Overview
Join this approximately 4-5 hour amazing bike adventure through the southern part of Chiang Mai. Chiang Mai with its enchanting location on the banks of the Ping River is surrounded by mountains, rice fields and lush countryside. The northern city Chiang Mai, known as the ‘Rose of the North’, maintains the allure it has held for travelers for centuries. During the trip, you will learn and see parts of the rich cultural background of Chiang Mai. There are two daily departures to choose from.
Highlights
  • Discover local culture, crafts, and religious traditions in Chiang Mai's countryside
  • Designed to follow quiet roads for easy bike riding
  • Get a glimpse of daily life in the country
  • No extra costs: bike, helmet, lunch, and snacks are included
What to Expect
Make your way to a centrally located meeting point in Chiang Mai, where you’ll be fitted with a bike and helmet. Set out along the Ping River, pedaling with views of mountains, fields, and farms. You’ll pass Wiang Kum Kam, once the capital of the Lanna kingdom, and pause to learn about Thai spirituality at a local Buddhist temple. Next, visit the McKean Rehabilitation Centre, a former lepers’ colony that’s now a refuge for people with physical disabilities. Pedal by an elementary school that serves children from the area’s hill tribes, and see local craftsmen creating pottery using traditional techniques. Make hourly snack stops throughout the ride: Try a sweet at a local bakery, sample market fruits and delicacies, and visit a local restaurant for a light lunch of curried noodles (khao soy kai) that are a Northern Thai classic. The bike tour ends at the original departure point.
