Chiang Mai Basics

Our Program for Return Guests

Day One: Settle In to Chiang Mai's Gentle Rhythm

Arrive in Chiang Mai and we'll be on hand to greet you and whisk you to your hotel so that you can settle in as quickly as possible. No doubt you'll have some favorite places in mind that you'd like to revisit. You may also add optional side trips to places you have not visited before.

Day Two: Private Sightseeing & Nightlife

Plan your own schedule today with our private guidewho is at your service from ten in the morning until ten in the evening for shopping, sight-seeing, hunting up old friends, or discovering popular new hang-outs. Hire a tuk-tuk to breeze around the city or venture through some of Chiang Mai's charming neighborhoods on foot. During the afternoon and evening, your guide will introduce you to newly-opened venueswhich have popped up since your last visit, help you negotiate the best prices for those treasures you plan to shop for, and introduce you special restaurants that tourists have not yet discovered. As Thais love to say, "Up to you, boss."

Day Three: Off to Your Next Adventure

Free time until your transfer to the airport. From Chiang Mai it is a short plane ride to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Luang Prabang, one of the Wonders of Asia. Or, connect to Phuket Islandfor some fun in the sun, or back to Bangkok.

Can I stay longer? Of course you can!

You can easily add as many extra nights in Chiang Mai as you like. We have plenty of interesting optional day tripsto make a longer stay both fun and interesting. We are also happy to arrange custom sightseeing based on your personal interests if you like.
