Travel Guide - Day Trip in Chiang Mai

This piece (and dozens of other samples I can provide in this vein) was a joy to write because I love writing about the world that I may never get to see! It gave me a chance to explore in my own way.

If you want to get to know Chiang Mai in a fun and quick way, our one day package is for you! You’ll get to try some different foods, see noteworthy cultural places and shows, and, of course, see the elephants. And you can do this all in one day!

We start off our morning activities with a visit to the Mae Sa Elephant Camp. Here, you’ll see an elephant show and get some personal time with the elephants in a natural habitat that is healthy for the big creatures. Mae Sa is working to preserve the Asian elephant, which is becoming threatened in the wild. You may even get a chance to hop on board the elephant’s back! After our elephant visit, we will stop by an orchid farm so you can see how these tropical flowers are cultivated.

We return to your hotel for an hour break around noon, and come to pick you up by 1:30 PM. During the break, put on your appropriate temple clothes and get ready to see the beauty of Doi Suthep – one of Chiang Mai’s most famous temples. Wear something comfortable – there are more than 300 stairs to climb (or you can pay a small fee to take the easy tram up the mountain). You’ll be awed by the amazing architecture, the well-kept grounds, the stunning pagodas and artwork, so make sure to bring your camera. This mountain temple is perfect for taking photos as you can see much of the Chiang Mai area from the temple. After our temple excursion, we’ll take you to your hotel for around an hour to change for our nighttime outing!

Get dressed up and ready for fun, because we are visiting a fun, cultural show for our dinner outing. You are going to love the Northern Thai food while taking in the traditional music and dance of Thailand. The Khantoke show covers several different types of Thai dances with brilliant costumes and music. This show is a wonderful way to wrap up a day full of fun Thai sights.
