If you're tired of those chaotic scenes and daily hustle-bustle while in Thailand, a trip to the idyllic Mae Ping River is all you need. Get away from city life and spend your day interacting with monks, feasting on the local cuisine, sailing along cool waters and exploring the ever-changing river scenery as you pass by traditional teak houses, quaint villages and local farming communities. The river cruise is sure to be a highlight of your adventure, but this Mae Ping River tour also introduces you to the local markets and beautiful temples. Savor the smell of fresh lemongrass and feast on seasonal fresh fruits while you're at it.

Our Chiang Mai city tour adventure will begin by exploring the Warorot Market, one of the largest markets in Chiang Mai. Almost everything is for sale here from food to clothing to hill tribe crafts. At the market, you'll have plenty of time to taste and sample local specialties before moving on to the Ton Lam Yai Flower Market, overflowing with colourful, fresh cut flowers.

Next, we’ll take a songthaew to Wat Chai Mongkol, a magnificent temple that was built on the banks of the Mae Ping River. Take part in a local Buddhist practice by offering alms to monks and learning about other interesting religious traditions.

Then it’s time to take a cruise up the Mae Ping River, one of the main rivers in northern Thailand and the lifeline of Chiang Mai. Our Mae Ping River cruise will reveal villages and rural life played out on the river shores, and your guide will offer insight into local livelihood and history throughout the journey.

Next on our Chiang Mai tour we'll enjoy a sumptuous Khao Soi lunch at a local farmer’s house. This noodle dish is often made with chicken or beef, served over Chinese egg noodles, and garnished with shallots, cilantro, pickled mustard greens, fried whole chilies, and a squeeze of lime juice. It's totally delicious, and a must-try food in Chiang Mai!

After lunch, we'll visit a garden to learn about local vegetables, herbs, and the medicinal properties of plants, before returning to Chiang Mai by cruise back. This is where our Chiang Mai city tour will come to an end, and you're free to continue exploring Chiang Mai at your leisure.
