Tour Description:

We will pick you up from your hotel at Chiang Mai before we transfer to our starting point of the cycling journey. Our starting point for our cycling journey today will be the historical ruins of Wiang Khum Kham located on the banks of Ping River and just a short distance from Chiang Mai. Wiang Khum Kham is the first Mon settlement dating back to the 11th century. It is constructed to be part of the Haripunchai Kingdom but is later abandoned due to floods. However, the ruins are still standing strong now after being excavated not long ago. There are many interesting things to see at the ruins such as tablets with Mon inscription, sculptures, earthenware and many more. This is the perfect location to start our cycling journey towards the ancient Lamphun.

We will pass through lots of quiet country roads and farmland on our way to Lamphun, or Hariphunchai as it once was called. You will be able to look at the Lanna way of life in the countryside. Our cycling journey will bring us further into fruit orchards with various seasonal fruits such as mangoes, lychees, longans, jackfruit, durian and many more. Next continuing on our journey, we will pass through small local villages by the Ping River with warm and friendly villagers. You will be able to take a leisure ride on the countrysides while enjoying the amazing countryside views on your bicycle. We will also take some time and stop to try the local delights sold at road-side stalls and small markets.

Upon reaching the ancient city of Lamphun, we will cycle around the ancient city walls and stop to visit the oldest and holiest stupa in Thailand which is built in 1044, Wat Phra That Hariphunchai. The 46 metres tall golden chedi or stupa is a result of careful restoration work of a Chiang Mai king in 1443. This region was originally ruled by the legendary Mon Queen Chama Tewi and precedes Chiang Mai by 700 years. After a short tour around the area, we will go to a riverside restaurant to have lunch and enjoy the local Lanna cuisine.  After that, we will also explore the lively markets in Lamphun where fresh fruits from the orchards before will be sold.
