We ascend to 1,069 metres without breaking a sweat on a half day tour that takes you to the mountaintop Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Temple and Phu Ping Palace. An early start means we avoid the crowds that congregate around midday. Exploring with a guide means you will also benefit from important social and historical context.
More commonly referred to as just "Doi Suthep" for the Mountain it sits on, the Temple is a gorgeous example of Buddhist grandeur and gives insights into the Thai culture. From the parking lot, you can reach the Temple gates either by climbing 306 steps on foot or by riding a cable car to the top. If you opt to go on foot, then you will begin up the intricately carved Naga Serpent Staircase, which is flanked on either side by enormous, colourful serpent carvings that snake down the mountain.
Duration: 4 Hrs
Head along to the food market for a delicious half day tour discovering flavourful, fragrant Thai street food. Your guide will explain how to navigate a Thai food market, making this tour an excellent introduction to a street food focussed holiday. Get to know some lesser known Thai snacks on this tour and find places where there are no crowds of tourists as the food stalls mostly cater to local tastes.
Start Time: 19:00pm
Duration: 3 Hrs
Experience one of the most famous northern foods in Chiang Mai, the Khanthoke dinner with a three hour dinner and show. During this meal, you will sit on the floor and share a succession of tasty dishes accompanied with sticky rice. This food is typical fare for Thai people living in the northern parts of the country. As you eat these small bowl dishes, local dancers dressed in traditional clothing will entertain you with the Sword Dance, Candle Dance, Fingernail Dance and The Rumwong, where you will be invited to participate. After the dinner, there will be a special hill tribe show featuring the various hill tribes of Northern Thailand. This is an excellent opportunity to see a number of tribes in rotation and to note the differences in appearance and costume.
