What To Expect
Suited for all riders, including families, our Chiang Mai half-day tour takes you on a memorable and informative tour of the city's most interesting sights and beyond the city walls to see temples, markets and an ancient city.
We'll have a leisurely start along the banks of the Ping River, this tour will be an introduction to Thai culture and that can best be done by doing as the locals do and go to temples and markets, as your guide will explain the importance of Buddhism in Thai culture. Set in manicured, quiet grounds next to the river you can admire the colonial style white buildings that include a church and hospital.
We pass beautiful traditional teak houses and can say hello to the Thai men fishing in the Ping River. We enter some spacious grassy parkland and stop for some fruit and a cool drink. We later explore the ancient city of Wiang Khum Kham which dates back to the 13th Century. Just excavated in the 1980s after being buried under mud from the river, we can visit an ancient temple which has a spirit house where a former king's spirit is said to reside.
We re-enter Chiang Mai's old city through Tha Pae Gate and stop at Somphet market have a look at the local fresh herbs that make northern Thai food so special, and this will be a great photo opportunity as well.
We ride approximately 30 km on good quality flat tarmac roads. An air-con support vehicle will follow and provide water and fresh fruit.
