08:00am or 13:30pm  Pick up at your Hotel in Chiang Mai.

In the West of the city lies Wat Suan Dok. Built by King Kuna, the large white chedi towers above the
numerous small ones and contains the ashes of the Lanna King and the remains of many generations of
the old Chiang Mai Royal family. A short distance from Suan Dok Gate (Western Gate) is Wat Phra Singh.
First built during the reign of Phra Chao Kham Fu (1328-1335) the temple compound includes the Lai Kam
Chapel and the abbot of this important temple is the head of the local religious administration. Lying smack
in the heart of the city (almost right in the middle of the square-walled city) is Wat Chedi Luang. The large
chedi (the biggest in the city) behind the viharn was constructed by King Saen Muang Ma around 1401.
Originally 90 meters high, it is now a mere 40 meters as the result of an earthquake in 1545. A small building
near the main entrance encloses the "Sao Intakin" (spirit of the city). Last but not least is Wat Chiang Mun.
Lying in the Northern part of the old walled city, it is the oldest temple within the city walls. Constructed by
King Mengrai (1296-1311) the founder of Chiang Mai, it is said that the king spent his last years at this temple.
After all this heavy stuff, how about something light.


Drive around the old city to see the moat surrounding it and the ruins of the city gates. Then visit the largest
central market, Warorot Market, alive with its daily hustle and bustle. Exotic fresh fruits, preserved food,
local delicacies, clothes galore, flowers and other nick nacks, all at reasonable prices.

12:00 pm or 16:00pm  Then transfer back to the Hotel.
