Since the mid-00s the kilometer-long road between Huay Kaew and Suthep has attracted trendy coffee shops, natty boutiques, hot and cool night spots and some of the city's most modern apartments. If you want to be seen - or want to watch people who want to be seen - this is probably the place for you.
Chiang Mai University
is a public research university in northern Thailand founded in 1964 with a strong emphasis on engineering, science, and agriculture. Its instructional mission includes undergraduate, graduate, professional and continuing education offered through resident instruction.

Kad Suan Kaew (Central)
Kad Suan Kaew, commonly known as Central, is the largest shopping centre in Chiang Mai. It is a huge and sometimes confusing complex housing among others a hotel, mini bowling alley, a department store, supermarket, food court, restaurants and cinema
Kad Suan Kaew also plays host to Chiang Mai's only branch of British retailer Marks and Spencer and many specialist and general retailers and had largest of cinemas in the Vista chain and shows films in
Phra Singh Temple
is located in the western part of the old city centre of Chiang Mai, which is contained within the city walls and moat. The main entrance, which is guarded by Singhs (lions), is situated at the end of the main street (Rachadamnoen road) of Chiang Mai. The road runs east from the temple, via Tapae Gate, to the Ping River.
Tuk Tuks have many advantages as well as certain disadvantages. First off, a tuk tuk is a three wheeled, window-less hybrid between a motorcycle and a taxi. They are painted in bright colours (reds, blues and greens) making them easily identified, and are found all throughout the city.
The advantages to taking tuk tuks are their inexpensive prices and their convenience. (a ride should cost about 40THB - 60THB, with longer rides no more than 100 THB anywhere in the city)TukTuks parked outside shops and hotels are usually less flexible on price, if they want too much, walk away and lag down a moving one.
REMEMBER: The fares must be negotiated, so make sure to bargain and agree on a price before setting off. The main problem with riding a tuk tuk is that breathing in car fumes is unavoidable.
Songthaews or Lot Daeng(Red Car) are covered, long-bed trucks, outfitted with seats to carry passengers. The Red Songthaews are cheaper than tuk tuks, costing 15THB to go anywhere in the city. But because they pick up and drop off as they go, direct transportation to a destination may not be an option, unless you engage the driver for that specific purpose and agree to the rate beforehand.
Besides red songtaews, Chiangmai also has yellow, white, green and blue songtaews witheach colour going to a different, outlying area of Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai Airport to Kantary Hills
Around 3Km away, taking a taxi will be the best option. To get a cab from the airport you need to go to the taxi coupon booth. Once you have collected your checked luggage, go to a taxi counter (you can't miss them). Tell them where you are going and pay the flat fee of 120THB (for city area locations) AT the counter.
