The Itinerary in Detail
Welcome to Chiang Mai, renowned among locals as 'Rose of the North' for its beauty and charm. Hotel transfers are by your own arrangement.
After breakfast, head for Doi Suthep Mountain, where you will visit one of the most sacred temples in Northern Thailand — Wat Phra That. Continue to Wat Suan Dok, just outside the ancient city walls of Chiang Mai. Return to Chiang Mai and take a rickshaw ride through its busy streets and quiet alleys.
In late afternoon, you will be taken to the Yi Peng Festival Celebration and Sky Lantern Release venue at Chiang Mai Flower Field (Chiang Mai CAD) and enjoy Premium access to your seats.
Asia Highlights Exclusive Premium Experience
— Round-trip private transfers between your hotel and the event venue, maximizing your time during the busiest time of the lantern festival
— 2 sky lanterns for each traveler
— Buffet dinner at the 'special food zone' (enjoy Thai cuisine, soft drinks, juice, and water)
Today, you can get up late and relax in the morning.
In late afternoon, your private guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel and transfer to our selected restaurant.
First, learn how to design and make a Thai floating lantern with traditional materials. Then make your own lantern or make the lantern together with your partner or loved one(s). Take a break to try some delicious northern Thai dishes while enjoying the view of a sunset over a river.
Once it is dark, release your floating lantern onto the river and don't forget to make a wish!
In the evening, your guide will lead you to see the festival parade near Tha Phae Gate. Enjoy the festival celebrations with the locals.
Situated in a pristine and picturesque valley, about 1½ hours' drive from Chiang Mai city, Elephant Rescue Park is a paradise for homeless elephants. It provides a safe, loving, and secure environment for all the elephants that go there. Take a half-day Memorable Caring Experience there. You'll learn a lot about elephants and interact with them — you can feed them, walk with them, hug them, and bathe them.
After the program, have lunch at the park. Your private guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel at around 2 p.m.
