TWO DAY CHIANG MAI TOUR
Day 1: Discover the AKA Tribe
8:00 am: The AKA Tribe is an ethnic group who lives is small villages in the mountains of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos.
Visit the Weng Pa Pao market, where we will buy food that the people of the tribe will cook for us later on.
This area of Chiang Mai is full of day and night markets.
About 100 km from Chiang Mai we will take a detour in the mountains, where the village of Aka is located. A local girl from the village will be our tour guide.
The AKA tribe comes originally from China. You will be surprised to see two churches in the village. How did these people, coming from China, end up living here in Thailand? These and other questions you can ask to your tour guide.
The village is located between two valleys, near Chiang Rai and Myanmar. This journey is of great beauty. Villagers will welcome us after a visit to the town and cook for us the food that we bought in the market.
Afterwards, we will go to our hotel in Chiang Rai, from there you can go to see the night market and enjoy the city.
(There is no fixed arrival time because the tour is private and always depends on the pace and needs of the group, although it is usually around the 18:00.)
Night in hotel: Nak Nakara
Day 2: Golden Triangle and temples of CHIANG MAI.
8:30 am: The Golden Triangle is the area where the borders of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos coincide across the Mekong River.
Expect a new full day tour of experiences:
Golden Triangle and the most modern temples in Thailand!
Accompanied by your tour guide we will visit the Ban Daam Museum (Black House).
This Museum is a very mysterious place where contradictory feelings are experienced, bones and skins of stuffed animals, a place of mystery, mixed with an atmosphere of Vikings.
The Golden Triangle was once a piece of land without law dominated by drug dealers. It was the territory of opium.
One of the true attractiveness of the area is the Mekong River, the 10th longest in the world and the 3rd in Asia.
At the same point is located the huge and disconcerting, as well as popular: “Happy Buddha”.
We continue to the temple of Wat Khao Phra That Doi Phu from where you will get a better view of the Golden Triangle. This is one of those images that people take away as a great memory…
The next stop is the opium house, one of the most interesting museums in Thailand, and a must see. The Museum tells the story of opium in the world and Thailand.
Wat Ron Kung (White temple Chiang Mai):
The artist Chalermchai Kositpipat, said that to reach heaven one must walk through hell and arms passing the skull of this White Temple. It has little to do with the rest of Buddhist temples that we can see in Thailand. It started in 1997 and still has no end date. It has become one of the main tourist attractions.
