Our guide pick up you from your hotel in Chiang Mai town then proceed to historical temple in Chiang Mai.

First, we visit Wat Chedi Luang. Wat Chedi Luang temple is home to Chiang Mai’s largest Buddhist chedi built featuring 98 meters tall and 54 meters in diameter. The construction of the orginal chedi was completed in 1481 during the reign of King Mengrai. But the current Chedi Luang is a restoration according to the deconstruction of the chedi in 1545 due to an earthquake. The ordination hall located in the front is also an example of beautiful Lanna architecture with its serpents are probably one of the most remembered elements.

Arriving at Wat Phra Sing. Located on Sam Lan Road, Wat Phra Sing’s Wihan Lai Kham is home to Phra Phutthasihing, Chiang Mai’s most sacred, Chiang sean-style Buddha image. After exploring the temple then we view the surroundings of Wat Phra Sing then procced to Wat Umong.

Arriving at Wat Umong. This old temple established in 1296 during the reign of King Mengrai is now widely known as a meditation center devout Buddhists from around the world visit to practice amid its peaceful atmosphere and minimalism structures.

We set for lunch at Keaw Heun Khom restaurant. After lunch we proceed to Wat Phrathat Doi Suthap.

Viewing the Surroundings at Wat Phrathat Doi Suthap. Perhaps the most famous and important temple in Chiang Mai every visitor must pay a visit. On top of Doi Suthep Hill, finds the revered golden Phra that (chedi) of Wat Phra That Doi Suthep rises against the sunlight. The temple was built in 1383 to enshrine Buddha’s relics.

Return back to visit Wat Lok Moli. Arriving at Wat Lok Moli. Is a Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand? The ashes of several members of the Mengrai dynasty were placed in this temple.

Until the demise of their dynasty, the Mengrai royal family took the responsibility for maintaining the temple. The brickwork of the large chedi is left mostly bare, this in contrast to the, often recently, stuccoed chedis of other temples in Chiang Mai. Of note are the finely sculptured Nagas and wooden temple façade. The temple is aligned along a north-south axis – most Buddhist temples are orientated towards the East, towards the rising sun.

After exploring then we return back to the hotel.

- What To Expect

Chiang Mai is the hub of Northern Thailand and the Capital City of the Province of this name. With a population of over 170,000 in the city proper it is Thailand's fifth-largest city. Located on a plain at an elevation of 316 m, surrounded by mountains and lush countryside, it is much greener and quieter than the capital, and has a cosmopolitan air and a significant expat population, factors which have led many from Bangkok to settle permanently in this "Rose of the North".
