Teenagers are not the easiest travel companions. They can be moody and often miss their friends back home. Finding activities they enjoy can perk up a teenager and help them forget their homesickness. Here are some fun things we did with our teens in Chiang Mai.
It is no secret that one of our favorite things to do while traveling is eat, especially local foods. I have no doubt that one of the reasons we love Chiang Mai so much is its wide selection of amazing food to eat. Here are our top places to eat in Chiang Mai.
If you are going to Chiang Mai be sure to put Art in Paradise on your itinerary. Our family visited in November of 2015 and had so much fun! We spent hours jumping in and out of the art work, taking hundreds of photos.
Chiang Mai is known for its beautiful Buddhist wats. You could spend a whole day or more wandering around the old city visiting these ornate temples.

We looked around at lodging options and figured out that our most economical option would be to use Airbnb. We had never used Airbnb before so this was a new experience for us.
