    Start your full-day adventure with pickup from your hotel in Chiang Mai at 8:30 AM and travel for half an hour to the north of the city. From the mountain base behind a Karen tribal village, begin the trek into a mixed deciduous forest. During the hike, you will see tropical rain forest trees, some of which are over 500 years old. Pass through the hillside villages, where you will see the locals going about their daily life. While hiking through the forest, spot wild animals such as snakes, squirrels, chameleons, and various species of birds. At 1:00 PM, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant where you will have the opportunity to help your guide cook.

  • Chiang Mai Lunchtime 20 Dish Food Tasting Tour

    3. Chiang Mai Lunchtime 20 Dish Food Tasting Tour

    The tour kicks off at the grounds of Wat Lok Moli Temple in central Chiang Mai. Greet your guide and fellow guests and hop aboard the traditional rod deang truck and take a ride up to the best indoor produce market in Thailand. Your foodie guide will take you on a tour and in between learning about the ingredients that go into Northern Thai cuisine, you'll snack on plenty of different Northern Thai classics. Expect things like herbal sai oua sausage, pork crackling with a nam prik num dipping sauce, deep-fried tofu and traditional Thai-style crispy crepes. Once you've had your fill, it's back onboard for the short journey to one of Chiang Mai's most fascinating districts. The city's most famous dish is khao soi, a fragrant coconut curry topped with crispy noodles, shallots and lime. Head to a tucked away little joint that serves the very best in town. The truck leaves at this point and ...

    We had a great day with our guide (Mouie?) today. She is very knowledgeable about the history of food in Thailand and enthusiastic in her delivery. There is a lot of food to eat in 4 hours, but you can choose to eat as little or much as you like. I recommend doing this tour at the beginning of your vacation if you can. It may make you more aware of the food possibilities during the rest of your vacation (including eating worms and insects if you choose to do so!)

  • Chiang Rai: Full-Day Customizable Private Tour

    4. Chiang Rai: Full-Day Customizable Private Tour

    Start with pickup from your hotel and meet your passionate tour guide who will impart tidbits of history and culture on a full-day exploration of Chiang Rai. Enjoy a private tour that allows you to choose the sights and activities you want to experience, without wasting time on those you’d rather skip. Although Chiang Rai is usually overlooked in favor of its sister city Chiang Mai, dig a little deeper and discover a charming town rich in arts and culture. Originally the capital of the Mengrai Dynasty, the city was founded in the late 1200s and retains many of its Lanna influences in architecture, language, and cuisine. Simply indicate the attractions you want to see so that your guide has several options to craft the best schedule for you based on geography and diversity. If you don’t know where to start, a visit to the famous White and Blue Temples is strongly recommended. These are...

    My guide (Mr Parnatee) was fantastic! He knew so much at every stop, and was very attentive to all of my questions and requests for the tour. I had an amazing time in Chiang Rai, and I strongly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a one day trip.

  • Chiang Mai: Private Tuk Tuk Tour of City Temples With Pickup

    5. Chiang Mai: Private Tuk Tuk Tour of City Temples With Pickup

    Explore Chiang Mai’s more popular temples with a Tuk Tuk and take a stroll through the eclectic and colorful Warorot Street Market in this half-day tour. The first stop will be Wat Chedi Luang. Known as the “Temple of the Big Stupa”, this 700+-year-old temple, famous for its Lanna-inspired designs, was once the home of the much-revered Emerald Buddha statue. Take a visit there today and you'll see a replica version which was a donation from the Thai king.  Pass by the 3 Kings Monument, a shrine named after the three founders of Chiang Mai, before moving on to Wat Phra Singh temple. One of the more venerated temples in Chiang Mai, Wat Phra Singh was built in the 14th century and is famous for its northern Thai designs and impeccable gardens. Next, visit the Tha Phae Gate. A famous landmark for locals and visitors alike, it was once part of a high-bricked defensive wall that surrounded ...
