Chiang Mai Thailand Art and About – Part 3
Chiang Mai Thailand was not what I expected. I felt the art vibes everywhere we went. it was full of galleries and great shops & cafes.
Family trip to Chiang Mai – Part 3 – My only conclusion is that you need to spend more time to the city, it’s definitely upcoming and interesting.
When I travel I love to discover unique places that will open my mind. Woo cafe was exactly that. it’s not easy to find a place in Thailand that will make you feel like you are in a great concept store in NY city combined with a tropical jungle feeling.
We went to Woo cafe in the afternoon for coffee and cake ( and some fruit shakes) already when we entered the place it felt like you are inside a tropical garden. it was full of tropical plants and colorful flowers ( the ones I wish I had at home) divided into separate areas and different sitting arrangements.
An extension of The coffee area with many rooms for the art items and just beautiful pieces you want to have at home. on the second floor, there is a gallery with painting that changes monthly.
The service was good and friendly ( we were with 4 kids after all ) and the cake and juices were served beautifully and tasty.
I wish I had more time there.
This place is a MUST see for the lifestyle traveler and for people who appreciate great spots of art and food.
When leaving Woo I realized all the street is full of art galleries and made the family walk for a bit.
The first place we saw just in front of woo was Regina Garden – I must admit the cats made me enter but it was like entering a vintage store with interesting things to discover.
have a look once you are there.
On the same street as the woo cafe, you can also find the meeting room cafe. when we were there it was packed with people having a party. it looked really cool and seemed like a nice place to have a coffee and see some art.
Great place – worth a visit.
About 40 minutes from Chiang Mai old city you will find Tita cafe, It’s on the way to the north part of Chiang Mai. An art gallery with selected items and artwork, A nice coffee with delicious cakes and a small shop.
the place combines the tranquility of a coffee house, with a nice loft, and a casual presentation of art. while outside is nature all around.
If you are in the area or have spare time – go there it’s worth it!
Just 10 -15 minutes taxi ride from the old city and you will find The latest addition to Chiang Mai’s shopping scene. beautifully designed complex with the most luxury brands combine Art, Culture and Contemporary Art Center, an all-in-one complex that is an open concept designed with great taste. There is also a small food court.
But you must visit the area next to one nimman: one side has the Maya mall ( Maya Lifestyle Shopping Center)
I found tons of different markets and cool shops in that area. just take your time and walk around.
Go and see you will love it.`
In front of one nimman you will find the Think park ( I love that small park it was stylish with unique restaurants and boutiques and a huge tree above it all) and next to it you will find the Cat Nap – a small street with great vibes that has markets – don’t forget to check the dates here.
In the area on the back of one nimman you can find tons of galleries and cool restaurants like: Rustic and Blue, Gallery Seascape, Fairytales and more…just walk in Nimmanheamin road.
Unlucky for us we didn’t have time and when we came it was raining too hard to walk around and discover.
Go and see small and sweet.
In the old city, you can also enter a tropical forest to get away from the sun. we walked a lot to get there and when we entered everyone was so happy, there have fens with trees and it felt cool and inviting. the food was delicious and the pink shake was a big hit!
Defently a recomanded place. next to it, there is also a luxery spa you should try.
On our way to the fen cafe we entered my secret cafe, unfortunately, it was full but looked very nice too.
