While Chiang Mai is predominately known for it’s Temples, Trekking Adventures, and other cultural activities, there is a multitude of things to keep your nights busy after a day full of training or sightseeing. Chiang Mai nightlife while not as well known as some of the other areas in Thailand still has a lot to offer for visitors and locals.
When choosing the location for Team Quest Thailand we decided on Chiang Mai because of the quiet nature of the city but a city that is not lacking stuff to do. In Chiang Mai you are able to train hard during the week, but still have many options to take part in during your time off.
