Chiangmai City Historic Tour
You must register using a form:
Come and join us on a very unique chiangmai city historic tour. We will meet at Wat Phra Singh gate at 9am. Then hop on to the sightseeing tram (Keaw Suay Hom) and learn about the history and meanings behind important Chiangmai landmarks (the gates, the conners, important temples etc). Then we will visit the amazing Chiangmai Silver temple (Wat Sri Suphan), followed by a workshop where we will make Thai flower offering bouquets.
Once we are back at Wat Phra Singh, I and my partner will give you a free tour of this very important temple. We will tell you the fascinating stories behind the over 150 years old wall painting of Wihan Laikum (the only building in Chiangmai with wall painting depicting everyday Lanna people).
We are local history enthusiasts so you will hear stories you won’t hear from the official guides 🙂
