Day 1: Chiang Mai – Doi Saket ±50km
The excursion starts at 09:00am from our office Baan Nai Fan 1, Chiang Mai.
The first surprise awaits us only 30 minutes away. Together with our bicycles we board a boat at the Ping River that brings us to the northern part of Chiang Mai. Here we get back on dry land at a farmhouse, where we have fruit juice, before continuing our cycling trip. The first day brings us to the country side of Chiang Mai province and we see different kinds of agricultural activities.
The route goes along the rice fields, passing by beautiful temples. Throughout the whole day we enjoy the ever changing scenery. Before we arrive at our resort, we pass the Mae Kuang Dam, take a short break, and enjoy the beautiful view.
Day 2: Doi Saket – San Kamphaeng ±50km
On the second day we cycle from Doi Saket to San Kamphaeng . Along the way we visit a Chinese cemetery and Doi Saket temple, located at the top of the hill. This temple is the social centre of the village and has activities almost all the time. The trip continues over country roads and we make a stop at the San Kamphaeng hotsprings where we also have lunch. After lunch, we continue our journey through the rice fields and small villages, where most of the people work with wood and metal handicrafts. Of course we stop to take some pictures, and provide you with more information.
At night we stay in a Lanna style resort, where you can get a real Thai massage at a reasonable price.
Day 3: San Kamphaeng – Chiang Mai ±50km
Day 3 and the last day of Chiang Mai Treasures, we cycle from San Kamphaeng through Bo Sang back to Chiang Mai.
