Chiang Mai is rightfully called Thailand's "Orchid of the North." As amazing as its cultural attractions may be, nature's magic takes center stage in this charming place. Take some time away from the city to discover wonders and peaceful beauty upcountry. Take a day to soak up the natural wonders in the Chiang Mai countryside.

This morning your guide will whisk you off  with private car and driver to visit some of the sensational natural wonders hidden in the lush countryside surrounding the Northern capital.

Take a day to get out of the city to explore some of the natural wonders in the countryside surrounding Chiang Mai, with a private car, driver and guide. You have a lot of options, and we will help you narrow down your program before you travel. We think Doi Inthanon National Park has the most too to offer first time visitors, but your guide can suggest other options.

Where you go and what you see is up to you. You may select activities from a palette of colorful options: orchid and butterfly farms, jungle-encircled waterfalls, cave sanctuaries filled with sacred rock formations, natural hot springs with therapeutic massage and mineral pools for soaking, or remote hill-tribe villages, and one of Thailand's most sensational national parks. There are a lot of options  to choose from. However, our top pick isDoi Inthanon National Park. Doi Inthanon is Thaland's tallest mountain. It's home to spectacular waterfals, a cloud forest, wild orchids, temples, vistas and more. You can drive almost all the way to the top. Near the summit is an easy walking trail.

Doi Inthanon is only one of many options. You can discuss others with your guide, particularly if you have something special in mind.
