Offered by TakeMeTour - English spoken guide or local expertenglish spoken guide

We'll start at White Temple, then let's have Northern Thai-style lunch at a local's favorite restaurant. After that, we'll go to Doi Tung Development Project, an area aimed to preserve nature and better the lives of local hill tribes. From flower garden to Tree Top Walk and visiting Akha people, Doi Tung Development Project is a great place to enjoy nature and learn about a local way of life.


Meet up at hotel lobby (in Chiang Mai area)

Let's take a break the way locals do at Mae Kajan Hot Spring. We'll relax at the hot spring for about 20 minutes before continuing to Chiang Rai.

Our first stop in Chiang Rai is White Temple.
White Temple is called Wat Rong Khun in Thai and it's considered the masterpiece of Chiang Rai-born National Artist Chalermchai Kositpipat.
The temple is entirely painted in white to symbolize the Buddha's purity.

Have lunch at Salungkham.
Salungkham serves up two sets of LocalTable menus, so take your pick. Either way, you're guaranteed delicious authentic Northern Thai tastes.

Walk above the trees along Doi Tung Tree Top Walk, which is a 300 meter long wooden suspension bridge hanging 30 meters above the ground. Stroll in Doi Tung Mae Fah Luang Garden and enjoy the colors of the flowers. These are all the result of the reforestation project.

Go to Doi Tung Royal Villa, which was once the late Princess Mother's residence. (Princess Mother was King Rama IX's mother.)
Doi Tung Royal Villa beautifully blends Lanna (Northern Thai) and Swiss architectural styles. This was where Princess Mother spent most of her time improving the lives of local Akha people and restoring the forest.

Visit Akha hill tribe people who migrated from China to live in Doi Tung area. We'll about their way of life before returning to Chiang Mai.

Drop you off at your hotel in Chiang Mai.
