Optional Activities
Bangkok Canal Tour with Dinner This afternoon, embark on a long tail boat ride along the Chao Phraya River. Pass by Wat Arun, "Temple of Dawn" and other iconic landmarks. Take in scenic views of both banks of the river as you glide through the water and observe the simple life of the locals living along the river. Afterwards, travel to dinner on a tuk-tuk, Thailand's popular three-wheeled motorized taxi, to a local restaurant before returning to your hotel. OnDay : 4 Price : $50 Half Day Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden with lunch This morning, visit the Queen Sirikit Botanic Garden (QSBG), located in the foothills of the Doi Suthep-Pui mountains north of Chiang Mai. QSBG was established in 1993, as the first botanical garden in Thailand. It covers an area of 6,500 acres and is named after Queen Sirikit. Follow the paths and take your time as you stroll through the lush grounds covered with exotic types of trees, plants and flowers. After your visit, stop for lunch at a local restaurant. Approximate tour duration is 4 hours. OnDay : 10 Price : $39 Half Day Grand Palace & Emerald Buddha Morning tour of Wat Phra Kaew, the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, and the adjoining Grand Palace. Together they form the most impressive sights for visitors to Bangkok. Wat Phra Kaew consists of over 100 brightly colored buildings, golden spires and glittering mosaics, dating back to 1782, when Bangkok was founded. From Wat Phra Kaew continue to the Grand Palace. Despite the proximity of the two, there's a distinct contrast in style between the Thai-inspired Wat Phra Kaew and the European designs of the Grand Palace. It is important to note that this palace is used now only for occasional ceremonial purposes and is no longer the royal residence. Approximate tour duration is 4 hours. OnDay : 4 Price : $38 Half Day Mae Chan Hill Tribe Village The tour departs Chiang Rai City in the morning for the drive to visit Hill Tribe at the foothill of Mae Chan. Upon arrival, change vehicles to the local Thai Combi which takes you up to the hill tribes, namely the Akha, Long Neck and Palong. See this unique way of life and culture of the tribes that is still maintained today. This tour requires walking up several steps as well as uneven pavement and trails to get to the small village. Approximate tour duration is 5 hours. OnDay : 9 Price : $22 Traditional Thai Massage A trip to Thailand is not complete without experiencing a traditional Thai Massage! Unlike other types of massages, in Thailand your masseuse will stretch, bend, and contort your body into various positions, known to quickly ease the stress of muscle tension and aids in curing minor illnesses. A set of personal cotton clothing will be given to you to wear during the massage. Approximate tour duration is 1 hour. Gratuity is not included. OnDay : 10 Price : $32
