Day 1 - Welcome to Chiang Mai!
Today you will fly to Chiang Mai. Upon arrival,your private guide is waiting for you at the airport to take you by private car to your hotel. Chiang Mai, with its lovely Lanna temples, charming traditions, unique food, family-friendly attractions and stunning setting is a gem in Thailand’s northern hills. There’s so much for tourists to do here, from cultural exploration to adventurous treks and food tours.
The Chiang Mai Night Market is open 7 days a week but many think the Sunday Night Market is the best place to go for traditional handicrafts and relaxed, friendly atmosphere. You can also stop on Nimmanhaemin Road to check out some of the area’s fun boutiques and great restaurants.
Day 2 - Loy Ktathong & Yee Peng festival
This morning, you will visit Chiangmai city tour by TukTuk, include Wat Pra Singh, It is one of over 200 ancient Buddhist temples located around the city, one of the most well regarded examples of Lanna architecture. And Wat Chedi Luang, The temple is the site of an enormous pagoda, originally 280 feet high, and which was partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1545. Then transfer by minivan to Warorot Market, to see and feel the real northern people’s way of life.
Lunch at a local restaurant before transfering to Doi Suthep Temple, the most sacred temple upon the hill with its enormous mythological Nagas staircase of 306 steps and inside the cloister is an intriguing copper-placed chedi topped by five-tier gold parasol, which contains relics of Lord Buddha.
Evening transfer to join the Loy Krathong and Yipeng festival at Naowarat bridge. Both of the Loy Krathong & Yee Peng Festivals are crebrating during October or November, if you come to Thailand during this time, you will be treated with a romantic view of waterways and skies across the country all lit up with floating krathongs and lanterns. While they are two different festivals, they’re usually celebrated at the same time. For the most part, Yee Peng is only celebrated in North Thailand while Loy Krathong is celebrated throughout the country. For Loy Krathong, decorated mini rafts are set afloat on the water while for Yee Peng, paper lanterns are released into the sky.Transfer back to hotel.
Yi Peng, a festival of lights celebrated mainly in the north of Thailand, overlaps with Loy Krathong, which is celebrated during the full moon of November and is Thailand's 2nd most important festival after Songkran. It is a time to be with family and friends and to make merit. People gather near lakes, rivers and canals to launch paper lanterns into the sky, and to float their 'krathongs' with loved ones. Krathongs are circular rafts made from banana tree trunks, which are decorated with flowers, candles and incence sticks. These offerings create a wondeful show of lights, both in the sky and on any body of water. It is believed that if you and your partner's rafts stay together after being launched, you will have a happy future together.
