Full description

Immerse yourself in local sights, sounds, and flavors on this guided trip around an important commercial area of Chiang Mai’s old days, located along the Ping River. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and learn about Thai life as you visit a temple, market, and more, admission fees included.

First, stop to explore Wat Ket Karam, a temple built in 1482 with zodiac signs for those born in the year of the dog. Visit the museum to see many different artifacts and historical records, such as antique items and old photos.

Taking just a few steps from the temple, you’ll see a charming combination of building architecture featuring Lanna, Chinese, and Western influences. Stop at a famous local dessert shop to try authentic sweets that have been around for more than 30 years.

Walk across the Ping River to the hustle and bustle of Warorot Market, where you can find authentic Thai products. Get a real idea of how it feels to shop like a local.

Later, hop on a traditional trishaw, a symbol of Chiang Mai's way of life. Ride along Thapae road, one of the most famous commercial areas of Chiang Mai’s past. With the open views of the trishaw, enjoy the colorful, quaint, and bustling streets.

Hop off at the Three King Monument, located in the old city center where many festivals and events have taken place. Before heading back to your accommodation for drop-off, fill your stomach during lunch at a local restaurant.
