BRIEF Itinerary
  • Day 1 : Chiang Mai

    Transfer on your own to Bangkok International Airport and fly to Chiang Mai. Upon arrival in Chiang Mai Airport, you will be met by a local guide and transferred to your hotel. In the afternoon, we visit Wat Doi Suthep, tucked away in the mountains at 3,280 feet. The temple is reached by a staircase with 290 steps, flanked by a naga balustrade on either side. The monastery was built by King Gue-Na in 1383. The center is a big Chedi (spired pagoda), which contains relics of Lord Buddha. You then pass the city’s biggest market- Talad Wararot, before going to two important temples: Wat Chedi Luang and Wat Phra  Sing.

  • Day 2 : Mae Hong Son

    Morning flight to Mae Hong Son. Arrival in Mae Hong Son and transfer to your hotel for check-in. After lunch at a local restaurant, visit the Burmese-style temples Wat  Jong  Kham  and  Wat  Jong Klang, located next to a large pond in the southern part of town. Wat Jong Kham was built nearly 200 years ago by Shan people who make up about 50% of the population of Mae Hong Son. Wat Jong Klang houses 100-year-old glass paintings and woodcarvings from Burma, which depict the various lives of Buddha.  Afterwards drive uphill to visit Wat Phra Dhat Doi Kong Moo, which on clear days offers a beautiful view over Mae Hong Son. Dinner at Bai Fern Restaurant.

  • Day 3 : Mae Hong Son

    After breakfast, transfer to an elephant camp for a 1-hour elephant ride through the forest. Then onto a long-tail motor boat for a one hour trip on the Pai River from Ban Huay Dua to the hanging Bridge. Lunch at Golden Pai Resort. In the afternoon, visit the Khaya (Karen) hill tribe village of Ban Nai Soi Padongvillage, home of the Long necked tribe (Giraffe Women), who wear numerous brass rings around their elongated necks. On the return trip to Mae Hong Son, stop at Phu Klon Mud Spa, which is one among three natural mud sources in the world. (Mud body mask, mud facials and other treatments can be arranged optionally and to be paid on spot).

  • Day 4 : Chiang Mai – Depart

    Visit to the morning market. Return to the hotel for breakfast. Drive southwards to visit the  "Meo Micro Wave" hill tribe village located on a steep mountain next to a relay station, from where the village got its name. Transfer to the airport and fly to Bangkok via Chiang Mai.
