Cycling in Chiang Mai
Colors of Chiang Mai bicycle tour is a 4-5 hour amazing outdoor adventure through the southern part of Chiang Mai.
The northern city Chiang Mai, known as the ‘Rose of the North’, maintains the allure it has held for travelers for centuries. During the trip, participants will learn and see parts of the rich cultural background of Chiang Mai, Thailand while riding a bike .
The route takes us on quiet and green meandering roads, passing the historic settlement Wiang Kum Kam, founded in 1286 by King Mengrai. It once was the capital of the Lanna Empire for a period of only 10 years. You will be able to admire temples and ruins dating back hundreds of years.
Our next stop on the Chiang Mai bicycle tour is at an elementary school, mostly attended by hilltribe children. The ancient Lanna Empire produced some of the finest ceramics ever to have been made. These days the northern region still is the major center of Thailand’s pottery industry. At a small pottery, we will watch the craftsmen make different shapes of pottery by hand.
Bike riding along the Ping River is a unique experience in which you get to breathe in the local atmosphere that makes Chiang Mai so special.
For food sampling we will frequent a local bakery where we shall savour a delicious sweet bun whilst watching the bakery produce many other different regional products.
At the market we see the same products back in small traditional shops; and here you have the opportunity to sample some of the most delicious and exotic fruits and other snacks.
During the Colors of Chiang Mai bicycle tour, we stop every hour for a short rest and provide you with drinking water or a soft drink. Halfway through the trip we provide a small meal of local Thai cuisine and a Chiang Mai favorite “Khao Soy Kai” in a local restaurant. Discover the hidden places of Chiang Mai through this recreational, cultural and educational half day Chiang Mai bicycle tour. Join this outdoor adventure to the unbeaten paths and to sites where old traditions continue to live on.
