List where to watch Sunset in Chiang Mai
Sunset on Doi Pui Viewpoint Chiang Mai
One of the most famous places to see sunset in Chiang Mai is the Doi Pui viewpoint. You can hike or cycle up to Doi Pui, take a Red Truck, Taxi or ride up yourself with a motorbike. When you’re a traveler and comfortable to rent a motorbike this is by far the easiest to get to the Doi Pui Viewpoint and see the sunset. As you don’t have to wait on anyone and get there on your own time plus you get the advantage to ride the beautiful road up yourself. Beside that its also a cheap option as the rest of the day you’ve the motorbike to explore more around Chiang Mai. One of my favorites is the one day Motorbik Loop near Chiang Mai named Samoeng Loop. Other great options when you’re at Doi Suthep already are hiking the Mt Doi Pui Track to the summit and visit the Hmong Village.

Sunset Rooftop Chiang Mai
When you want to see the sunset on a rooftop in Chiang Mai, Furama and the Rooftop of Maya mall are great option. Have a little bite and a drink while enjoying the sunset. Both places have fingerfood als a long list of drinks. Advantage of the Maya Mall rooftop is that they have multiple bars and restaurants so you can choose where you want to sit, drink and eat or extend your night for a little dance on the LIVE music.
Sunset on Hug Hostel Rooftop Chiang Mai
In my opinion the best Sunset for a backpacker is the rooftop of HUG hostel. As they have a nice place to sit a bar to drink and often een crowd to mingle with its a great place to spent the early evening. While making new friends and plans for the rest of the night you oversee the city with mountains and the Sunset in Chiang Mai you will remember. (if you don’t drink too much) Other great thing I experienced on a very clear evening was the full moon that showed up at the opposite side of the sun and was HUGE. From memory this was in December just before Christmas.
