Doi Suthep zone
For this route, most of them only come to Doi Suthep because tour groups have many other highlight programs. But I usually do Hmong Doi Pui and What Phra That Doi Suthep half-day tours. Once in a while, there will be a stop at Bhu Ping Palace. As for Khun Chang Khian Highland, we go only in January when the flowers bloom.
- Sights to see
- Wat Phra That Doi Suthep
- Bhu Ping Palace
- Hmong Doi Pui Village
- Doi Pui Summit
- Khun Chang Khian Highland
We usually begin our journey in the morning and travel to Hmong Doi Pui Village before returning to Bhu Ping Palace and Wat Phra That Doi Suthep. We’ll then drive down to Kaeng Ron Baan Suan for lunch.
If you started your journey in the afternoon, you must buy your ticket and enter Bhu Ping Palace before 3:30 p.m. It’s also possible to stop at a roadside viewpoint on the way down before it gets dark.
As for the top of Doi Pui, not many people go up there. Maybe it’s because the road is narrow in one lane. This route can also visit Khun Chang Khian Highland Agricultural Research and Training Station. It’s fantastic if you travel in a four-wheeled vehicle.
Tourists flock to see the pink flowers, which resemble cherry blossoms, in January, earning the nickname Sakura in Thailand.
Mae Rim Loop
There are many attractions. It’s also very popular during both the low and high seasons. Starting from Highway 107 and along both sides of Road 1096, which can circle Doi Suthep to the south and also back into the city.
It is dominated by elephant shows, visiting the different tribes of Baan Tong Luang Village, various flora and fauna, a beautiful viewpoint and delicious restaurants.
You’ll be able to spend the day enjoying yourself in this zone. You’ll be able to spend the day enjoying yourself in this zone. Visit the Orchid-Butterfly Farm to see a large collection of different types of colorful exotic year-round-bloom orchids or join the outdoor activities on this route.
Mae Sa Elephant Camp and Baan Tong Luang Village, which includes many hill tribes for you to visit, are the most frequently visited places by me. You may be able to find your favorite places along this route. including popular restaurants and coffee shops.
In the morning, we started to see an elephant show at Mae Sa Elephant. Elephant bathing at 9:30 am and then a major show at 10 am for an hour. After that, we go to Baan Tong Luang Village before lunch. In the afternoon, we will follow your preference around here.
Mae Taeng zone
This zone contains all elephant-related activities, making it a mini adventure. Plenty of elephant business and rafting. This route is made up of elephant camps, bamboo rafting, mini-treks, and adventures that will keep you entertained for the entire day. Many travel agencies in downtown appear to sell elephant tours with ease.
The neighborhood also includes a variety of accommodations, homestays, farm stays, camping, and waterfalls. It is also a popular starting point for hiking trails. See along route 3052.
Mae Ngat zone
A simple day might include a visit to Wat Ban Den, a picnic lunch, taking a mini-climb up the cliff, and a swim at Bua Tong Sticky Waterfall.
This zone can do a leisurely day trip from the city and add more destinations that can be stopped at. Go to see the Pagoda Center at Wat Ban Den first. Then go for a picnic lunch at Bua Tong Sticky Waterfall.
Clear and warm water flows out of the underground at a constant rate because there is a constant current all the time. We can travel all year round.
As a result, minerals in the water dissolve the cliffs and rocks, turning them into limestone crystals. Without slipping, we can walk up, climb, and hang a rope. The kids will enjoy the natural pond.
Doi Inthanon zone
Full-day trip Doi Inthanon is a significant and well-known holiday. If you travel with a driver who is familiar with the area, he’ll give you a complete tour.
If you’re already planning a trip to Doi Inthanon, take a look at 1 Day Doi Inthanon, where the lowland zone’s variants must be separated due to a lack of time.
Along Route 1013, the lowland zone will be the Mae Wang District, which includes waterfalls, elephant camps, and rafting. Pha Chor Canyon is accessible via Route 108 [the longest road to Mae Hong Son]. On the way back, Route 3035 leads to private water activities in Chiang Mai Canyon.
Usually, I would take my clients to have a coffee at Kao Mai Lanna Resort first. Just enter inside a bit to Café. As this is a popular photo shoot location, there are rooms converted from an ancient tobacco curing house, surrounded by lychee orchards and beautiful large trees. Or if you just want to cool off in the afternoon, that’s great too.
And then, we will go on a mini-trek at Pha Chor before having lunch at one of my favorite restaurants, “Salween Restaurant.” There is a unique and recommended fish menu at this restaurant. In the afternoon, we will do water activities at Chiang Mai Canyon and back to town.
San Kamphaeng loop
It is another loop that is gaining popularity because Thai tourist is going to Ban Mae Kampong, which is a small village. There will be crowded with people and terrible traffic on the narrow road.
But we do have a choice to make a relaxing day with many other attractions, especially hot springs, which are useful and very cheap. Both are San Kamphaeng Hot Spring and Doi Saket Hot Spring very useful.
On the way, you can stop to visit The Handicraft Center in San Kam Phaeng District to see the local people making handicrafts including lacquer ware, silverware, hand-woven textiles of silk, and saa paper umbrella, which is hand-painted in a variety of designs.
