrine that features a large golden stupa. The temple has long inspired aesthetes from all over the world and made thousands fall in love with its charismatic architecture. The site is located on the Doi Suthep Mountain which is about 15 kilometres from central Chiang Mai. Visiting the Doi Suthep Mountain is a complete daytrip. Apart from the temple, there is the Doi Suthep-Pui National Park that houses beautiful waterfalls and rich wildlife.

The Wat Phra Singh Temple:

The Wat Phra Singh is yet another temple complex that offers a captivating insight into the culture and practices of ancient Thailand since the temple in question is a restored Buddhist site from the 14th century. Buddha statues, very well done in gold and copper, are the main attractions that enthral the visitors with architectural extravagance and rare natural beauty in the surrounding gardens and countryside.

Chiang Mai Night Bazaar:

But temples are not all that Chiang Mai is famous for. Whereas nightlife in Bangkok is focused on the beaches, the Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is abuzz with locals and tourists alike. This is just the place for souvenir-hunting as only the best handicrafts make it to these shelves. Besides domestic articles and decoration pieces, electronic items and gadgets can also be found under a cheaper price tag.

Chiang Mai Night Safari:

A class apart from the traditional sense of nightlife, roaming a safari park at night gives a unique statement to the nature of your adventure and underlines the fact that Chiang Mai caters to all kinds of tastes. Jeeploads of safari lovers are either in or on their way to this nocturnal paradise and the park offers choices in good food and stage performances. This definitely makes it to the top of any list of tourist attractions that regard uniqueness and adventure above all else.

Maesa Elephant Camp:

Mention the name 'Thailand' and the mind immediately conjures up images of monks climbing a never-ending staircase, a bustling nightlife and of course, elephant rides. Elephants and tourists go hand in hand which is why the last, but certainly not the least important thing on a traveller's to-do list, should be visiting this elephant camp. Feed the majestic giants. Get a ride! Get a selfie!
