This amazingly spiritual tour of Chiang Mai begins early in the morning with a scenic drive in the iconic public bus, the songthaew, towards a local market famous for its Northern Thai cuisine. At Kad Ton Payom you will enjoy a lovely local breakfast, and ‘make merit’ with monks through the offering of alms.

From the market, it is time to really give your mind and soul, as we venture into the local world of Buddhism, with our first stop at the famous Wat U-Mong. This temple is over 600 years old, and famous for its painted pagoda and underground tunnel. Aside from the history, it also forms an extremely peaceful spot to take in the serenity, and you will also have the opportunity to chat with the temple’s leaders about Buddhism and Dharma.

From here, it is on to Wat Suan Dok temple, where we will spend time with the local monks, learning about their way of life and the intricacies of this peaceful religion. You will have the opportunity to learn some of the basics of meditation, and finish the day with a full soul as you make an offering to the Sangkha.

“This was the absolute highlight of my 5 days in Chiang Mai. I was lucky enough to be the only person booked on this experience so could really talk with my guide, Thongbang, who was absolutely lovely and clearly had a passion for educating people about Buddhism. We went to markets and one particular temple where there were no tourists at all so I truly got to see and experience things I just wouldn't have without Urban Adventures. LOVED it!”
