Leave from the jetty at Wat Chai Mongkol and travel north out of the city. The river soon shows its true rural identity as city bridges pass from view and are replaced by scenes of wide water stretching from green tree-lined bank to bank. Kids play...more

I have never spent such an intolerable, unedifying two hours. We were subjected to this torture because our tour agency fit it into our schedule without informing us.
First, the food was simply disgusting - bland and cold, a desecration of the produce out of...More
We went on a sunny afternoon and it was quite pleasant to go up the river (about 8 KM), stop at their small farm and dinner location, have fruit and juice and return. Worth the trip and nice to see the houses, hotels and restaurants...More
Went private me and my other half, it was the best tour just two of us and the boat driver was amazing.

Thank you very much. And hope see you next time again. Have a good weekend.
Everything about this outing is fabulous, from the friendly welcoming locals to the fresh river breezes, the insight into life beside this Chiang Mai river to the delicious food served. Well worth a couple of hours

It was one of the less expensive tours we did, I think it was less than 1,000 baht for 2 people (we did the half day morning trip to farmers hut - had a really yummy lunch there for an additional 100 baht) and we booked directly through our hotel concierge. Transfer to and from the jetty was included and there was no way we would have found it on our own!

In regards to the Mae Ping River Cruise, we just turned up at the wharf, We too, were a party of 4, and they accommodated us on the very next cruise leaving. Our party included 2 seniors, 1 adult and a 6 year old. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed being on the river with its sights, & loved the farm at the refreshment stop. Definitely not to be missed. Good luck. I hope you you enjoy this Thai experience.
