Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your hotel in downtown Chiang Mai at your selected departure time and proceed straight to the dock. You'll board a typical riverboat for a gentle cruise along the Mae Ping River. Observe the lifestyle of the local people whose traditional wooden homes and modern residences line the riverbank.

    You'll stop off at a farm that grows its own fruit and vegetables. Learn about the cultivation of jasmine rice and the medicinal and culinary uses of a variety of herbs that are tended and harvested in traditional fashion. Taste a selection of seasonal fruit in combination with lemongrass and other herbal juices. The highlight is a farmhouse lunch of khao soi — delicious noodles in a spicy curry broth.

    After your tasty meal, you'll return directly to your hotel.

    Lovely way to spend a few hours. Shame about the annoying Dutch fella who nearly was sitting on my lap videoing the whole experience while missing the whole experience at the same time. He must be a very interesting vlogger. Great trip though 😃
