Head to the most significant temple in Chiang Mai, the 600 year-old Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. Inside you will find the copper-plated Chedi that is topped by a five-tier gold parasol, which contains relics of the Lord Buddha. From the terrace you have panoramic views of the entire city. Once you get there, that final climb up the 306 steps of the Naga staircase will seem worth it! DEPARTS: Daily DURATION: 5 hours BAAN HONGNUAL COOKERY SCHOOL When cooking, various local spices that enhance your health and physical well being are used as ingredients. The school’s aim is to teach you how to cook delicious Thai food perfectly and to help preserve this culinary art. Start by visiting a local market to learn how to choose produce, whilst at the same time learning about the herbs and spices used in Thai cooking. Proceed to the school for your cooking class followed by lunch. DEPARTS: Daily DURATION: 7 hours CHIANG RAI & THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE Drive through beautiful Northern scenery, with a stop at the Hot Springs at Mae Kajan. Visit the famous Golden Triangle, where the borders of Thailand, Burma and Laos meet at the confluence of the Ruak and Mekong Rivers. Continue on to the border town of Mae Sai, where just across the bridge lies the Burmese town of Tachilek. Enjoy lunch and shop for some Burmese souvenirs. On the way back to Chiang Mai, visit an Akha and a Yao hilltribe village. DEPARTS: Daily DURATION: 12 hours EVENING KHANTOKE DINNER & SHOW The food in this region is very different to the rest of the country. Traditionally Northern families sit and eat around a ‘Khantoke’, a small circular table, sitting on the floor. On this tour enjoy a meal of several Northern dishes, along with a very graceful show of Northern Thai dancing, including the fingernail dance and the ‘Ramwong’, where you will be invited to participate as well as a special show featuring dances from the various hill tribes.
