Itinerary
Get up close and personal with Chiang Mai's Buddhist way of life on this cultural Chiang Mai tour for adventurers and soul seekers.
Start your Chiang Mai tour with a scenic drive in a songthaew - an iconic public bus. As you make your way down Suthep Road, stop by Kad Ton Payom, a flea market well known for its northern Thai cuisine. Afterwards, offer alms to monks to ‘make merit’, then enjoy a traditional style Chiang Mai breakfast.
Next we'll make our way to Wat U-Mong, a 600-year-old temple famed for its large painted pagoda and underground tunnel. Soak up the peaceful atmosphere and perhaps take the opportunity to talk with the abbot about Buddhism and Dharma.
From there, our Chiang Mai tour will pay a visit Wat Suan Dok temple, where you can mingle with monks and learn about their way of life. Take some time out to learn basic meditation, and cap the day off by making an offering to the Sangkha.

Additional Information
Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. As this trip visits religious sites, please ensure your knees and shoulders are covered.
