tominspires

The principal city of northern Thailand, situated on the Ping River near the border with Myanmar, is Chiang Mai.  Founded in the 13th century, this jungle city has immense historical and cultural significance to Thailand.  It was capital of the Lan Na Kingdom, one of the principal tributaries of the Kingdom of Siam.  Contributor Tominspires used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create a mesmerizing aerial view of this city, home to some of the most well known (and spectacular) Buddhist Temples in the world.

Unraveled Studios created this epic drone video from one of the most scenic spots in Thailand.  It's shot at Doi Inthanon, the highest mountain in Thailand at almost 2.6k meters (8.4k ft.) above sea level.  It's in the country's Chiang Mai province, its northernmost, near the border with Myanmar.  The video beautifully captures the mountain peak at sunset as well as the iconic looking Doi Inthanon temple shimmering in the fading sunlight.

Chiang Ma, Thailand: Elephants and Canyon Jumping

RoamwithJohn

The title of this video is perhaps a little misleading - it has elephants and Grand Canyon (of Thailand) jumping, but it's not elephants jumping the canyon.  Contributor and drone pilot RoamwithJohn created this marvelous aerial video of the Elephant Care & Grand Canyon destination in the Chiang Mai province of northern Thailand.  It is a protected sancturary where Thailand's endangered elephants (who once numbered over 100k) can be seen in a natural environment.

Beautiful Mountain Temple in Thailand's Lampang Province

Monskie123

Monskie123 used a drone to create this phenomenal aerial tour of the province of Lampang in Northern Thailand.  Lampang is situated to the south of the better known province of Chiang Mai.  While its mountains are not quite as high as those of the province to its north, they are nonetheless spectacular.  Some of the rock formations of their peaks have temples atop them, further enhancing the visual appeal of this province which is still "under the radar" of the world's tourists.

Where-is-Fab

In this video, contributor and drone pilot Where-is-Fab gives us a bird's eye view of a beautiful spot in the far northern reaches of Thailand.  Chiang Dao is the northernmost district of the province of Chiang Mai, its northernmost province.  The district is in the heart of the mountains that cover northern Thailand, up against the border of Myanmar.  As you'll see, this is a place of stunning beauty, much closer in resemblance to Myanmar than to Bangkok or Phuket.

Karst mountains require unusual combinations of rock composition and drainage patterns to form; basically they are caused by rocks dissolving into underground pools.  One of the places where these conditions exist is in Northern Thailand.  In this drone video from LV4260, you'll get a look at some karst formations in the district of Noen Maprang District.  It's part of the region of Phitsanulok Province, which lies due north of Bangkok and borders on Thailand's eastern neighbor Laos.

Karen Village of the Longnecks, Chiang Rai, Thailand

RoamwithJohn

RoamwithJohn created this beautiful drone video of a remote area of Northern Thailand which is home to a highly distinctive ethnic group called the Kayan.  Fleeing persecution in Burma, some of the tribe settled around a village called Karen in the province of Chiang Rai, the northernmost province of Thailand.  Female Kayan undergo various treatments and procedures to make their necks appear longer; for this reason, the people in the area are known as the Karen Longnecks.
