I was looking for something a bit off the beaten track to do in Chang Mai, and one of the surprising attractions a bit outside the city was the Baan Kang Wat artist village (Tripadvisor). I must admit, I was not expecting it to be this lovely, a bit of an unexpected hidden gem, but it’s really nicely done, with lots of small galleries, and lovely cafes with terrific food, and lots of photo ops. They host some open markets on Sundays and various workshops on different topics, it definitely has an artist hipstery vibe.
