Welcome to Chiang Mai, renown by locals as the 'Rose of the North', for its beauty and charm. Hotel transfer will be your arrangement.

Day 2
Nov. 8th Mountian Doi Suthep and Yi Peng Festival

After breakfast in your hotel, head for Doi Suthep Mountain, where you will visit one of the most sacred temples in Northern Thailand - Wat Phra That (founded in 1383 AD). After climbing up 309 steps, you will be rewarded with a superb panoramic view of Chiang Mai City!

Return to Chiang Mai and take a rickshaw ride through its busy streets and quiet alleys. Sample various delicacies, including Northern Thai-style noodle soup, stir-fries, pad Thai (stir-fried Thai noodles), khao man gai (chicken rice), khao soi (a Burmese-influenced noodle dish), fresh fruits, and a variety of Thai desserts. Learn about Chiang Mai's local street food by touring food stalls and shophouses, especially around the Three Kings Monument area.

Day 4
Nov. 10th Elephant Jungle Sanctuary

Chiang Mai is definitely the best place to observe and interact with the Asian elephants! We specifically choose this Elephant Jungle Sanctuary (over 30 formerly mistreated elephants are now being well taken care of) as it is a joint program between members of the Karen hill-tribes and Chiang Mai locals since 2014.

Depart at around 07:00am, the morning you will experience Karen hill tribe culture, natural scenery while they interact with elephants, including feeding, bathing, brushing and interacting with them. There will be numerous photography opportunities. Afterwards you will be served with local snacks and seasonal fresh fruits for your lunch.
