The nightlife scene in laid-back Chiang Mai is considerably tamer than that of, say, Bangkok, but if you still have some energy to burn after a long day of sightseeing you’ll have no trouble finding a mellow bar serving cold, cheap bottles of Chang and Leo beer, nightclubs with dance floors packed until the early morning hours or a karaoke bar to belt out a song or three in the company of locals and tourists alike. For the highest concentration of all of the above, our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend heading to the popular tourist areas on Moon Muang Road, near the Old City, and around the Night Bazaar on Loi Kroh Road, where you dance the night away at megaclubs like Mandalay or sip beers at any one of the many English-style pubs.
