Full description

Meet at the  Wat Phra Singh Temple in Chang Mai. Drive countryside on a long but comfortable drive.

Stop at the hot springs halfway between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. The water is warm enough that you will witness locals boiling their breakfast eggs in the geothermal water. 

Then, visit the iconic White Temple, an impressive temple known worldwide for its unique sculptures and carvings. Capture the beauty of this photogenic point designed by Thailand's famous artist, Chaloemchai.

Next, head off to the Big Buddha, an impressive statue and temple at the top of a small hill. If there is no special celebration that day, you can go up inside the Buddha's head and take in the views. Have a lunch break and enjoy a delicious Thai meal.

Move on to the next highlight, a visit to the Black House Museum. Learn about the history behind this Lanna-style house designed by artist Thawan Duchanee. See his masterpieces in a contemporary artwork museum. Discover sculptures, wooden carvings, and furniture created by him. In the afternoon, see another of Chiang Rai’s gems, The Blue Temple, with its impressive murals. Listen to the history of the city and temple from your informative Spanish guide. You will have the optional to visit the Karen Village ( entrance fee 500 baht per pax ) if you would like to learn more about the culture and lifestyle of the northern hill tribes. Wear traditional outfits, learn how to craft handmade goods, and see the famous neck rings worn by Karen women.

After a full day of sightseeing and exploring, make the journey back to Chiang Mai. You will be dropped off at your hotel around 7:00 PM.

One of the best excursions we have done in Thailand! Highlight the guide Bird, he explains everything clearly and closely, he brought us closer to Thai culture, he answered all our questions with great kindness, a professional in every way. You can tell that he is a trained person, of all the guides we have had, without a doubt, the one who best knew how to transmit his extensive knowledge to us. To visit Chan Rai is the best option.
