Jump aboard an environmentally-friendly electric tuk-tuk to enjoy a learning journey getting to grips with Thai culture. Visitors will leave with an appreciation of two core tenets of Chiang Mai culture – its Buddhist roots and ancient Lanna customs.

The first stop is a visit to Wat Ket Karam. This temple is the oldest on the eastern bank of the Ping River, first established in 1428. Within the courtyard of the temple, there is a fascinating community museum that features numerous ancient artefacts.

The museum also endeavours to weave the narrative of Chiang Mai in the 20th and 19th centuries through a series of photography-based exhibits.

Admire the decorative golden motifs throughout the temple while our knowledgeable guide can explain the significance of any Buddhist imagery and practices.

After this first initiation into Buddhism, we’ll then make stops at Wat Chedi Luang, Wat Phra Sigh, and Wat Suan Dok, all within the walls of the old city, while also stopping by the Three Kings Monument that celebrates the founders of the city.

Each of these temples offers a unique style and interpretation of Buddhism in Chiang Mai, with the historical ruins at Chedi Luang contrasting with the ornate luxury of Wat Phra Singh.

We’ll then finish up our trip at The Lanna Traditional House Museum, a Centre for promoting Lanna culture. This outdoor museum is a neatly assembled selection of buildings presenting traditional Lanna architecture and handicrafts.

The museum works on the principle that we can gain insights into the traditional Lanna way of life by studying the various housing styles and designs of the Lanna people.
