Also known as the Handicrafts Highway, San Kamphaeng is an 18-kilometre stretch of highway just outside Chiang Mai that is known for its arts and crafts. The villages and factories here produce a variety of items like silk, pottery, lacquerware, jewellery, and honey. For anyone keen to buy these kinds of products or simply to see craftsmen at work, San Kamphaeng is the ideal day trip.
The area dates back to 1902 and continues to be hugely popular today. During peak tourist seasons, the highway is congested with cars coming to and from the crafts villages as it’s the only highway passing through. The road is lined with dozens of shops and factories on both sides of the road, allowing a glimpse into Chiang Mai’s centuries-old traditions.
