Nimmanhaemin road is simply the coolest and funkiest street in town.
Affectionately called Nimman by the locals or sometimes “Coffee Street”, it is Chiang Mai’s chicest neighborhood. Situated east of the mountains and west of the moat, this byway is a busy city center with plenty of trendy coffee shops, natty boutiques, hot and cool night spots, art galleries, artistic trendy community malls and some of the city’s best restaurants.
Thailand’s northern capital, Chiang Mai, is the country’s second most-visited city. A small city nestled in the northern hills of Thailand, the city is worlds away from bustling Bangkok yet still offers a little something for everyone.
With its smaller size and population, Chiang Mai has a lot to offer to tourists and travellers alike.
The city center and old town are packed with glittering temples, excellent restaurants and expansive local markets all of which are easily taken in on foot.
The city has quite a cosmopolitan feel when compared to other northern Thai provinces, and it has a lively entertainment and arty scene, supplemented by the best eating in northern Thailand — this is not a town you’ll go hungry in.
Though it’s reasonably small, there’s enough in Chiang Mai to fill everyday with different experiences and activities…or just as easy to spend your time relaxing and feeling up the city’s sabai sabai (comfortable and relaxed) vibe. The best days here have a mix of both.
