“The Chiang Mai night ride is a MUST! Apart from seeing all the wonderful Chiang Mai temples lit up and looking stunning against the night sky we also visited the fruit and vegetable market and flower market. ...Elizabeth C., United Kingdom – See more reviews
What To Expect
When the sun sets Chiang Mai doesn't stop, but it does slow down and the ancient temples with their illuminated golden spires take on a magical feel. See the old town from a different perspective as you cycle through quiet back roads, small lanes and alleyways as the temperatures cool down.
We start our discovery of Chiang Mai city after the peak rush hour traffic has died down. Chiang Mai is bright enough at night that we can photograph the beautifully lit temples and statues as we learn about the history and geography of this ancient city. We ride down to the river and take a walk through the evening fresh market, stocked with the most amazing array of fruits and vegetable - delicious, healthy snacks are everywhere!
We drop in to a night school and can learn a bit of Thai with the recent immigrants from Burma and Laos. We then follow the river to the famous flower market and we cross the river and head through some beautiful manicured gardens on route to the train station. From here we head to Tha Pae gate to check out what the locals do for various forms of exercise in the evening. Have a game of badminton, practice your Tai Chi or just people watch for a while.
