I think the days of Chiang Mai being "cold" are pretty much over. In Feb the weather should be hot during the day and cool(er) at night. Day temps will be around 80-90's F and for the most part dry, but you could get an occassional shower at night.

Chiang Mai is also blessed with pristine natural resources of mountains (dois), waterfalls and other nature-based tourist attractions. At the same time, Chiang Mai residents, just like their climate, are warm, gracious and congenial providing authentic hospitality making visits memorable and meaningful. Moreover, visitors from all walks of life can collect handicrafts of silk, silver and wood produced locally as timeless souvenirs.

I was in Chiang Mai last Febuary for a week and it was very warm, if not hot every day. I would say between 30 - 34 degrees and very pleasant nights where the low may touch 15 degrees which certainly aint cold!

February is the transition month between the 'cool season' and the 'hot season'.

If I had to guess, I would say this occurs in the second or third week.

Not only is it very HOT in the second half of the month, but this is the infamous beginning of the 'burning season' which results in very dangerous air quality through out the North.

Travel Tips for Chiang Mai

Eco Tour by the Hilltriebes

by suraphona

Festivals and activities in Khlong Lan vary every month, including the Muser, Lisu and Yao tribes.
New Year festivals in Jan-Feb.
Ploughing ceremonies in March.
Beehive searching in April. C
orn growing in May.
Rice growing in June.
Pest clearance in July.
Merit-making for better corn in August.
Corn harvesting in September.
Vegetable growing in October.
A rice-eating festival in November.
Hmong New Year celebrations in December.

Six hilltribes in Khlong Lan district are offering eco-tours and homestays to tourists who want to experience the lifestyle and culture of highlanders.

Eco-tours would create income and jobs for hilltribe people, encourage respect for hilltribe culture among children, and protect communities from drugs.

Each tribe has its own food for which it is well known: the Karen tribe have their chicken soup boiled with turmeric and acacia.
The Hmong people make a herbal chicken soup which relieves muscular pain.
The Muser tribe makes chili paste mixed with pork.
The Yao tribe is fame for its fried leaves with minced pork.
The Lisu tribe for its somtam with minced pork.
The Leu tribe for its spicy catfish. Visit local attractions such as
the Khlong Lan waterfall,
Tao dam,
Mae Wong forest,
and hilltribe villages.

Hilltriebs-guides are being trained to promote this project.

Doi Inthanon NP

by HasTowelWillTravel

Doi Inthanon is a landmark national park for Thailand. It sits in the cool mountains surrounding Chiang Mai, a relief from the humidity and warmth of below. The park is one of the few places that gets cold enough in the winter to experience frost, a surprise to me when I was visiting there. But it is a solitary, gorgeous place to visit.

You wind upwards on steep hilly roads to the park, passing strawberry fields that are government supported (a benign method of stopping the opium trade... give the people something else to plant and sell) as the pine trees take over your landscape. You arrive at the park, and find lush greenery all around. The park abounds with hiking trails and bird watching opportunities, some heading off to other local villages. There are also great waterfalls to see, Mae Klang and Mae Ya. Simply gorgeous. The park holds Thailand's highest point, Doi Inthanon, which you can hike or drive to, and take a picture at the signpost.

The park is close enough for a day trip from Chiang Mai and indeed many tour companies offer tours of the area), or as a multi-day excursion. You can camp there or live in one of the simple guest houses on hand. Food and water are available during the day.

Chiang Mai Thailand’s Weekend Bazaars

by allthai about Chiang Mai’s unique night walking markets

Almost everyone knows of the Night Bazaar in Chiang Mai along Chang Klang Road but few visitors ever experience Chiang Mai’s unique walking markets on the weekends. These markets on Wualai Road on Saturday and Rajdumnern Road on Sunday are much different than the Night Bazaar.

While the Night Bazaar has it’s flashing neon signs advertising the western food chains and merchandise, crowded narrow walkways crammed with hawkers and tourists, the Weekend Bazaars offer a more relaxing experience. Large wide avenues are blocked off from vehicle traffic at 4 PM until 11 PM. Talented craft persons and northern Thai fresh food vendors politely sell they wares along the sidewalks and on colorful temple grounds.
Both weekend walking markets are excellent however each is different in the types of wares sold, atmosphere and experiences.

The Saturday Bazaar on Wualai Road begins at Rajchiangsean road up to Tipanet Road. This is the old city silver-making district and even today you can still hear the tapping of hammers as the silversmiths sculpture beautiful designs on bowls, cups, bracelets, rings and wall murals. You can watch them make their beautiful creations as they sit on the street in front of their shops.

There are several silver shops on Wualai Road so look at all of them before deciding on a purchase. Bargaining is welcomed and half of the funs of shopping so don’t settle on a fixed price. There are plenty of food and drink vendors along the street and small restaurants where you can take a rest and take in the surroundings so no need to rush.

The Sunday Bazaar on Rajdumnern Road begins at Thapae Gate and ends at the city police station about 6 bocks west. About half way up, at Prapokklao Road, the Bazaar continues south past Wat Chedi Luang for another block and north to the 3 kings statue and the old Provincial Hall, which is now the Chiang Mai City Museum. A stage is set up on the grounds of the museum where northern Thai musicians and dancers in traditional costumes give live performances starting around 7 PM.

Rajdumnern Road seams to have one temple after another. The temple grounds are where almost all the food stalls are set up. Here they have tables and chairs where you can sit and have everything from French Fries to Papaya Salad, soups and grilled Thai dishes. Lots of different foods and deserts you probably have never seen before are available. Soft Thai music is usually played on the temple sound system to add to the eating experience.

Both Bazaars are lots of fun and several hours can be spent here enjoying the culture, food, people and atmosphere. Unlike the Night Bazaar with its copied brand products, fake jewelry and handicrafts made in China or Burma both weekend markets have real handcraft persons selling their goods. Excellent northern Thai food and snacks made fresh by local and country folks, most not found in restaurants, such as “Miengkom” and “Caosoi” have to be tried.

The real fun is not the shopping but the ambience. Every block has traditional Thai Music being played by elders and children. The rich colors of the surrounding temples, the smell of garlic, grilled fish, sausages and chilies being cooked and roasted. People are eating smiling and just having a good time. Oh, one more thing. Get your snack and cold drink and take it to one of the many foot massage operations set up on the sidewalk. Sit back in the comfortable cushioned reclining chair and just watch, listen and take it all in. Wow what a great experience.

Good Middle Eastern Food

by trisanna about Jerusalem Falafel

This is a nice Middle Eastern restaurant right by the city walls. They serve hummus, kebabs, other middle eastern dishes and of course falafel. We came here for the falafel sandwiches. There is some Greek fare as well.

Elephant show: touristy, but enjoyable

by hojasdehierba

We did half a day at a elephant camp. I was not very interested about elephant show, but in the end it was not too long and quite enjoyable. Elephants move in a gracious, elegant way. And they learnt all kind of silly things, like kicking a ball, painting, or doing courtseys to their public. They also learn to ask for some fruit as a reward.
Hicimos medio dia en el campo de elefantes. Yo no tenia mucho interes en el show, pero al final no se me hizo largo y fue bastante divertido. Los elefantes se mueven de un modo elegante y lleno de gracia. Aprenden a hacer todo tipo de chorradas, como pergarle patadas a una pelota, pintar o hacer reverencias a su publico. Tambien aprenden a pedir fruta como recompensa (eso es lo que estan haciendo los de la foto)
