Chiang Mai Stopover

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 269

The past and present merge in this city rich in traditional heritage and culture. From temples to festivals and from handicrafts to local cuisines, Chiang Mai can’t fail to charm.


Chiang Mai is the principal city in the north surrounded by the highest mountains in the country and here the atmosphere is much more serene than Bangkok. It has a wall surrounding the old part of the city and also has over 300 temples. Chiang Mai, "The Rose of the North", is famous for its history, culture, ancient temples, lush hills, shopping and fascinating tribal people.

During your stay, visit the Wat Phra Singh, built in Northern Thai classical style with its exquisite wood carvings, the Wat Chedi Luang with its Lama style chedi (a conical shaped stupa) and the Wat Suan Dok built in the 14th Century and one of the most famous for Monk studies. After this, head to the Varoros Market, the expansive market where you can buy almost anything. The afternoon is free to explore further, shop etc.

The next morning, travel outside the city to Doi Suthep, a temple built on top of a mountain with amazing views of the surrounding countryside and even Chiang Mai in the distance. After this, visit a hill tribe village and meet the Meo tribe close up with their colourful ethnic outfits and special way of life.

    This boutique hotel located in the heart of Chiang Mai offers a peaceful haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's walking distance from the city's famous night bizarre yet far enough away that the noise of late night revellers won't disturb a good night's sleep. Take one of the hotel's bicycles for a jaunt around the old walled city to visit one of the many temples or all of them if time permits. It's no wonder that this hotel oasis is a first choice for many travellers.

Day 2

Half Day Doi Suthep and Hmong Doi Pui

This tour features a scenic drive through the most historic areas of Chiang Mai, including a pass through the old city walls, city gates and moat. The drive continues into Chiang Mai's tourist attraction area, past the local market, foreign consulates, government buildings and 'Tapae Gate' before continuing to the acclaimed temple Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, home to a holy relic of the Lord Buddha and considered by many to be the most sacred Wat in northern Thailand. Tucked away in the mountains at an elevation of 1,056 meters (3520 feet), the temple is reached using a Naga (a 7- headed dragon head serpent) railing rising along both sides. The temple compound, accessed via 300 stairs, offers a beautiful view of Chiang Mai city and the surrounding countryside. Continue on to visit the primitive Meo Pui village, a local community known for its unique culture and colourful costumes.

Note: Please dress respectfully. No sleeveless shirts, shorts or strapless sandals are allowed when visiting the Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep.

Duration4 Hours
