Lush green hills overlook a city thriving with culture and history. So board a songthaew with your private guide and uncover Chiang Mai’s redolent mix of old and new.
Pass crumbling city walls and ancient gates, explore eclectic markets that throb with life and laughter, marvel at the colonial relics and the majestic consulate buildings, and take in the soothing atmosphere of the northern capital.
Slowly the city rescinds and you’re in the mountains. Drive up to Doi Suthep mountain and the 14th century Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Feel the spirituality and enjoy the fantastic panoramic view over the city. Breathe deeply and enjoy the serenity of ancient Wat Jed Yod, with its seven spires stupa, and then Wat Suan Dok.
Now back down again, into old Chiang Mai for some street food. Keep exploring, keep discovering, and keep finding more on a day with your local guide.
