 DAY 2 Full Day Chiang Mai Highlights and Hill Tribes Tour with Lunch

Today after breakfast, Doi Suthep is Chiang Mai’s most famous temple and also its most prominent as it sits at 1685 meters on a small sub peak of Doi Pui mountain. Wat Phra That Doi Suthep (the temple’s full name) offers stunning views of Chiang Mai and beyond. Although the temple itself is remarkable, visitors who have no or little interest in in this kind of site will appreciate the view from the mountain as it is well worth the trip alone. Once the visit to Doi Suthep over, we will proceed back down via the winding road and on to the Five hill tribe exhibition village at Baan Tong Luang. Here, you will meet members of the Karen Long Neck (Padaung) tribe as well as members of the Akha and Lahu communities among others who reside at this village. Following a leisurely lunch break, the option will be offered to visit The Tiger Kingdom, where you will be able to play with adult tigers or tiger cubs. You will then be driven to the Thai Orchid and Butterfly Farm as well as the San Kamheang area to observe manufactures of famous Thai and Chiang Mai products such as Celadon ceramics, silk items, paper umbrellas and many more before driving you back to your hotel in Chiang Mai.
