Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

I could see it being a good city for single guys. It could possibly be hard for single woman if they are looking to meet a guy. It's a great city for families as it's safe, has lots of outdoor activities, and you can live in a house with a yard and place for kids to ride bikes, as opposed to a high-rise apartment. - Mar 2019

Chiang Mai can sometimes feel like a sleepy town. There are options for families (school events, movies, bowling alleys, climbing wall, swimming pools, etc.). Outdoorsy people will enjoy Chiang Mai's location near mountains (hills) and waterfalls. Singles may find Chiang Mai a bit dull, especially compared to the action of Bangkok. - May 2007
