Chiang Mai Mind and Soul - Small Group Tour

This was the absolute highlight of my 5 days visit in Chiang Mai! LOVED it! I was lucky enough to be the only person booked on this experience so could really talk with my guide, Thongbang, who was absolutely lovely and clearly had a passion for educating people about Buddhism. ...Rosie R., USA – See more reviews
