After lunch at a local restaurant, cruise through Bangkok's canals, a lively network of waterways teeming with commercial barges and whistling passenger vessels.

Chiang Mai | Amid Temples

Participate in the fascinating local customs of Chiang Mai on a half-day guided tour of the city’s markets, lanes and sacred complexes. Your guide collects and takes you to Warorot Market, one of Chiang Mai's busiest indoor marketplaces. Founded by royalty more than a century ago, it is the best place in the city to find typical Northern Thai food and clothing. From here, take a rickshaw ride along famous Tapae Road, through ancient city walls. Continue along Rajdamnern Road to Wat Phra Singh, where you visit the ancient complex that holds the sacred Phra Buddha Singh image. Move on to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, set on a mountain 3,500 feet above sea level. It is reached by a climb of 300 steps or by a tram. Legend says the temple, considered the most important in Chiang Mai, was built after a bone of Buddha was carried up the mountain on the back of a white elephant.
