Want to experience a day of Buddhist culture and temple-hopping in Chiang Mai? We know just what to do! Come with me, a Chiang Mai local expert for a half-day Buddhist-themed experience you won't find anywhere else! *Here's what we'll do from top to bottom* I'll pick you up from your hotel in Chiang Mai area. 1.) Start off your morning with alms offering and giving food to local Buddhist monks. We believe that offering food to monks every morning will bring us good karma :) 2.) Visit Doi Suthep Temple, Chiang Mai's most famous landmark located on the hills overlooking the city view. Here, you can see the Golden Pagoda decorated in Lanna style. 3.) Then, we'll head to the "hidden temple" in the forest of Chiang Mai. This temple is called Wat Pha Lat, and it's where Buddhist monks come to meditate away from the city. 4.) Tour over to Wat Umong or literally, "Tunnel Temple". This temple is 700 years old and is one of the oldest in Chiang Mai. 5.) Now, we're at the oldest and also the largest temple in Chiang Mai, Wat Chiang Man. 6.) Visit Wat Phra Singh, Chiang Mai's second-most venerated temple. 7.) Visit the last temple at Wat Chedi Luang, a temple that survived an earthquake in the past. *We'll then have a local Thai-style lunch, and head back to your hotel afterwards!* Yes, this is all in half a day, so if you want to do some temple-hopping with me, just let me know!
Sa-Was-Dee-Ka (Hello! in Thai). I’m Emma, working with my lovely company called TakeMeTour. My personal goal is to host travelers from around the world with the best authentic experience in Thailand. My best co-host (Minty) will take you on this trip. She loves exploring the city and Chiang Mai has so many temples such as Wat Pha Lat, Doi Suthep Temple, Wat Chiang Man, and Wat Umong that are significant for the local Buddhists. She's also a Buddhist herself, and a lover of Chiang Mai's history, so she would love to open your eyes and ears! Also, will show you how locals take part in alms offering and food giving to the Buddhist monks every morning. We're always eager to show travelers from all over the world a good time. We're sure you will get more unique experience from us than what’s recommended in the guidebooks!
