HIGHLIGHTS

  • Gaze in amazement upon the strange rock formations of Phae Muang Phi National Park
  • Travel by horse-drawn cart through the old, narrow streets of Lampang
  • Be amazed by the history and architectural splendor of northern Thailand's most magnificent temples

DETAILED DECRIPTION

This three-day tour of Northern Thailand provides a fascinating window to the past. A trek through the stone formations of Phae Muang Phi, or ‘Ghost Canyon,’ demonstrates the power and ware of time on even nature's toughest elements. Next, visit Phrae, where a phantom teak industry has left behind an interesting fusion of European and Asian influence. Take in spectacular sights, including 15th-century temples, along the way to your next destination of Lampang. Here, you will tour the city by horse and cart and examine the crumbling walls around it.

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Phrae

Upon arrival in Phrae, your guide will greet you and escort you to a local restaurant for lunch. This afternoon, you will visit Phae Muang Phi Forest Park, a natural landmark of the north. The park is full of small-to-medium size geological formations. Estimated to be as old as 30,000 years, the mushroom-shaped rock pillars are the result of subsidence and erosion over the centuries. Muang Phi translated means ‘ghost town’ as the park is the subject of many local fables. Return to Phrae and check in to the Heuan Na Na Boutique Hotel for a good night’s rest.

DAY 2: Phrae to Lampang

The day begins with a short tour of the walled city of Phrae, known as the Teak capital of Thailand a century past. Once a logging hub of the British and Danish, foreign business withdrew when resources ran out. Next, visit Khum Chao Luang, residence of Phrae’s former ruler. Built in 1892, the architectural style reflects a fusion of European and Thai influence, a remnant of the teak logging past. Stop by the Vongburi House, a teak house that was built by one of the prominent families of the area and is now a private museum. Following lunch, visit some of Phrae’s most fascinating temples – Wat Luang and Wat Phra That Cho Hae.  Later in the day, you will be transferred by private vehicle to the city of Lampang. Spend the night at Auangkham Resort, a boutique hotel in the center of Lampang.

DAY 3: Lampang to Chiang Mai

Prepare for a full day of sightseeing, beginning with stops at the Moungngwezin House and the magnificent Wat Phra Kaeo Don Tao, a stunning 15th-century temple. Sit back in a horse-drawn cart and take in the sights of Lampang. Pass along Wat Si Rong Muang, a stunning Burmese-style temple. Enjoy lunch beside the River Wang at the Riverside Restaurant before visiting Wat Phrathat Lampang Luang, one of the most magnificent temples in Northern Thailand. Heading toward Chiang Mai, stop at the vibrant Thung Kwian Market and Friends of Asian Elephant Foundation. You will be driven by private vehicle to your hotel in Chiang Mai.
