"Chiang Mai has such a warm, welcoming feel to it. I never felt uncomfortable. I walked home by myself later at night and, apart from the odd stray dog, I never felt worried for my safety."

Best travel insurance for Chiang Mai

Travel insurance isn't mandatory, but recommended. 
Choose a plan that offers coverage for Covid-19 and unexpected quarantine. If you plan to ride a motorbike or moped, make sure you have the correct license and that you're wearing your helmet (travel insurance usually won't cover you if you were not following the local safety rules and regulations!)
