Chiang Mai Nightlife
Nightlife in Chiang Mai is much more low-key than Bangkok, but going out in Chiang Mai is still a great deal of fun. The locals love to party and there are plenty of bars, discos and karaoke lounges to have fun in.
The great thing about Chiang Mai is its very easy to get around and hop from bar to bar. The city centre is very compact and there many different types of venue scattered throughout the city. The busiest nightlife zones are near Tapae Gate (tourists), Loi Kroh Road (tourists) and along Charoenrat Road (locals and tourists) on the eastern bank of the Ping River.
