CHIANG MAI CITY TOUR - FULL DAY
One of the main highlights of any journey to the Northern Rose, Chiang Mai, is a visit to the famous Doi Suthep Mountain located in the outskirts of the city. Doi Suthep (1.676 m) is one of the twin peaks of mountains located west of Chiang Mai, the other peak is known as Doi Oui. We will visit the top of Doi Suthep were we will have a breathtaking view of Chiang Mai city. One of the most beautiful temples in North Thailand is located on top of Doi Suthep. The much sacred Wat Phratat Doi Suithep was founded in 1383 and is a great symbol of the Buddhist traditions in Northern Thailand. A road to the temple was built in 1935 by the Karen people.
After our visit to Doi Suthep we will make a stop at the bottom of Doi Suthep to see the beautiful Huay Kaew Waterfall which is a fascinating 3-stage waterfall and 10 meters height with rising water year round.
Driving from the waterfall we will follow Huay Kaew road and pass by the campus of Chiang Mai University and then visit the Studio Naenna Gallery. Studio Naenna were founded by Patricia Chessman in 1987 and displays handmade one-of-a-kind textiles based on decades of tradition. The studio is well renowned and Mrs. Chessman acts as an advisor for the Thai Art Department at Thammasat University. The clients will have an opportunity to watch textiles been made and purchase items on display.
Hereafter we will drive to the untouristic Nimmanhaemin Road, which is the main dining and shopping area for the young and middle-aged generation in Chiang Mai. Here we will find some of the best restaurants in town and there will be a chance to do some shopping or just soak up the atmosphere on one of the many small and charming cafees. We will eat our lunch in a nice restaurant were the clients will have the opportunity to try some of the delicious local dishes.
After lunch and free time at Nimmanhaemin Road we will drive to the Old Center of Chiang Mai and show them points of interest. We will give an introduction to the Old Center and show them were the famous Sunday Market takes place near Tapae gate.
Hereafter we will drive to China Town and show them the fresh market and also the flower market. A good chance to witness the vibrant China Town, which most tourist to Chiang Mai never see during their visit. After China Town we will visit Wat Chai Mongkol. This isn’t perhaps the most famous temple of Chiang Mai, but on the other hand many local people use this temple for making merit or show respect to the Lord Buddha. A chance for the clients to observe a functioning temple. From the temple we will take a boat trip on Mae Ping River. Duration 1 hour.
