Set off on a songtaew, a local pick-up truck taxi (Known as Rot Daeng in Chiang Mai translated to red car), and drive to Wat Gatekaram for a glimpse into a local neighbourhood. Venture through the small alleyways of this trading community, stopping to see old temples and a local market. Then venture away from the city’s centre to Wiang Kum Kam, a ‘lost civilization’ wiped out by a flood 200 years ago. Hop on a bike to explore the ancient ruins which are scattered about the rural fields. See traces of the past while pedalling slowly through the site. The museum there is a real eye into this lost civilization. Take some time to understand this history with the innovative technology that the museum is now using, the technology used to bring the museum to life is fun and interactive for children and adults alike.
Take a rest and board a Longtail Boat for a scenic ride down the Mae Ping River. Relax and enjoy the views of riverside villages, fishermen and other boats pass by.
Disembark near the city and have lunch at a local Thai restaurant. Then try yet another form of local transport, samlor. These pedal-powered three-wheeled trishaws used to be ubiquitous in Thailand but are slowly being replaced by motorbikes and other motorized vehicles. Move slowly through the streets toward Wat Chedi Luang. Stop to visit this spectacular pagoda, once home to a famous Emerald Buddha.
The day ends with a Tuk-tuk ride to Waroros Market. Mingle among the locals and soak up the sights and smells of the fresh food and Thai spices. Then return to the hotel. (L)
