ITINERARY

We’ll kick off your Chiang Mai handicraft tour the most local way that we know; by riding on local transport! In Chiang Mai, the public transit system is a collection of red flatbed trucks (called Songthaew) that ride around town.  We’ll ride for 45 minutes to Baan Ontai Village, a close-knit community in the Sankhamphaeng district 

Your artisan experience begins at Fah Mai Handloom, where you’ll meet friendly local artisans and learn the basics of bamboo weaving. You will also have an opportunity to have a go at making something yourself under the expert guidance of one of the weavers.

Next, we’ll check out the processes behind cotton weaving from a local expert and admire their finished products before making our way to Wat Chiang Saen, a Chinese Pottery workshop that showcases the work of local artists. 

It’s time for an injection of culture and history!  We will stop at the historic temple of Wat Chiang Saen which originated from the Lanna kingdom, dating back 600 years.  The area is surrounded by ancient kiln sites and lush forest.

Holy water is next with a visit to the natural springs that locals believe can heal the sick.

Then we’re off to an organic farm where we will enjoy a delicious Thai lunch using ingredients sourced from the surrounding area. 

After that, we’ll say goodbye to some of the lovely people we have met today and return to our trusty car or Songthaew for the 45-minute return journey to Chiangmai City where your tour will end.  Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay.
