Tour Description

Explore Chiang Mai after Dark by samlor

Your evening Explore Chiang Mai after Dark by samlor will start at Thapae Gate at 1900.  Your drivers will wait for you. Get into your samlor for a nice and relaxing ride through Chiang Mai’s backstreet in the coolness of the early evening.
We make our way through small alleys to Wat Laam Chang, the “Elephant Stable Temple”. This is the place where centuries ago the Royal Elephants were kept. Wat Laam Chang has a very old and attractive brick chedi.  We continue to Wat Chiang Man. The ride is cool and pleasant. Chiang Mai looks very different after dark. Traffic is less than during daytime. Both Wat Laam Chang and Wat Chiang Man are not illuminated at night but are still great to visit.  We head for Wat Phra Singh. This is probably Chiang Mai’s most revered temple. Wat Phra Singh currently houses Phra Chao Thong Tip, the most venerated Buddha statue in northern Thailand. Wat Phra Singh is beautiful after dark. We spend some time here.
From Wat Phra Sing we make our way to Wat Chedi Luang. This is probably Chiang Mai’s most visited temple with its imposing characteristic chedi. An earthquake in 1545 damaged the chedi. The temple complex is illuminated. Next door to Wat Chedi Luang is Wat Phantao where we stop briefly.
We pass Wat Intakin and the Three Kings Monument.  We continue to Thapae Gate and head for the Warorot Market. Here we walk along the flower market. Continue to the Night Bazar where this tour will end. We will drop you off at a place of your choosing at around 2100. This is the end of your Explore Chiang Mai after Dark tour by samlor. Say goodbye to your drivers and enjoy wandering around the Night Bazar on your own.
Transfer back to the hotel on own.
