A boat trip on the Ping River is an ideal way to spend a relaxing afternoon in Chiang Mai, being nourished by nature and the healing arts of traditional Northern Thai massage.
Our guide will call for you at 1pm and join you for a quiet two-hour cruise up the Mae Ping, Chiang Mai's mother river. Along the way you will pass by scenes of riverside life, rural farms, Thai mansions, ancient trees, and stretches of jungle greenery. The special beauty of Chiang Mai is gradually revealed, presenting many opportunities for photo enthusiasts.
What could be a better way to end the afternoon than in the hands of a maw nuat (a traditional "massage doctor")? Spend two hours of heaven enjoying the skills unique to Thai massage, famous for its healthful and cleansing qualities. Begin with a fragrant herbal steam bath, followed by gentle stretching, pressing and kneading of your muscles, vascular and cardinal energy points. Return to your hotel utterly relaxed and energized.
