Beyond pubs and music bars, Chiang Rai also has a handful of proper nightclubs to let loose in.
Most of Chiang Rai’s nightlife is on the Jed Yod strip, but Leelavadee is special because it’s one of the very few establishments of any kind sitting right on the Mae Kok riverside.
The prominent destinations mostly visited by tourists are the famous White and Blue Temple, Singha Park or Golden Triangle.
The Khantoke Dinner at the Old Chiang Mai Cultural Center is based around the traditional Thai dinner and dancing show.
Covering four street blocks just southeast of the Clock Tower, Chiang Rai Night Bazaar is a nice diversion from Jet Yod Road’s bar-hopping scene.
Tucked down the private Punyodyana Lane, this simple bar setup has a few outdoor wooden tables and a pool corner.
