Itinerary in Detail
Feel the heat wave once you land in Bangkok. Meet up with your private tour guide whose first word might be Sawadee-ka (Hello in Thai).
Transfer to your hotel in a private car and free at leisure for the rest of today.
Experience the morning chanting ritual at historical Wat Pho, which is one of the oldest temples in Bangkok. Take a tuk tuk ride via Pak Khlong Talat flower market to the magnificent Grand Palace. Continue with a long-tail boat ride along the ancient canals of Thonburi to get a flavor of the local life. Stop at the iconic Wat Arun, which was once the grand royal temple of King Rama II.
After lunch at a local restaurant, you will cross the Chao Phraya River and be driven to Chinatown for a glance at Old Bangkok.
After breakfast, drive for about an hour southwest of Bangkok to visit Maeklong Railway Market, which is a traditional Thai market selling food including fresh fruit and vegetables. What makes it special is that the market is located on a train line where, a few times a day, the train runs directly through the market. Later, drive for another 20 minutes to visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. It is the most popular floating market in Thailand and is great for photo opportunities, food, and giving you an insight into a bygone way of life.
You will be on the way to the airport in the afternoon. After 2 hours of driving (up to 3 hours depending on the traffic), you will board the flight to Chiang Mai. Arrive in Chiang Mai at night. Transfer to hotel and enjoy a restful night.
Time just kinda slows down in Chiang Mai. Ease your mind with a late morning breakfast at your hotel. Your tour guide will pick you up at around 1000am.
Visit the three primary shrines inside Chiang Mai Old Town, namely Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Phra Signh and Wat Lok Molee, each expresses different aspects of Lanna aesthetics.
Learn How to Make Thai Dishes from a Local Family
In the afternoon, visit a local family' the host will welcome you and walk you through her organic vegetable garden to collect the different kinds of herbs and vegetables that will be used in the variety of Thai food that you will be preparing. You will learn how to make some of the best home-cooked dishes that you can easily cook for your family when you return home. During the class, in addition to cooking, you will also sample dishes from the north, northeast, and central regions of Thailand.
In the early morning at 0600am, you will be sitting by the roadside waiting for monks on their daily alms collection. As a must-do for any Thailand trips to Chiang Mai, Alms-Offering is both important for the monks and the participants: by offering the freshly cooked rice to monks who only consume two meals a day is good karma archived for the givers.
Later visit the famous Doi Suthep. Despite the stunning natural beauty, the main reason many visitors go to Doi Suthep Mountain is to visit Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Built in 1382, Wat Phra That Doi Suthep is one of the most holy Buddhist sites in Thailand. Many Thai people go on a pilgrimage there, especially during the Buddhist holidays. Later, return to downtown Chiang Mai and visit Wat Chedi Luang. It is one of the six most important temples in Chiang Mai. It attracts a lot of Thai people who worship there each year as it was once the home of the Emerald Buddha.
