When searching for places to visit in Thailand, most travel blogs would suggest Bangkok, Thailand’s capital city, Phuket where you can find some of the world’s finest beaches, or Koh Samui, the country’s third largest island – also boasting palm-fringed beaches. But today, we will introduce to you a part of Chiang Mai some of you might not be familiar with.

Among the misty mountains and hill tribes of Chiang Mai lies Nimmanhaemin Road, a neighborhood that is slowly making a name for itself as one of the newest must-visit Thailand travel destinations in Chiang Mai.

Shying away from the traditional holiday destinations of Thailand’s Northern province, Nimmanhaemin Road and its surrounding areas called Nimman have now been one of the popular Thailand travel attractions that boast trendy bars, cafes, restaurants, boutique hostels, and hotels to cater to the needs of tourists.


While the Old City of Chiang Mai marvels with temples and Night Bazaars, Nimmanhaemin Road takes the spotlight as the epicenter of the city’s nightlife. Complete your Thailand trip and take a pick from our list of resto bars in Chiang Mai and experience a nightlife like no other.


Warm Up Cafe

Myst Rooftop Bar

When you’re in Thailand, make sure to include Myst Rooftop Bar in your travel itinerary.

It is best to arrive early or book a table in advance if you don’t want to wait standing without a place to put your drinks.
