Description

Today you can explore the sights in and around Chiangmai City.


A Very Flexible Day -

Specific interests can be discussed with your Guide, but could include some of The City's Cultural & Historical Sights as well as an opportunity to visit some of Chiangmai’s renowned Local Handicrafts & Traditional Craft villages.  (and we can visit as much as you wish in the time available!!).


On the Cultural & Historical side we could visit the Chiang Mai City Arts and Cultural Centre.

From here we continue to Wat Phra Singh, Chiangmai City’s most important Temple.

Constructed in the 14th Century, of particular interests here is the Lai Kham Viharn which houses the most venerated Buddha Image in Northern Thailand (after which the Temple is named) and some well preserved murals, also the beautifully architechtured Hor Tham Scripture Hall.

We then visit nearby Wat Chedi Luang, once home to the Emerald Buddha (Now in the Grand Place in Bangkok).

The Temple, originally built over 600 years ago, is dominated by it’s massive Chedi, which was partially destroyed by an earthquake in the mid 1500’s. Now, the restoration gives an impressive view of this magnificent Temple.

Also a visit to Wat Chiang Man.

The City’s oldest Temple built by Chiangmai’s Founder – King Mengrai in 1296, in the former Palace Grounds. Of note are the Elephant Buttress’s around Chedi, which are specific to this particular period


Chiangmai is Thailand’s center for various Local Handicrafts, Craft villages and Shopping.

 Among some of the activities we could see are: Silk & Cotton Weaving; Silver working, Teak-wood carving; Laquerware production; Celadon Ceramics; the Earthenware Pottery Village at Muang Khung and a village community producing Sa-paper.

(Again Specific aspects of your Sightseeing, etc. can be discussed with your Guide and we can visit as much as you wish in the time available!!).



While you could book this Program as it is, we would, more usually, incorporate this into an overall Private Program for your Clients, tailored directly to their needs.

Wonderful Trip to Southeast Asia!

By: smiller


Reviewed on: 29 Jun 2015

We just returned from an amazing 2 week long trip to Southeast Asia to include Thailand and Cambodia. Monika at Sixth Star travel helped with every step of the way--from air fare and schedules to hotels to events. If I had questions or changes, Monika was quick to respond and made sure the trip was as I wanted it. All of the details were covered, and we had a stress free phenomenal vacation that was memorable for everyone! I would highly recommend Monika and sixth star to my friends and family-- I felt like I was in good hands all the way, and knew that if I had an issue, Monika would be there to help!

Unfortunate Experience

By: Jeanne


Reviewed on: 10 Dec 2017

Unfortunately, our guide, while a lovely person, seemed totally out of his depth in Bangkok. His normal territory is Chiang Mai and Chiang Rei. I believe there must have been some issue with the normal Bangkok guide(s) and our guide was sent by the company to Bangkok to stand in for another who was unable to guide our group. The owner should probably have been the stand-in!

Fabulous

We used Wanna tours to guide us through Siem Reap Cambodia and Chiang Mei Thailand. A great guide and driver were furnished in each location. They were very helpful and made our trip.
