See the palace, garden, and renowned temples of Chiang Mai during this full-day guided tour. Enjoy some of the city's most popular sights, a buffet lunch, and a dinner cruise along Mae Ping River.
Your excursion begins on the mountain of Doi Sethup with a trek to Doi Pui, a mountainside Hmong tribal village. Acquaint yourself with the local tribe and its culture as villagers offer locally made wares for sale and still wear traditional Hmong clothing with colorful and intricate fabric.
Built in the early 1960s, the winter retreat of Thailand's royal family, Bhuping Palace, is your next stop. The impressive residence is closed to the public when its owners are in town, but the fragrant rose gardens are well worth a visit. Your guide then takes you to Chiang Mai's most important Buddhist temple, Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep. Here, on the mountain the temple was named after, climb 300 steps to admire one of the best views of the city.
Back in Chiang Mai, sit down for a filling Thai- and Western-style buffet lunch before you visit Roi An Phan Yang—an exhibition house where local artisans display masterfully carved wooden objects. Board a horse cart or tram for a personalized tour around Wiang Kum Kan, the ancient capital of King Mangrai.
Return to your hotel and rest for a few hours before your dinner cruise on the Mae Ping River. Appreciate the sights of surrounding farms and an intimate setting as you cruise past the river's quiet banks.
