Experience the exotic culture and explore the quieter lanes and surrounding areas of this fascinating city riding pillion on your stylish Vespa. From the iconic Tha Phae Gate, you ride through a labyrinth of narrow lanes and winding, historic streets in the old city before the scenery opens up around us on picturesque forest lined roads. You head up to the top of the hill, where you reach a very famous and prominent temple, whose origins date back to the 7th century. Perched on the top, there is a serene Buddha statue that overlooks the beautiful countryside and you can absorb the culture and surroundings as we take in these incredible city and mountain views. It's back on the Vespas for an exhilarating ride downhill to an art & craft village in a cool garden setting. There's a real community feel and a bohemian, laid back vibe where you mix with the hip and interesting locals and artisans. Next up, it's a change of pace as you experience the bustle of Chiang Mai's largest and most famous market where we can try the exotic local produce and fully embrace the chaotic Thai market experience and customs. Finally, it's on to one of Thailand's most stunning temples which had a spectacular makeover at the turn of this century by local silversmiths. It's a truly incredible sight and a great photo opportunity where you finish your adventure by enjoying a light local lunch.
