Mae Ping River Cruise
To feel the essence of Chiang Mai, take a cruise along the Mae Ping River. An exotic boat takes you to a traditional farmhouse where kitchen herbs, fruit and vegetables are grown in the garden. The trip takes around two hours, with fruit and drinks provided. You may also opt for an enticing evening dinner cruise where you can relish your meal as you relish the setting sun. Boats leave from the pier at Wat Chai Mongkol on Charoenprathet Road or from The Riverside Restaurant.
This was a great way to see some of Chiang Mai from a different perspective. My tour guide was lovely and very informative, though his English wasn't terrific but he tried very hard. The herb farm was interesting and I loved the juices, and tropical fruits on offer. The trip took only 2 hours so was a nice way to escape for a short time and was good value for money.
