Spend your day with city sightseeing tour to deeply understand the history and the daily life of Northern people by exploring all the ancients and beautiful temples. Passing down the market to get all the authentic street food you would hardly find once away from Thailand. You are suggested to spend the day to 7 different Temples: Wat Suan Dok, Wat Chiang Mun, Wat Phra Singh, Wat Chedi Luang, Wat U-Mong, Wat Chet then Yod Entrer the ancient Chiang Mai’s City walls to visit The Art and Cultural Centre Chiang Mai.
After a day in Chiang Mai, why not combine a bit of historical sightseeing with some high adrenaline jungle ATV trekking and elephant riding? Spend some time watching the gentle giants of Dao Elephant Camp. Trek through the nearby jungle atop one of this iconic Thai animals and learn about their lives on this protected area. Complete your day with the exciting bamboo rafting trip along the scenic Ping River, and a stop at a typical orchid farm in nearby Mae Sa.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast before driving to beautiful Wat Rong Khun (white temple) near Chiang Rai. Unlike most centuries-old Buddhist temples in Thailand, this temple’s construction began in 1997 and isn’t expected to be completed until 2070. This is a pretty good place for a lot of photography opportunities.
Next, head to the Mae Ka Chan hot springs, with a lunch stop along the way. Located at a rest stop between Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, the three pools of these hot springs are a great place to ease sore muscles or relax. Enjoy a foot massage fish-spa style – while dozens of tiny fish nibble dead skin from your feet — or purchase quail eggs to cook in the boiling waters as you soak!
