This is also where you’ll find the Nawarat Bridge, one of the main bridges of the province, which has been built over the Mae Ping River. If you have a chance to visit during Loy Krathong or the lantern festival, the Nawarat Bridge and the riverbanks light up with hundreds of beautiful handmade lanterns that are released into the sky.
The district is home to several cultural attractions as well, including the Wat Buphharam; an impressive temple that is known for housing the largest Buddha image in Thailand, which has been made out of teak wood. Located outside the old walled city, Wat Buphharam was constructed in 1497. It’s one of the most important temples in Chiang Mai, and worth a visit.
Kids and adults alike will enjoy a visit to the Elephant Parade House in Chang Moi. It features an incredible array of colourful elephant statues from all corners of the globe. Take home an elephant as a souvenir, or better yet, paint your own. Elephant Parade offers relaxing artistic activities centred around these majestic animals.
