Day 1 - Chiang Mai


Today is your first day in Chiang Mai, so spend some time wandering the city, orienting yourself and soaking in the sights. If you want a short, but fun activity, check out the Peak, Chiang Mai's highest rock-climbing wall. Experienced climbers and beginners alike are allowed to tackle the peak. If you know what you're doing, climb the Peak then stick around for a little while to watch the *ahem* less experienced attempt it.
For a relaxing night, head to The Pub. It was voted one of the world's best in the 80's, and while it may not still rank so high, it's a fun, low-key place to grab a beer in the evening.
Your lodging options vary in Chiang Mai, from upscale resort to basic cottage. For a decent B&B, try the 3 Sis B&B. For something a little more resort-y but not overly plush, I recommend the Tamarind VIllage.

Day 2 - Chiang Mai


Today is "culture day." Start out your introduction to all things Chiang Mai in the Doi Inthanon National Park. There are tons of hikes to choose from, from waterfalls to cliffs to lush vegetation. Go with a tour group for more background, or by yourself for some time alone with the orchids and the birds.
Have dinner tonight at the Old Chiang Mai Cultural Center; dinner comes with a show that involves acient Tahi dancing, and hill-tribe performances at the Hill Tribe Theater.

Day 3 - Thailand, Chiang Mai


This is your second day of touring a National Park...but what a tour! Take the free shuttle service to and from this famous "Tour of the Gibbons" where you'll get to visit an authentic hill tribe village (remember their dances from last night?), hike and, best of all, take a treetop eco tour. That's right: treetop. Using cables and sky bridges you get to clamber around the upper canopy of an ancient rainforest. You can feel good about it to, because a portion of the proceeds from your tour fund gibbon conservation.
You can spend the night in the hill tribe village if you'd like, or head back to Chiang Mai for a more civilization-heavy night at the Horn Bar. Depends on whether you want to spend a night with crazy animals, or in a Thai village.

Day 4 - Chiang Mai


Two days of park visits means it's time for a day in town. Get your adventure on at the Extreme Sports center (more fun with a few buddies) where you can bungee jump, off road, play paintball or ride go karts. C'mon, let the 12 year-old inside come out and play for a while.
Spend the evening at the Loi Kroh Massage Salon because you really should be sore by now, and also because it would be a travesty to leave Chiang Mai without getting a massage.
If the massage doesn't send you to sleep, keep the party going at the Drunken Flower. Come for dinner and stay for drinks. Their lovely courtyard is a relaxing place to spend your evening hours and the menu is a nice mix of Thi and American fare.

Day 5 - Chiang Mai


Get a healthy, and hearty breakfast at Whole Earth Restaurant, then head to Chiang Mai Rock Climbing adventures. Here you can rent gear, take climbing beginning or intermediate-level climbing classes or take a caving tour/class in Chiang Mai's extensive cave system.
Toast your epic vacation at the White Lotus Restaurant and Bar. The clientele is a nice mix of locals, expats and visitors, and the relaxed atmosphere and excellent food is a great way to cap off your trip.
