spent 4 days 3 nights in ChingMai. Day 1 arriving in early afternoon, sign up for a cooking school that night. Joined this morning tour on Day 2, and went for zip line in the afternoon. Went for a performance dinner at night at Mandarin Oriental. Day 3 signed up for a full day tour to Ching Rai black, white and blue temples. Day 4 just wondering in the resort, city, spa and heading to airport. It is an unforgettable experience.
I am glad I chose this tour to see Wat Doi Suthep. While there are a lot of tours that will take you to the top of the mountain and the temple, it was really nice to get there early in the morning before the crowds arrived. There were only a few people meandering around when we got there, so it made it easy to get nice pictures and be able to reflect a bit in the quiet surroundings as the guide explained the meaning of the different statues. The giving of alms and the visit to the meditation spot were also nice and the guide was very open and informative and explained many aspects of the Buddhist beliefs and practices. After a quick late breakfast, I was back to my hotel by 10:00 which gave me plenty of time for other activities.
Nice tour. My only complaint is that I was thee only person on my tour and the guide seemed unwilling to adjust his routine to accommodate me. I am a practicing Buddhist and would have liked to have had more time for prayer and reflection.
Una experiencia única, ser parte del día a día como un tailandés, estuvo fuera de serie. No importó madrugar. Nuestro guía excelente persona. Lo recomiendo
Absolutely Fabulous! Our tour guide Aittipol Keelawong was the best! Very thorough and considerate.
This was an amazing tour! Our guide was so knowledgeable and also had lots of experience to share from his times staying at Buddhist monasteries. The lunch of Khao Soy was amazing and delicious. My father and I had a great time on this tour!
Our guide Sam was awesome! Learned so much from him about the history and culture at both temples we had the pleasure to visit. Getting to give the monks our offering and be able to see and be apart of the process was a once in a lifetime experience. We were blessed by one of the monks and received Sai Sin bracelets. We also went to a local restaurant and had some amazing lunch. Great tour if you really want to get the temple experience and want to be able to ask questions to someone who speaks English.
Simply put, the tour was amazing and it was a highlight of our vacation. Our guide, Ping, was incredibly personable and his knowledge of the monk rituals and temple history made every stop we made more meaningful. I mentioned to Ping that we would probably visit Wat Pha Lat, as love photographing old architecture. he was incredibly flexible in making the stop there, as well as adjusting our visits to older temples. Finally, the stop at a well regarded Khao soy restaurant was a delicious ending to our wonderful day. It was a special experience to give alms with a local community. I highly recommend this tour and thank Ping and his driver for a fantastic day.
We loved this tour!! We had the opportunity to give alms to the monks and to visit the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Temple. Our guide, Preecha was the best, he explained us everything and has ample knowledge about Thailand's history and Buddhism. Highly recommended.
I was traveling solo, so this was a private tour. Very interesting to learn more about the Bhuddist monk culture from a former monk. He made sure that I understood their lives and some of their customs. He also took a ton of pictures of me and ensured I had a great experience. It was a great day out. Driver was nice and did a great job! Lunch was tasty as well!
