Chiang Rai Sightseeing by Rickshaw incl. Lunch (City)
- Half Day
You will be picked up at 08:30. The Northern Thai city of Chiang Rai is steeped in tradition. There's no better way to experience its cultural highlights than with a classical rickshaw ride through the ancient streets.

The day starts at the King Mengrai Monument. The monument pays tribute to the ruler who founded Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai and built the foundations of the Lanna Kingdom. From here, climb aboard a three-wheeled rickshaw, or 'samlor'. This classic vehicle is the perfect way to explore Chiang Rai’s quiet streets, traveling at a slower pace and soaking up the sights and sounds.

After a 15-minute ride, stop at the local market for a visit. Browse the stalls piled high with fresh produce, joining the locals as they chat with stall owners and bargain for the best prices.

Continue by samlor to the Wat Phra Kaew temple, home to a beautiful brass and copper Buddha. Then it’s onwards to the Hilltribe Museum, which is operated by the Population & Community Development Association. Explore the impressive displays and gain wonderful insight into the colourful ethnic communities that live in the hills surrounding Chiang Rai. Following this, continue by road for a visit to the stunning white temple of Wat Rong Khun with its unusual, and controversial, kanok architecture.

Following this introduction to Chiang Rai, stop for lunch at Chivit Thammada. Enjoy fabulous views of the Kok River while dining on traditional Thai dishes. (L)
