Everything for the gram! That’s what I say when I take a couple of photos, in front of too many people, looking like a complete idiot most of the time. Before I travel, besides looking up what to do and where to go, I use Google to look for any Instagram hotspots in the city. Having spent a week in Chiang Mai, I can honestly say that Chiang Mai is very instagrammable! So, here it is. The top 5 Instagram hotspots in Chiang Mai.
This small cafe and hotel are absolutely Instagram worthy! If you’re all about a white theme or white, bright photos, this place is like Disneyland for you. The interior is white, some grey and beautiful marble tables. Everywhere is the right spot to take a photo. Even the coffee is pretty and delicious! This cafe is perfect for a good cup of coffee or a refreshing cold drink (love their coconut juice) with a delightful piece of pie. Afterwards, take some photos but don’t be surprised if you’re not the only one Instagram ‘model’ there.
Not only is this hotel a great co-working space it’s also perfect for Instagram. The hotel has a modern black and white design with a pool. The front of the hotel is ideal for photo’s, but the pool area is even better. The large black doors, the white walls, and the blue pool create a beautiful and timeless setting for your photo’s. For 200 bath you can use the co-working space inside, get one soda drink and use the pool for the entire day. If you only want to take some photo’s around the pool, order a drink, and it should be fine.
3. Frosé Yoghurt Cafe
This frozen yoghurt cafe is the cutest! The interior works really well if you’re all into a pink or colourful Instagram feed. Besides all the pink, there are also flamingo’s, fluffy cushions and neon light signs. Even the yoghurts and the drinks are suitable for Instagram. They are colourful, cute, pretty and delicious. Refresh yourself on a hot day with some frozen yoghurt, a cool drink (my favourite is the mango coconut bubble) or a pink soda with a flamingo on top and shoot some awesome photos before you leave.
Rosélate serves gelato 🙂 I love the play on the name! This ice cream shop also falls under the category colourful spots in Chiang Mai. Their interior is white and teal blue which will work perfectly with a colourful, white or cool toned Instagram theme. Their gelato is made fresh every day using only natural ingredients. But, the best part is that it’s served in the shape of a rose. That is absolutely worth a spot in the top 5 of Instagram hotspots in Chiang Mai.
First of all, this place is not only good for Instagram, but they also serve delicious breakfast and lunch dishes. It’s tucked away between a lot of green and sitting outside gives you the feeling of being in nature. The cafe has an art gallery, therefore the cafe is surrounded by paintings and sculptures. For their interior, they used a lot of beige, green and wood. The combination of their rustic interior, the nature vibe and the art give this place a peaceful and unique feeling. Start your day with breakfast here (I love there mozzarella, fried egg, tomato sandwich) and take some photos. The pictures will go well if your Instagram has a rustic or natural theme.
