Full description
The tour begins with early morning pickup from your accommodation in Chiang Mai and travels north-east to the province of Chiang Rai. Enjoy a quick stop at Mae Kajan, a bubbling hot spring where you can soak your feet and relax before the day of sightseeing ahead.

Continue onto the White Temple, also known as Wat Rong Khun, an impressive feat of intricate architecture depicting a gleaming white vision of heaven. The temple was inspired by the theme of angels and life after death, and the pool surrounding the building depicts the small river between earth and heaven. After the temple, enjoy a traditional lunch served at a local Thai restaurant.

Following lunch, visit the Black House Museum, known by the locals as Baan Dam Museum, owned by Thawan Duchanee, a well-known Thai artist. Discover this mysterious place that holds over 10,000 items of fascinating wood crafts, silverware, and antiques, collected from Thailand and the rest of the world. Finally, visit the Choui Fong Tea Plantation, famous for its high quality traditional teas cultivated in the agricultural center of Thailand. From the top of a nearby hill, admire the stunning view across the tea fields and soak up the glorious countryside atmosphere before returning to the city.
