After hotel pickup in the morning, your historical city tour starts as you receive your comfortable city bike, suitable for the terrain. The trip takes around 4 hours and covers the more interesting local Temples and historical sites that once were the heart of Chiang Mai. Food markets and local eateries carry you through the journey. Your guide's local knowledge allows you to dodge the heavy traffic routes and duck in and out of small lanes to experience the charm of Chiang Mai, which lies beneath the tree line. Strengthened with local cuisine to keep your legs moving, your tour ends at the centrally located bike shop in the old city. Hotel return is then provided.

We depart from your hotel to the southern area, which takes about a thirty minute drive. First, we visit the Phra That Doi Kham Temple, which means “Temple of Golden Mountain”. The Temple was built in B.E.1230 and is located on top of a mountain overlooking Chiang Mai city. The 17 metre high Sitting Buddha image on the hill top is visible from miles away. Then, we continue to visit the Royal Park Rajapruek. It is one of the most popular agro-tourism places of Chiang Mai and is counted as the centre of Agricultural research. You will discover countless number of plants and varied kinds of flowers from all over the world.

Begin with pickup at your hotel then we meet a small group of fellow foodies.
We follow a route that will take you to two evening markets, where you’ll try a wide variety of dishes, from Khanom Jiin Chinese noodles to northern Thai specialties, coconut dumplings, stewed pork and sweets. This is the perfect time to learn some basic phrases with help from a local, then practice ordering dishes in Thai. The tour includes a leaflet that explains the most popular street food dishes, so you can keep exploring the Thai markets on your own.
With a small group and an experienced guide, you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about unfamiliar foods, ingredients and how to eat some of Thailand’s more exotic dishes. After you’ve tasted your way through both markets, hop a Songthaew for the return trip to your hotel where your tour concludes.
